Interestingly, a Surrey resident, Mr Gerald Harvard has come up with a very businesslike PETITION which should send a frisson of fear through all overpaid officers.
David Hodge, the hapless leader of Surrey is now begging government to let him have the business rates to squander.
Why is this of interest to K&C residents? Because our council may try the same ploy.
Imagine Cllr Lightweight having control over the hundreds of millions of business rates squeezed from hard-pressed residents.
It would be like giving driving licences to five year olds......
