TAKING CARE OF NUMBER ONE

From THE BBC:

The Archbishop of York has said council tax should rise to protect services for "vulnerable" people.

Dr John Sentamu was speaking at the launch of a report by the York Fairness Commission. The commission was established to advise the City of York Council on how to tackle social injustice and poverty.

He said the council must consider unpopular decisions in order to create "a fairer society".

He added: "It will need courage to accept that for some of us life may have to become a little less comfortable in order for it to be more bearable for others."

COMMENT: It is my duty as an honest Englishman to point out to you all that the Archbishop of York does not, because of the terms of his employment, pay council tax. However, I expect that he has waived this perk and is paying York Council the full annual rates on his palace out of his own pocket as anything less would be hypocritical and downright disgusting.
