It’s too little, too late

Have your say

THE front page article (Mail, January 21) regarding the council tax freeze was a case of too little, too late.

Councillor Robbie Payne asserted that the proposals to freeze council tax in the coming year was a “no-brainer”.

Well he would, wouldn’t he?

If Hartlepool Borough Council raised the council tax it wouldn’t qualify for the £1m Government grant.

What council taxpayers should be asking Coun Payne is, if the present Government wasn’t offering the above mentioned £1m grant, would he still be freezing council tax for the coming year?

I feel sure readers of this newspaper can work out the answer to that particular question.

After all, it’s a “no-brainer”.
