Have the Greens managed to hike up Brighton Council Tax by 6% yet ? The meeting was into over 6 six hours last night. The whole country is watching the outcome. I sincerely hope not.

Didn't I see a report recently that stated the Labour (with Tory support) were trying to push through a supplementary tax in some of the council estates that effectively increased the council tax got those areas by 42 percent ?

5.9% will never happen, but even if it did Brighton council tax would still be much cheaper than Lewes

Have the Greens seen the forward accounts, so are desperate not to get re-elected?

If you let it.
I've seen the future it isn't green (or orange).

Why doesn't Mr KitKat simply follow the route taken in Lewes, keep Council Tax within the 2% limit aso that it doesn't trigger a need for a referndum, then whack on an "Open Space" supplementary charge for those living anywhere near a park/green/open space..... a bit of lateral thinking and Kitkat and his fellow tree huggers could soon come up with any number of "bolt on" charges, and thus neatly sidestep the 2% cap...though maybe the opposition parties may have a bit more backbone in Brighton than in Lewes and might actually fight to stop the Greens using this back door tactic.

I got a random Council Tax Rebate last month from out of the blue with no explanation. Not complaining mind

Where can I register my disgust concerning the lack of a robust response to the suffering of our planet without supporting some of the quite frankly mad ideas of the green party? Why on earth don"t they stick to climate problems? Btw the media has been sadly silent about this pressing problem.
