Mates' rates

Just when you think the Tories can't possibly get any more despicable and machiavellian. Their latest jaw-droppingly shameless act is to award millions of pounds to councils in the affluent south-east while giving absolutely nothing to the five most deprived councils in the country. Anyone would think they were trying to mollify party colleagues in local government...

On a related note, it's worth pointing out that the news that David Cameron's mum has signed an anti-cuts petition hardly suggests that she's at loggerheads with her own son - after all, in an astonishing move Cameron himself complained to the Tory-run Oxfordshire County Council on a similar note back in September.
