Whose council tax are you happy to pay?

Would you be willing to contribute to another person's council tax in the form of benefits if the household they lived in was of working age?

This is the question that has been posed in my local borough of Haringey in North London.

The council has changed the way it distributes council tax benefit means that every household of working age in Haringey will now have to pay something towards their bill. In a bid to cut council tax funds 'as fairly as possible' people who receive 100% council tax benefit will now have to pay 20% of their full council tax bill.
