LIB DEMS AND TORIES – MAKING US PAY MORE TAX AND WASTING OUR MONEY

  • VAT has gone up to 20%, meaning we pay more for clothes, electrical appliances and especially fuel.
  • Surrey County Council admits it pays over £13m a year on temporary staff
  • Surrey County Council spend £2m a year on PR and communications – Surrey’s own spin doctors.
  • Surrey Tories have always claimed that they run the council
    very well financially. Deputy SCC leader David Hodge claimed the council is in
    a very good position. But unaudited SCC accounts show that the council is
    actually £500m in the red, with liabilities exceeding assets. This huge debt is
    because of pension liabilities – caused by Tory councillors cutting back on
    pension contributions in the 1990s, decisions for which council tax payers will
    now have to pay.
