With a local income tax most bills will be about 250, not 1000

I'm still trying to decide between them, Plaid Cymru and the Scot Nats.
Which one should I go for? Sounds like Leeds North West is bigger than I
thought.

And the shortfall is made up where exactly?
If council needs 20 million to provide services, and you cut the income
from local residents down to 5 million, where is the other 15 million
coming from?

That's how the council tax started, quite low. Then look what happened in
the last few years.

From single people earning over 50,000 or couples earning over
90,000.

If you one of those then tough, why should little poor old ladies pay
so rich gits like you can life a liv of luxery?

See above.

Rates/council tax ... what ever you call it is used to pay for local
services. Why should a hard working couple with a family have to pay more
than an equivalent family who don't earn as much ... baring in mind that
they're paying for exactly the same services?

Oh dear Labour pre 1979 again. When will people learn that people wish to
minimise tax and income is the easiest form of money to hide. You may wish
to see the figure of the increase in revenue in income tax when it was
reduced from 98% down to 40%. Why do you think raising rates of income tax
will increase revenue? It's all an accountant's dream! I'm sure they'll
sponsor the Lib Dems if you ask nicely.
