With prices rising faster than wages, working people are now £1,600 a year worse off than they were in 2010. So Lewisham's Labour Council Tax freeze will go some way to helping hard-pressed families cope with the cost of living. Only Labour is with you in these tough times. As well as freezing your Council Tax, Labour has promised to freeze energy bills until 2017 when Ed Miliband is elected.
Labour's local action team - Roy Kennedy, Chris Barnham and Cllr Pauline Morrison - talking to shoppers in the local supermarket along the Brockley Road, said: 'Many local people are pleased, that despite national government funding cuts, we are able to freeze the Council Tax again - helping everyone but especially those who are finding it tough to make ends meet.'
