Council Tax Changes

The Guardian has an article on the impact of Council Tax Support changes this morning.  The picture it paints is a bleak one.  Of course, Eric Pickles has deliberately set this situation up by requiring each Council to design its own scheme.  At the same time he has cut the funding for the schemes and ensured that it will not be indexed to inflation.  With many Councils also seeing huge cuts in their funding the results are likely to be appalling, which I suspect is exactly what he wants.
