The Great Reset in Covid-19 & NWO Posted April 24 3 hours ago, Grumpy Owl said: The £150 is a one-off 'rebate'; it is not a reduction of your council tax bill, it is paid direct to you. If you pay your council tax via direct debit (as I do) then the money will be paid straight into your bank account. If you pay your council tax manually, then you'll be contacted by the council to provide bank details. If you don't pay council tax, or don't have a bank account, then of course you don't get your 'rebate'. This one is laughable really, you get a one-off £200 credit on your energy account, but it is just a 'loan' which has to be paid back... in the form of increased monthly payments. So it is utterly pointless and doesn't really benefit anybody. And there's no way of 'opting-out' either. I'm not in any financial hardship, I earn a decent salary and live fairly modestly. My energy bills are affordable, I don't really need this £200 'loan'. I don't really need the council tax rebate either. Yeah I was comparing the £150 one off payment is basically what most people pay on council tax each month. But that £200 loan.. is that the first time a debt has been forced upon people without any opt out option? its crazy.
