Surrey, eh? David Hodge, the leader of Surrey council, told Conservative colleagues that a “gentleman’s agreement” had been reached with senior cabinet ministers that persuaded him to cancel a threat to raise council tax by 15%.

Local councils need to raise council tax to fund social, largely elderly, care. It is these costs that are increasing rapidly year-on-year, more in speed and amount than any other cost.

It could be time for the UK to debate whose role it is to fund this increasing cost - whether it should be society as a whole or the families of the elderly. Many object to funding elderly care whilst they and their families own assets etc.

Since 2010 there has been a 40% cut in government grants to Local Authorities to pay for adult social care. Plenty of money available for friends of the Tories and their pet projects but not for social care.
