Just listening to Boris big up his freeze on the Mayoral precept and thought I would stop for a minute and work out how much I'm going to save.
Well for 2008-9 the precept rose by an absolutely scandalous two per cent. Here's how that hits me each and every week:
To be honest, that didn't sound like much at first, but when I rolled it out, I found that I would have saved almost six whole pounds a year.
Now with that kind of money I could have paid for a whole extra day's travelcard every 12 months. Oh wait.
