Fantastic! Now local councils are driving families into homelessness by their draconian rules on unpaid council tax at the same time that Gordon Brown makes great play of his efforts to persuade banks to be more lenient on mortgage defaulters.
In this report from the Times which says that "Thousands bankrupted over unpaid council tax" the real incompetence of his government is exposed once again. It is said that pensioners and poor families have had to sell their homes to meet huge legal costs arising from bankruptcy orders that dwarf the original debt.
This is happening under the man who says he is guided by a moral compass. This is the man who claims he gets up every day thinking about how he can help people to weather the economic storm. What kind of world does he live in?
