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.
Bah. I was going to proxy my vote northwards and use it for the hairy lefties of the Scottish Socialist Party. But then I found out they're in favour of Scottish independence, which is stupid. Bah. As a council-tax-exempt student I have no qualms with their raising it ;-)

But seriously, if they did raise the council tax (which I will be paying as of next year), I could afford it (though I would like to see vaguely where it's going or something). These views subject to change depending how long I can stand being a penniless teacher...
