Tories spin out of control

Hammersmith & Fulham Tories claim that council tax cuts are saving local residents £350.

Except it isn't true. Because the Tories' figures are compared to a theoretical annual increase of 7.7% even though the previous council had announced a real terms cut in council tax for three years from 2006!

And of course the Tories don't mention their £34 million cuts in local services, the closures of schools and community buildings, and the higher fees and charges faced by residents.

Let's hope the council doesn't repeat these Tory lies.
