It could be worse...

However much we might moan about the various failings of the Conservative-Independent cabinet on Cornwall Council, things could be worse. We could be in Torridge or Mid-Devon where the Conservative councils have sent out thousands of bills demanding a council tax increase of up to 17%. The bills are, of course, wrong and are having to be replaced.

Mid Devon has had enough bad publicity in the last week with their decision to abolish the rules of grammar and delete apostrophes from their road signs.

But now the council has sent out thousands of incorrect council tax bills and will have to go through the process again, leading to confusion and costing around £12,000.

According to the Western Morning News:
Conservative cabinet member for finance Neal Davey said the error was made by an officer and was "regrettable".

In Torridge, only 803 bills out of 30,553 sent out were right - a strike rate of just 2.6%. There too, the bills will have to be replaced at a cost of thousands of pounds.
