I have always had huge admiration for the leadership and style of Norfolk County Council's Leader Alison King. As well as being massively on top of her brief, very much in touch with local people and a Councillor in my patch, Alison has given the government a right rocket in today's Eastern Daily Press. Alison has prepared a document showing 135 new - and unfunded - responsibilities or diktats sent down by central government to local government. We await Labour's response with glee! There's only one sure way to reduce council tax - government needs to give council's the cash they need to do their job.
