Well, it’s all paid for by your council tax contributions and now, according to the Telegraph, you’ll have to pay even more.

The Government are expected to unveil above-inflation council tax increases today, with bills set to rise by an average of 4.2%.

Indeed, since New Labour came to power, council tax revenues have more than doubled to £23.5 billion while the bill for an average band D home has shot up by 85% in the same period.

Tony Blair’s home comes with the job…
