Tories bottle it over council tax

I'm tired and busy so will keep this brief.

The Tories had a chance today to put down a marker on Council Tax. Everyone knows council tax is unfair, regressive and is a system that is failing both in terms of the way people think about it and in terms of its fairness, so the Tories could have announced a full review or that they would look to replace it with a fairer system of their own. But no, instead they have offered a bribe to voters to put up with the tax.

The truth is that a council tax freeze might offer some respite, but it ignores the fact that Council tax is a crap way of collecting local government taxes.
