Why aren’t I surprised that Whitby residents pay more Council Tax than Scarborough residents?
Pretty obvious really.
Another case of Scarborough Borough Council ripping off Whitby yet supplying little or no services whilst Whitby’s treasured buildings and tourist attractions are being allowed to fall down.
It’s a good job that Whitby Abbey isn’t administered by the SBC or it would have disappeared long ago.
Until this iniquitous council is removed from its pernicious hold over Whitby then I fear that my beloved old home town will soon be deleted from the map to be replaced by Greater(?) Scarborough.
