Letter from John Meadowcroft in The Guardian

What does the decision by the government to cap council tax bills mean?

The decision by the government to cap Council Tax bills demonstrates that the political and practical ceiling to government spending has been reached. While all political parties appear keen to stress that their policies will not reduce government spending, the truth is that such a reduction may be inevitable as the public demand to be given back more of their own money to spend as they see fit.
