Fairer taxes are needed say the Lib Dems. What I find a little concerning is that their proposed local income tax would cost easterbunny and me over one thousand pounds per year more than our current council tax arrangements.

And the useless swines still wouldn't collect our rubbish.
The only redeeming argument goes in the south east with higher incomes councils will set lower taxes to get the same budget

True indeed, but one has to wonder how many would. This is the one reason I do agree with the policty, it's bringing control of taxation closer to the electorate. Personally I think more power for decision making needs to be moved locally to engage people in politics again.
