Labour Council Hikes Council Tax by 5%, Splashes Thousands Renaming Green Project mdi-fullscreen

It is Guido’s duty to once again report on Enfield Council. Having already banned meat, ruined their own finances by giving themselves a pay rise, and recently unleashed cows strapped with shock collars on a public park, the Labour-led council have now proven their return to fiscal discipline by raising council tax by 5%… and immediately splashing £26,000 on renaming their green travel programme. “Healthy Streets” has now become “Journeys and Places”. None of that money was spent on actually improving transport.

You’d assume graphic designers would know how to do their job already. Apparently not. Renaming a local transport project must be really tough.

The Council website assures visitors “it is still the same programme”, so the only thing that’s changed is the logo…
