Last Friday the TPA was out in St Albans collecting signatures for a petition to lower council tax.

Thankfully some good weather made it a great day for all, with people queuing at times to sign our petition.

We had a marvellous response and will continue these petitions until councils up and down the country take our advice and cut our council tax.  Whatever the weather and whatever the forces against us in Town Halls, central government and the EU, we have to keep fighting.  You and I know our taxes are far too high, but it falls to us to explain it to the people that there is an alternative to ever-increasing high taxes.  Our petitions are just one way.  You can recommend us to people in your community concerned with high taxes by inviting them to join for free here.  You can invite them to email me so I can send them some information about the TPA.  You can write to your local paper to get taxes on the political agenda.  Whatever we do, we must be sure the politicians know we are growing by the day and are not going away. 


As a final note for the day, on our way back we couldn't resist having our picture taken outside the bank we all partly own...Northern Rock.
