    "MSE question: The current council tax banding system has been in place since 1991 in England and Scotland. It's time for a fair update so that 400,000 homes are no longer in the wrong band. How will you address this?
    Plus, many people still pay water rates based on a valuation of their homes done in 1989 yet they can't appeal it. Will you change that?"

    I'm a bit surprised he answered this question at all, considering the disrespect for his country shown in the opening sentence.

    So why did you ask "It's time for a fair update ... How will you address this?"
