The Lib Dems Still Can’t Add Up

Despite it being several months since the Liberal Democrat’s false election claim that £8m of CIL money is unclaimed, it seems they still can’t get a grip of their numbers. The Lib Dems say ‘they can’t know for sure’ in response to a question raised at Council by Conservative Councillor Aphra Brandreth on the issue. What they don't say is why they disagree with officer advice that the £8m claim was a wild exaggeration that had no justification. Let’s hope when it comes to managing your hard earned taxes that they do more than pluck numbers out of the air.
