  2. Waco

    Just finished watching this 6 part series. Truly shocking events. One of the best dramatisations I've seen so if you can get a hold of it do so. Hard to believe a government would treat its citizens like this even if one of them was a bit loopy.

  5. why is council tax calculated by property value rather than income?

    been wondering about why council tax bands are determined by your property value rather than your income...also, why it's based on what your property was worth in 1991 (i think?) rather than something more up-to-date? seems odd to me, and rather arbitrary. there must be a good reason though?
