    So with this cut to business rates, who exactly is going to make up the shortfall to local councils? They've felt the brunt of austerity so far because the Tories were able to sneak by reforms, and local councils would be blamed for the loss in services rather than central government. Councils are already woefully underfunded. This is a despicable, non-sensical measure, and if he seeks to continue making cuts to councils' sources of income, central government will need to start picking up their bills.

    Another terrible idea. Petrol tax allows for economic efficiency by internalising social costs.

    This is just mindless populism so far.

    Business rates are being devolved and councils are now free to raise council tax. I guess he's expecting them to slap it on the rich homes and big firms.

    I very much support abolition of the petroleum revenue tax and it's apparently only applied on old fields anyway.

    While local councils are separately elected, it doesn't work like that. They will inevitably be set on ideological grounds.

    He is pushing the responsibility for necessary tax rises onto someone else for cynical, political reasons.
