Biggest con trick in Britain

The Tory council in Hammersmith & Fulham is claiming the 'biggest council tax cut in Britain'.

But what does £27 a year off your council tax bill really mean?

First, there are £36 million cuts in local services, particularly hitting the most vulnerable residents. Secondly, there are closures of local facilities and sales of community assets.

And thirdly most people are now paying more than the council tax cut in higher fees and charges for local services. That's why it's the 'biggest con trick in Britain'.
