Robert Courts, Witney’s extremely passionate and totally Conservative MP, outdid himself in yesterday’s Commons debate on council taxes. In his desperation to say something – anything – before time was called, he came out with this illogical absurdity.
“Conservative-controlled West Oxfordshire District Council has one of the lowest council tax rates in the country and some of the best services due to its innovative cost-saving measures. Does that not show that Conservative councils save money on back-office costs and provide better services for local residents?”
No, Robert, it does not – as even you must know.
