The great VAT swindle

Tory H&F council, which professes to love tax cutting, has failed to pass on the recent cut in VAT to local residents.

People using local sports facilities, libraries and other council services that charge (which have proliferated in the last two years under the Tories) will still have to pay VAT at 17.5% despite the national reduction from 1 December 2008.

This great VAT swindle has even been condemned by the Tories' friends at the Taxpayers Alliance. This is the second time in a week that the Taxpayers Alliance has attacked H&F council - the jolly by Tory cabinet member Cllr Mark Loveday to Cannes has also been exposed (again).
