WELL done Southampton council for putting my council tax way up over the rate of inflation, but I’m not at all surprised as Labour councils have always put tax up as much as they can get away with.

I would not mind too much if they’d any done good with it but Labour wastes money when in power.

How also can the police get away with putting their part up seven per cent when they do nothing now but cut back?

Roll on May, let’s get the Tories back in who at least try to keep rises down.

Would it not be a good idea to join up with a nearby council to work together to reduce costs? Then maybe council tax could go down
