I knew it You knew it and the people faced with ‘Bedroom Tax’ knew it!!!!!!
The BEDROOM TAX was not about freeing up houses at all. It was simply about saving money!!!!
Never mind all those poor souls that have moved and now regret doing such!!
Please take time to watch, and listen very carefully to PMQs on Weds 14th May. (27mins 30secs in)
Cameron was asked by Jonathon Reynolds MP
“As the Prime Minister has acknowledged, the number of people who are in work but who have to claim housing benefit to make ends meet is growing, but the cost of that will be an extra £5 billion over the course of this Parliament. Does the Prime Minister consider that a sign of success?”
To which Cameron replied: “……. in order to make savings housing benefit should not be paid in respect of spare rooms that people are not using….” the key wordsthere being IN ORDER TO MAKE SAVINGS.
For the last 18 months Cameron, McVey, IDS and co have been banging on about how their beloved ‘spare room subsidy’ will free up homes for Families. They insist on repeating that line.
I for one believe that no one should ever be put in a position of being made to leave their HOME. However, as I only said to my own MP last week, ” …….if the Bedroom Tax were about freeing up homes for families, then they would have included Pensioners…” to which I was met with silence. No answer!!
Keep talking Mr Cameron and slowly but surely you will drop right in to that big hole come General Election 2015.
We the People are watching, and listening. We are WAKING UP!!!
