Collect that tax

Isn't it interesting have many column inches have been taken up by John Redwood's as yet unpublished report which may talk about cutting the burden to UK business. What strikes me as interesting is that there hasn't been half as much written about the fact that councils seem to be getting even worse at collecting the taxes already levied on us. 

Surely this proves the that if around £750 million goes uncollected then if local councils got their act together and raised their collection rates their is scope to reduce the council tax burden without reducing services!
