To be fair to him, he's not exactly an advocate of the workplace parking tax, and he was forced to include it by the Greens to get his budget through. Expecting him to justify it is like expecting PMTM to justify giving £1b to the DUP - it's part of political reality, not policy.I see the failed student, Deek the Geek, was in front of the Finance Committee today trying to justify the workplace parking tax.
When asked if he had carried out an economic modelling and impact assessment............ er no.
He said the power is already up and running in "Tory-run England" ................ How did a power introduced by a Labour Government in 2009 and adopted by only one council (Labour run Nottingham Council) become an "English Toarrie Tax"?
It looks as if there will be a lot of exceptions - public services - so private sector will be hammered again
