I was under the impression the Liberal Democrats had made Local Income Tax a flagship of their current local election campaign but on the ground the impression is different. A leaflet received by Iain Dale talks about the problems with Council Tax but shies away from proposing an alternative.
So do the Lib Dems actually still believe in Local Income Tax? Or are we once again seeing the party have one policy nationally but another where it's more electorally convenient?
Does anyone even know for certain who the main Lib Dem local government spokesperson is? Or are they very unknown?
