During the past two weeks Councillor Jo Burton - Anston, has delivered copies of Labour’s latest propaganda sheet and page one of this glossy publication states: “Labour. Helping to keep your council tax down in Rotherham”. Really?
Cllr Burton has conveniently forgotten the coalition government froze council tax in 2010 and this freeze will continue until 2015.
RMBC ignores the council tax freeze and is raising our council taxes by 4.7% this month. Compare this with Sheffield where the rise is 2.8% and Barnsley and Doncaster residents will see a council tax rise of 3.9%.
Another Labour lie exposed.
Time for change.
