Council Tax - It's Great!!

Having paid Council Tax for 10 months isn't it great to have 2 months off!!!

Yes, every year this Tax increases and its by 4.95% in Torbay from next month, but it is a relief to be able to buy some extra necessities in February and March.

By extras I'm not talking about telephone and TV packages or even takeaway meals, as surely these are part of my human rights and I'm entitled to these all year, but what about trips to Center Parcs, tattoos, piercings, fish lip fillers, long puffer coats, Dr Martens etc.? Oh, wait a minute, those are human rights too. Just like having kids when you can't afford to feed them or be bothered to socialise them into society! It's OK. It's the Government fault. They're responsible not me. That's what I hear all the time.

Be responsible for your own circumstances where possible. Get off you backside and don't freeload.

Of course, there are always exceptions and some people, through no fault of their own, still require assistance. This is the loophole in our conscience that is exploited.

So what did I do with two months Council Tax money? I tried not to spend it because I know bigger bills are on the way. That's being responsible.
