Labour Cabinet give go ahead for one of highest Council tax increases in Wales.

January 31, 2013 8:05 PM

As expected the Labour Cabinet in RCT gave the green light to not only one of the highest Council Tax increases in Wales at 3.95%, but to the tearing up of their Council manifesto.

Prior to the Council election last May they promised to retain weekly refuse collections, pouring scorn on other Councils who had introduced them. Likewise they assured voters that they would not introduce charges for bulky waste collection, and that they would maintain standards of street cleaning and grass cutting.

Just eight months later they have revealed their true colours, breaking all three of those promises to their voters. This of course coming on top of their broken promise to keep the paddling pool.

Blatant manipulation. How can anyone trust anything they say?
