Despite previous denials, we now find out the Government has been presenting us with “alternate facts”. There was a deal offered to the Tory run Surrey Council to prevent them having to have a referendum ( bad publicity) on raising Council Tax. This privilege has not been offered to other struggling councils, despite the dire situation their public services are in.
I cannot believe what this Government is brazenly getting away with, so many people seem to have lost perspective and fail to be outraged!
