The Tax Man Cometh

More than 8m households face council tax hike for having a nice view or off-street parking

More than eight million homes are facing council tax increases because they enjoy nice views or for having off-street parking, claim the Tories.

Ministers have admitted they are building a database covering all 23million homes in England, and Conservatives say this means that residents of good neighbourhoods could be hit by huge council tax hikes.

Now it makes sense that The Beatles wrote ‘Taxman’, they’re from England. They wrote:

If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

They probably should add

If you can see, I’ll tax your view,
And a higher tax if you park off street

I know it doesn’t rhyme – that’s why I’m not a lyricist.
