Stupid question 10:49 - May 22 with 1710 viewsOle_Pablo_Ole

I am young and haven't voted before or registered to vote. Is there any way I can register today and vote? Or is it too late?

I assumed that everyone on the council tax list would automatically receive a voting card. I could be wrong.

Too late.

You or your parents may have committed an offence by not recording you correctly on the Electoral Register.

I have paid council tax before but apparently that does not automatically register you according to the official voting site.

Council tax is no longer a poll tax.

Registration for voting takes place @ 3 months before an election

Surely its the electoral register, which is different.

Mores the pity.

We get letters from the council with the names of the inhabitants listed and are asked to change any details that aren't correct - I assumed the man knew where everyone lived and their DOBs

It's entirely right that you should pay for local services based on the value of your home. And in time your home should be used for pay for your care in your later years.

And the conservatives are making it more complicated by making everyone register individually.

That'll increase turnout. Oh yes.

Why should anybody but you pay for any old-age care you need?

It should be paid for by The Man - although as an individual I believe that families should look after their own unless they need specialist or palliative care. And what has the size of someones house got to do with tax for public services?

That's ok by all accounts. If you have done feck all all your life and or squandered away your money on cr4p then the state will pick up the tab. If however you have worked like a trojan and put away something for a rainy day or for your kids and grandkids then you can royally feck off.

So needy residential or nursing care isn't a rainy day then?

No. A rainy day is finding out you have subsidence. It is grossly unfair to financially punish people for their good sense.

I suspect - by and large - you and I are in agreement.

We've agreed as a society that we don't ask people who are ill to pay for their own treatment. We all chip in and anyone who is unfortunate enough to require medical treatment gets it paid for out of that fund.

We could easily do the same thing with old-age nursing care (for want of a better word). The issue though is how to fund this - and one idea is for the state to take the first £x,000 of any inheritance to fund this [Edit: only from the sale of the family house, cash would not be liable for such a charge]. Some people will lose out because they wouldn't need any (or much) nursing care, and others will gain because they require a lot, but only are charged £x,000. Posthumously.

This was an idea that the Labour government were talking about with the Tories at the tail end of Brown's time in office and the Tories were making warm noises about offering cross-party support right up until the time they put billboards up warning of "death taxes".

I support these proposals FWIW.

From memory x was about 50, but I might be wrong.

An 'oh no it isn't' for your first point too. The value of your home has no direct relationship with the value of local services that you consume.

And just as importantly the value of your home has no direct relationship with your ability to pay a local tax.
