The difference is actually pretty clear: on average, it's almost £100 less for a Band D home in Conservative-run areas.

What local Conservatives are delivering for residents

Let's take Bracknell Forest, for example, where the local team made savings of £11.6 million – without cutting a single service.

You can look at others where services have been better while taxes are kept low.

In Yorkshire's East Riding council, our local Conservative team is investing £16 million in flood defences.

In Cheshire East, our local team has pledged an extra £7 million for recycling this year.

And in St Albans, our the local team are saving residents £400,000 a year by having one of the best recycling rates in the country.
