Daily here in China and I do not have to pay a fortune in council tax, NORTHING [paid and all the rubbish abled to be recycled is also done daily. In the UK you get what you vote for, remember that when the elections come round again.

What exactly is council tax for? Repairing roads.... Oh they don't do much of that. Emptying bins... Nope, they seemingly don't like that either. Keeping street lights on? They're wanting to reduce them as much as possible. Where is the money going?

Public sector, innit? An explosion of state-sponsored jobs engineered by ZanuLabour. And when the State controls your money, it controls YOU. Think about it - public sector equals union-controlled services; unions control Labour party; State controls your income - it controls YOU. Wake up, people, PLEASE.

Well, a third of council tax goes to pay the gold-plated pensions, where those in receipt can walk out of one job, push their way round the revolving door, and take another job, collecting a golden handshake along the way. And now it seems that the Labour-run NHS in Wales is performing so badly that Welsh residents are travelling to England to take appointments from seriously-ill English people. The Welsh voted for Labour - they should now have to live with that decision, rather than depriving English people of their badly-funded NHS. The public sector needs sorting - urgently - and disinfecting to get rid of socialist freeloaders.
