Council tax rise will create more criminals
SO COUNCIL tax is about to take a hike yet again and we can expect hundreds more criminals to emerge.
These are ordinary working class people who have never committed a crime before in their lives but their crime will be that they cannot afford another rise in any bill as they are already struggling to pay present bills.
If one defaults, all particulars are sent to debt collecting agencies who then bombard one with threatening letters, court appearances in your absence and bailiffs. This adds more costs each time which makes no sense to a person who is unlucky enough to be on the bread-line already.
Whenever questioned, the powers that be have no answer to give one when asked where this extra money is supposed to come from when wages haven't risen in accordance. They don't know and don't care. So this is how the innocent criminals are made. Shame on all the greedy, grasping law makers and councils who don't give a damn.
