Many do not have the means

I REFER to the letter in last week’s Observer from Cliff Storey from Whelley who stated that Wigan Council ought to take to task 27,000 Wiganers who have not paid their Council Tax (2013-2014).

All very well, but a lot of people simply cannot afford to pay the tax. Cliff says his father never missed a rent payment in 51 years which is admirable, but what if Cliff’s dad did not have the means to do so?

The sooner we elect a Government that will look after all its people, instead of the rich and powerful, only then an we possibly mention democracy.
