Ulster frozen out of UK rates deal

Ratepayers here continue to bury their heads in the sand and hope for the best, while Sammy Wilson and his colleagues will deliver the usual post-Christmas nightmare with yet another hefty rise.

Ratepayers: wake up and lobby your MLAs and councillors for fair play.

If zero increases can work in the rest of the UK, why not here?
