Medway Labour is pleased to see that our manifesto promise to freeze Council tax has come into effect as the letters land on Medway resident doorsteps.
Labour led on the Council Tax freeze in the Council chamber in 2011 because we wanted to give residents a little extra in tough times.
Contrast this with the Tories; they have just put up VAT on pastries, introduced the Granny Tax on pensioners and have allowed cash for access for the highest office in the land. They are simply without dignity and can not be trusted. Out of touch elitists.
Dont let the same old Tories bully you; in a corner the ruthless and tribal instincts of the right come into clear view. The rank politicisation of the tanker strikes - before the date of the strike and ACAS negotiations have even been announced - show the Tories are playing base politics with the public. They are trying to politicise the strikes and then label Labour the friends of the Unions. It is something out of the 1980s and the public alas dont believe a word of it anymore.
Divide and rule is finished; sadly no one sent the memo to Francis Maude who over-reached today, leading to the prospect of rationing before a strike is even announced. Same old incompetent Tories
It is the same old Tories; Taxing you and your family whilst giving tax breaks to millionaires. Playing politics with employment disputes in an attempt to curry favour with a public struggling because of their economic failure to secure growth. It is base and rootless politics; same old Tories.
Out of touch and in many Council chambers in the UK; soon to be out of office.
