Labour-run Birmingham City Council to put up taxes 21%

Taxes are at record levels. There are various good reasons for this, including the costs of dealing with the pandemic and with keeping energy costs down during the energy crisis after Putin's invasion of Ukraine. 

But I am convinced that most people would agree that taxes on ordinary people are far too high, and while we still have a cost of living crisis, putting taxes up further is a really bad idea.

  • Last year, Labour-run Birmingham City Council was forced to declare bankruptcy after years of failure and mismanagement. 
  • Now hardworking Birmingham residents are facing a 21 per cent hike in their bills at a time when they are already facing financial pressures while Labour councillors plot to cut vital local services.

Dogs bark, ducks quack, Labour puts up taxes.
