‘You’re being disingenuous’ BBC Rachel Burden skewers Annaliese Dodds on Universal Credit

Burden then moved the interview to talk about council tax rises and whether the government will be giving individual councils an allowance so that they could increase council tax.

Shaking her head, Dodds went on to point out that what the host was saying was incorrect as she explained: “No, I’m afraid it’s not an allowance actually, in the spending review that the Chancellor set out, it was made very clear, albeit in the small print, which wasn’t presented to the press and the public.

“It was made clear in that small print that the government expects local authorities to be raising council tax by five per cent.

“They have set out that expectation, they weren’t just allowing local authorities to do that. They set out that expectation so that local authorities wouldn’t be cut back even further.”
