SO, it's that time of year when our council will put up our council tax on the grounds they don't have enough money.

They have enough money for thousands of useless 20mph signs that nobody adheres to and they have enough money for stupid Norse signs for places like Greasby, like anyone cares and are charging more to be fit in public parks now.

They have enough money to pay larger salaries that are way above similar positions in the workplace and of course themselves.

Next it will be food bins and smaller green bins when the brown bin could accommodate this, without cost.

As Jefferson said: "The amount of tyranny you get, is the exact amount you put up with!"
