Council tax set to rise - your views online
Council tax 'could rise by up to five per cent every year over the next three years'
Are the people moaning about an increase in council tax the same people complaining about the reduction in bin collections, potholes, etc? Can't they see that the money to pay for our services comes from the council tax?
If it’s to go towards social care I'm all for it but if it's to be put towards the CEC ludicrous cycling without repairing the roads (not just dumping a bit of tarmac at a pothole, only for it to needing done two-three months later) and collecting rubbish they can think again. The council tax is for the benefit of all, not just a niche group!
I thought Brexit was going to resolve all the issues in this country?
So they don’t empty bins as regularly, don’t clean the streets, don’t tend to common areas that are now covered in weeds, drains blocked and not being maintained, people living in houses with mould and damp climbing the walls, roads with potholes, bollards everywhere, trams to nowhere… but we’re going to be paying more for the privilege?
Taxes need to rise. Council tax and NI are about the least pregressive ways to go about this, though.
Sections of the M8 motorway could be shut to commuters during the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow next month
Look on the plus side. if Joe Biden goes on a tour of Edinburgh in the "beast", the Spaces for People bollards will all be destroyed. Silver lining, folks.
That's shocking! We need some new laws to jail people like that. Blocking up our logistics network and damaging our economy without a care. Bloody hooligans are just out to destroy our way of life.
The three biggest leaders in the world choose to stay in Edinburgh rather than Glasgow - says it all really.
Stuff them - COP26 is just a party for freeloaders, and all that yapping will achieve zilch until the likes of China and Russia agree that some action is necessary.
The only person to benefit will be Putin. The numpties will want to stop gas exploration and production in the North Sea and import it from Russia!
I thought they would all have the integrity to be using public transport to help the environment!
A nightmare for Glasgow people.
I suppose Edinburgh smells of paint again.
Whole areas of Moscow are closed when Mr Putin travels to the Kremlin, not a car or comrade within three miles.
Time the M8 in Glasgow was shut permanently.
M8 was shut the other night, after the Genesis concert. Sent via Stirling and Falkirk!
The motorway will be closed anyway once the climate protesters that block the M25 head north for CO26!
Fears of Quality Street Christmas shortage as Nestle admits supply chain issues
I can see a lot of companies using this tactic now to make their sales go up more.

Roses are better anyway.
Considering there’s already mountains of tubs in supermarkets . . .
The worst chocolate in the uk has a shortage – oh no!
Lol, so the box will be even smaller this year.
Every year is the same. “Please don’t buy these and put them in the house”, I say. But come New Year the tub(s) are empty and my expanding belly is full.
The toilet roll was back on the news last night; it was turkeys last week. I see a pattern.
We had noticed your boxes and n umber of sweets have become less over the years – nothing new.
Hahahahaha, fears? I couldn't give a fig to be honest – eat some fruit instead!
