The gamble then is an extra increase in Government grant whatever happens and you have not denied that there are going to be Council Tax increases if you get back, so that is fine. What if the Government in general election year " the year after the election for mayor " cannot cough up this extra money because of commitments it may have in other parts of the world, let us say for instance, and therefore you do not get this grant?
Does that mean we are going to get the cuts that already seem to be going ahead or does that mean there is going to be massive increases or does that mean there is going to be increases, for example, in the Congestion Charge tax? How are you going to get it to balance? At the moment, what you are offering to Londoners is massive continual increases in Council Tax and limited increases, it seems to me, in terms of that, even if you get half as much again of increased Government grant, which you cannot guarantee either.
