Multi million pound Band H properties in Westminster, London, were charged £1,560 council tax in 20/21.

Here on the Island, our IW Council charged Band H properties more than twice that, £3,343 in 20/21.

I can’t believe the delivery of council services in Westminster costs less than half that of those on the Isle of Wight.

Islanders over recent years have been seen a soft touch by our council.

It is time to free the Island from the current incumbents.

If the clique of councillors who voted for this year's increase are not all sent packing in the May elections, then we can expect more of the same next year, and year on year after that.
