Judicial Reviews Again

I see that a number of Councils are being threatened with judicial review over changes to Council Tax support.  The government has foisted this problem on to Councils in defiance of the supposed logic of its benefits cuts, to make things simpler and more equitable, simply in order to put blame on local government.  The only silver lining I can see is that the cases will be heard quickly because of their budgetary nature.  However, if any of the Councils lose, the results are likely to be chaos in the simple practicalities of organising their Council tax billing.
