Labour bizarrely proposes existing policy on council tax In its attempt to persuade voters to support its candidates in the local elections on 2 May 2019, the Labour group on Charnwood Council has proposed that council tax payers will be able to opt to pay over 10 or 12 months and to choose when they pay. “This would have been a good idea”, commented local Southfields councillor Paul Mercer, “had it not been for the fact that Charnwood Council taxpayers can already opt to pay in one, two, 10 or 12 instalments. They can also choose when they pay.” “Either the Labour group has absolutely no idea about current policy – which is not inconceivable – or they are suggesting that the option of paying in one or two separate instalments should be withdrawn which is hardly going to help ordinary residents decide how they pay their council tax”, continued Paul. “The Labour manifesto claims that it will ‘Deliver first-class services that meet your needs’. The fact that it is attempting to propose existing policies which have been in place for some years as some kind of new innovation suggests that it is struggling to come up with new ideas and that the controlling Conservative group has got it right”, Paul added.
