Lib Dem councillors in Kingston back maximum tax rise

News reaches LOWA Towers that the majority Lib Dem council group on Kingston Council is to propose a £30 a year rise in council tax - a few pennies short of the level that would trigger a local referendum on the increase.

Kingston already has the highest council tax in London and with the party seeking to defend its marginal seat in the traditionally Tory Berrylands Ward on the 28th February one can only speculate on the effect of this decision on the ward's hard pressed voters.
