Audrey Findlay, Fib Dem leader of Aberdeenshire Council said of recent 4.5% council tax rises:
"Pay rises in the Aberdeenshire area have averaged 4.75% per annum over the past three years. Thus, council tax increases of 5% per annum have been broadly in line with average earnings."
No mention of the need for the council tax to be abolished. But then, we now know that the Fib Dems don't see this as a priority anymore.
Audrey couldn't understand what all the fuss was about, it's not like her party promised to abolish council tax or anything.
