'Drop council tax' pledge made

The, increasingly attractive looking, Lib-Dems are commited toDropping council tax, in favour of a local income tax. This is good as the massive recent increases in tax have lead to the first fall in household incomes in 15 years despite the robust performance of the economy. But will they get to the real nub of the problem and try to get councils to do less, and do what they do more efficiently? Probably not, there appears to be no current party willing to offer that the classical Liberal approach.
