I wonder what caused this Shocked

You allowed to say the b word yet? Although blundering incompetence by government would fit the bill too. We are truly living in Gramsci's interregnum.

Because most people have no idea how they're being governed and the minority who do have lost all hope or are complicit.

He is Trumpesq living on another planet..the audience looked bored and fed up tbh.



Sadly our own politicians are in lala land too
54% council tax increase in Llanelli ?

Just read your link Roy. That is a significant rise. I know Dai Darkin. Academically bright ... absolutely no common sense whatsoever. Looks like there's some political posturing going on here as well looking at the article. The real reason for these cash shortages is the miserable settlement Westminster provides for local govt that we inherit via the Barnett formula. I've said it before ... the UK pays around 7% less of its GDP in tax than the average EU country. In cash terms that's £150Bn a year. That's tax that should be paid by those who can most afford it. Instead, cash starved councils are having to raise their tax which will disproportionately affect the less wealthy. Just for context, whilst wages stagnated since 2008, the wealth of the UK's billionaires has grown massively. That's our problem.

It's the town council part of the tax not the county. They county is normally capped. I thought the town tax was too.

Just done the maths - it amounts to an extra £5 a month on our council tax bill.
