does the times newspaper read this blog?

t'other day the campaign wrote a little rant about a possible large pay rise for council workers; citing shoddy road works and crap rubbish disposals as reasons to be annoyed over the ever spiralling cost of council tax. today the times newspaper ran with the same story on page one of it's scottish edition. what was on page one of the english edition, anybody? in the times article the cost of private sector contracts was cited as the reason for an expected rise of at least 4% in bills... well, they had to tweak it slightly to hide the fact they ran with a story the campaign had already covered... or maybe it was just by chance... read the times article here.

don't worry, i'm not going to use this as a chance to trumpet the scottish conservative policy of cutting council tax for everyone over the age of 65 by 50%.
