The Tories are calling for a centrally-imposed freeze in council tax, as part of their commitment to localism.
I thought I might refer to their previous announcement on the subject of localism, and found that the page had been removed.
Luckily google cache comes to the rescue
All fine-sounding stuff of the type tories say when they are behind in the polls.

It is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on 21 Sep 2008 05:51:27 GMT.
That's 8 days ago. This page seems to have been "lost" suspiciously close to the date of the announcement of this new policy.
The old Dave said:
So I hope that in 2008 the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party will join us in putting pressure on the Government to decentralise power, and that together we can create a new progressive alliance to decentralise British politics.
And the Conservatives, Dave, don't forget the Conservatives.
