"You don't have to be a Socialist to expect on past history that Tories would be more careful with the management of spare money than Socialists"

Thanks for that George. I appreciate it

"The readers of this thread and the other thread (Julian Bell Warns of Further Cuts to Come) can make up their minds whether in a severe financial crisis it was better to give just some individuals 50 or save some of services which may affect us all, but certainly the more vulnerable"

I'm beginning to think that you have no clue how many people actually received the 50 cashback. it was more than "just some individuals". It was around 100,000. Also, there are a great number of people who receive very little for the council tax they pay. It is right that we should provide for the vulnerable members in our community, but we mustn't forget the very large number of people who pay council tax, and ask for very little in return.

"That paltry 50 has not benefitted the borough as a whole"

What do you base this statement on. Local shops in every town centre were struggling with the recession, they provide services and employment in the borough. Why do you think they were not deserving of the cashback and the support that people spending their cashback in their shops would have provided them during very difficult times. Have you heard of the private sector George. Have you heard of individuals who want to make their own decisions George.

George said

"I just wonder how many very important services and jobs would have been saved had the present administration still had that 6M"

Do you accpet that shops in our town centres provide a vital service and employment, or are you only concerned about public sector services and jobs.

I'm still waiting for you and others to explain why the people who pay the bills shouldn't be given back their own money when we receive a windfall and don't spend all their money in the first place.
