The amount of council tax spent on refuse and recycling per household is pence per week but, because it's every household in the borough, those pence add up. The really big ticket items are education and social services. If people only had fewer children.

I've often found that the loose fruit and veg in supermarkets is more expensive than the prepacked.
One I remember was baking potatoes. I needed four. The pack of four was something like 67p a kilo, but they were quite small, so I decided to get the loose ones as they were a decent size, until I noticed that they were over £1 a kilo.

Come on GQ - the truth is allot more pertinent than that don't you think ? A substantial sum goes on salaries and the biggest kick up for council tax payers is that 40% goes towards pensions!
Three years Northumberland CC got rid of their CEO he had a super golden goodbye handshake of £170,000.00 plus a super topped up pension pot! Only this summer the very architect of the previous CEO's departure then takes over the realms of CEO, again on a super inflation busting £189,000.00 salary with perks! Yes, we are hopping mad about it, but the waste of resources across councils throughout the country is disgusting! The biggest area is the pensions that the council tax payers are rightfully resentful about paying towards! There needs to be a re-think on how it is dealt with!
