The biggest con of them all

Another week of Tories in H&F crowing about the 3% cut in council tax.

Well, 50p a week isn't worth very much if your streets are filthy, your homes aren't repaired or refurbished, you have lost your home help service or your youth club, and the list goes on and on.

And 50p a week isn't worth very much if you're faced with the 578 new and higher charges introduced by the Tory council in the last two years. From parking, garden waste recycling and childcare to meals on wheels and home care, H&F residents are paying more for local services.

So, don't fall for the con in Conservative.
