Bedroom Tax is bullying by government
2:27pm Tuesday 18th September 2012 in Letters
I AM very concerned about the new so-called Bedroom Tax.
How can this tax possibly work?
It’s just another bullying scheme by the Government.
A couple in a three-bedroom house with a girl and boy, aged nine and ten, who have their own bedroom will now have to share a room and the tenants have to pay £40 a month extra rent for a spare room.
There is no logic in it. Tenants are being evicted for rent arrears. Now there will be more tenants getting into arrears.
Are they going to get evicted?
If so, where are they going to live?
Tenants are trying to move to smaller houses.
There are none, so they are stuck in a Catch 22 situation.
What about grandparents who have their grandchildren staying over in school holidays?
They will not be able to because there is no bedroom for them.
Surely Prime Minister David Cameron should go back to the drawing board to stop this ludicrous scheme.
