Nice to see the BBC putting such a favourable spin on the inflation-busting increase in Council taxes due in April. Note the disclaimer helpfully inserted in the very first sentence and then the use of the CPI to also help make us all feel that we are getting a good deal from the little tyrants that run local Councils. Further, the question is not what inflation is setting at now but rather where will it be in April when the new council taxes kick in! In fairness, Conservative Eric Pickles does get his say – but you have to wade more than half ways down the page to see that.
