Are the LibDems Still Proposing a Local Income Tax?
I wonder if our LibDem friends might clarify something for me. Have the LibDems abandoned a local income tax as a replacement for council tax, or not? I ask because I received today one of their Focus leaflets which rambles on about replacing council tax with a fairer alternative, but doesn't quite have the guts to say what that alternative might be. The Axe the Tax website seems to be a little more equivocal on the subject than I seem to remember it used to be - or am I imagining things? What did Ming say about it during the leadership election? Or was it one of those domestic subjects he considered a little beneath him?! I think we should know.
