Yikes! I see that the duffers in Cecil Square are proposing a 2.46% hike in council tax this year, followed by promised rises of 2.5% over the next four years! Quite why they should be getting any sort of increase, when there are people in Birchington who haven't had their rubbish collected for nine weeks is beyond me. Surely we should be getting a rebate?
Of course, here in the chi-chi south of the island we do pay a little more to keep it exclusive. In fact I would personally be prepared to pay double if Thanet Council promised to keep their grubby, shaky and rather dithery mitts off the place!
