The conservatives state they would freeze community charge, offering a saving of £200.00 per resident over two years. A vote winner? of course, i for one would love to pay less, but in the real world away from Tory fantasy the truth, the only real way to reduce taxation and keep a sensible level of service is to cut the dramatic levels of waste. Below i offer what the Tories offer you and below that what we should expect under the Tories. A freeze on council tax would mean that there would be a loss of revenue from taxpayers of £2.710m in 2010/11 and a further £2.792m in 2011/12, making a cumulative loss of £5.502m by 2011/12.
Conservatives propose that if they were in Government and councils froze their increases that they would provide a 2% reward. If this is the case, then we would get back £1.807m in both 2010/11 and 2011/12, meaning that the net loss of revenue to the council would be £0.903m in 2010/11 and a further £0.985m in 2011/12, and cumulatively £1.888m by 2011/12. This without precepts or levy.
In real terms the Tory party will offer Cuts. or look at my older post, from one Tory council if you have the Money and are willing to pay – Better CLASS of service
