Budget Delay: The Free-Market View

Arch-freemarketeer and local MP for Wokingham, John Redwood, has hit back at the extremists on either side of the Council Tax debate.

While clearly on the side of reducing the tax take in real terms, it would also appear Mr Redwood opposes the public demands by Conservative partisans in Reading for a nominal reduction or freeze [1].

Oranjepan says:
The confrontational approach which has been adopted by both Cllr Cumpsty's Conservatives and Cllr Lovelock's Labour is a blatant gambit designed to avoid any compromise - their duel for political dominance is at the expense of economic good sense and our social well-being.
