Your taxes at work

Thanks to Andrew Duffin for this one:
When judges from the Beautiful Scotland in Bloom competition stroll among the hanging baskets, flower beds and mirror-flat lawns of Coldstream next week, they will have little idea that they have stepped into the middle of a blazing row.

Residents of Coldstream are furious that their chances of winning are hindered because they miss out on council-subsidised hanging baskets

As Andrew says:

THIS is what we pay 40% income tax for? (Sorry, 51% including National "Insurance")
