Despite the country facing the worst recession it has faced for 300 years, the Government plans to drop a £1.9 billion council tax rise on families, and a cut to Universal Credit which would see £1000 a year taken from the pockets of millions of struggling families.

This from the same Government that wasted billions of pounds of public money on outsourced contracts that didn’t deliver, but won’t support councils through this crisis.

Labour leader Keir Starmer has called for local councils to step up and work to prevent council tax rises, and for the Tories to listen to the public outcry and cancel the cut to Universal Credit. After a non-binding vote to cancel the cut on Monday 18th of January, carried 278 votes to 0, we have to wait and see if the Government will for once do the right thing.
