Will our Councils do what the Coalition wants?

The big decision for Councils and other authorities is whether they will go to the public over Council Tax increases or decide to subvert what the Coalition wants them to do?

In a statement to the House of Commons, Eric Pickles - CLG Secretary of State -, said:
"I also urge town and parish councils to exercise restraint and make sure no council tax payer faces an increased bill."

The idea of HDC of abandoning services so SNTC will hopefully pick them up is a non-goer according to Eric Pickles. He wants all precepting authorities to make a nil increase in Council Tax. Do the Conservatives running HDC and the Liberal Democrats running SNTC agree with what the Coalition wants? If they don't they need to give an explanation as to why!
