Copeland council plans to increase council tax by the highest it can without needing a public referendum while cutting a host of services.
Have your say
I completely agree, it's a really ridiculous form of tax! I have been paying it for over eight years, I'm 25 now.. it's had a really negative impact on my finances over the years, especially towards the start of my career when i was on a low income.Hey but 'tax doesn't have to be taxing' :P
if you can afford 2% mike then i suggest you put more in the pot.
why as a retired pensioner are there people who contrbute nowt but take everything.
lats have the poll tax which was by far much fairer than this obscene tax.
tell me mike why should my Â£120 a month go towards public sector pension,or has i live in allerdale why should it be used towards the white elephant derwent park,i,ve no interest in it so why should i pay towards it.
i think this is a great idea as this will give the council more money to improve a much needed area
