This is not just happening in Norfolk but countrywide, and the disabled will be made to pay to make their figures meet Govt targets
and to protect the elderly.

So the prisons will suddenly get extremely crowded then. I'm not going to pay, can't pay what I haven't got. My council can shove its 25% where the sun don't shine!

I've written to my MP to get his view on whether or not our council is going to charge.

MP has replied saying he is very concerned and is taking this matter up with the government. So we can expect a response of either:
a) the disabled will all be jailed for not being able to pay the tax.
b) total panic by the chancellor when he finds he has to foot the bill.
