Most Welsh Taxpayers, I'm sorry to say, will have their already heavy tax burden increased again this year.
Councils throughout the country have in the past few weeks been setting their budgets, seemingly with no thought for taxpayers. Across Wales - from Abergele to Aberdare, Bridgend to Bangor and Cardiff to Conwy - taxpayers are paying more and more each year without seeing any improvement in their services. Indeed, some are deteriorating.
In North Wales, taxpayers in Conwy are being hit by yet another 5 per cent increase in Council Tax for the second year running. In South Wales taxpayers in Newport are having to pay more too. The Welsh Government has shifted blame for the local authority’s misgivings onto Westminster, but that's not good enough. And, of course, this is the same Welsh Government that wastes taxpayers' money and mishandles the NHS.
The TaxPayers' Alliance is touring North Wales campaigning against Council Tax increases. We'd love for you to join us on any of the stops if you can - it's time to tell local politicians that enough is enough.
We will be at the following locations:
