Sir, Massie’s been copying again, sir

Alex Massie in the Spectator today:

[T]here’s at least one terrible promise here that contradicts the Tories’ interesting, promising, commitment to localism and decentralisation. That’s the commitment to freeze council tax……How serious can the Tories be about decentralisation when they seem to want to make local government more not less dependent upon central government? Where’s the accountability and transparency in that? Nowhere, that’s where.

Paul Cotterill in Though Cowards Flinch, the day before yesterday:

No wonder Conservative Central Office, in a move not entirely compatible with the supposed spirit of localism, has already instructed from on high council tax freezes not for one but for two years, irrespective of local conditions, local needs, local people, local jobs. 

Localism, my arse.

Very suspicious. 

His loathsome mate Liddle’s already been caught copying TCF’s work, but I really thought better of Alex.  Very naughty boy.

    There’s a proper “man crush” in progress here Paul. And its quite sweet to watch.

    @leftoutside – lol. I didn’t think of it like that.

    That point’s been made for ages — after all, it was announced by the Tories well over two years ago.
