Join Wirral fight against 'bedroom tax'

First published in Letters

SOME 660,000 people will have to pay 'bedroom tax' and as well as the total despair people are feeling over this "pay up or be forced out of your home" policy, that’s also 660,000 not putting their money into their local economy.

For some, as much as £100 per month will not be spent at a time when shops are closing at alarming rates across the country and the economy flounders.

Our so-called Government passed it through the Commons as quietly as they could - great move for local economy and great move for humanity.

I call upon everyone affected by this tax. Unite, sign the Facebook petition. Make your voice heard.

S Davis, Bebington.

don't look back in anger says...

Cameron was asked about it at PM'Q today. He was asked why a serving soldier returning from Afghanistan won't have a room at his mothers house because she can't afford this tax for his spare bedroom and so will have to downsize and leaving her son with knowhere to go. As per usual he skipped the question with a non answer. It's a barbaric tax and needs stopping.

Yet more evidence that this black-hearted government hates the poor, and will do anything to crush the life out of them.

Compared to the Bullingdon Bullies, Thatcher was a true socialist.

Bickyboy right on the money!

The current Toffocracy at Number 10 is running rampant, leveraging the financial crash as an alibi to demolish the welfare state and outsource what's left of public services to its buddies at G4S and SERCO.

Cloaked by its coalition cowards and mirrored by Labours gutless, clueless, chinless salon socialist life-stylers bereft of any vision or values; the march of the Toffs continues unabated

Wonder whether under-occupying Cabinet Ministers in receipt of second homes allowances (a form of state subsidised housing) be expected to take in lodgers?
