So do the Liberal Democrats still believe in Local Income Tax?
Amidst all the recent events I missed the Liberal Democrats launching their local election campaign. What's notable is that after months of umming and ahhing about the proposal to replace Council Tax with a Local Income Tax and many senior Lib Dems wanting a review, yet the policy has been made a flagship for the election. Presumably the Liberal Democrats have decided to stop pretending to be a student friendly party, given how the proposals would be damaging for students. Instead they seem to be focusing on the pensioner vote. So some people will be impressed. Is Ian Paisley one of them? What about Waldorf and Statler?
