An Alternative Budget

Both main parties have left an intellectual vacuum, this alternative budget attempts to fill it.

  1. Stop any rise in council tax and provide additional council tax relief to those earning under 30k a year.
  2. Reverse austerity-forced cuts on locally run public services from the last five years.
  3. A new annual funding set-up, providing local authorities what they need and getting the money out the door in emergencies like this to avoid any more local austerity.
