Its a joke! I have lived in my house for 10yrs, in that time iv accumulated quite a lot, including a garden shed (big), a greenhouse and 10yrs of garden plants, oh and also 2 cats......if I cant pay the 'bedroom tax', basically they want me out! I don't know of any 'council' 1 bedroom houses with a garden? No, they want to put me in a 1 bedroom flat! And......in the letter the council give you some options.....mmmmmm! 1. get a lodger! 2. if your employed, ask your employer for more hours?...

I wonder if Mr Cameron is going to be paying 'bedroom tax' for any unused bedrooms above No.10? I don't think so! Him and his govenrment want to live in the real world!
Selling off council properties is fine but build more to compensate for it!

I need our extra box room to do my sons immunoglobian therapy and to keep all his medical equipment of which the room is full of. I think it is a awful to think people can just pack up and move on. It my circumstance it just cannot be done. Also all these children will be disrupted with there education which the goverment bang on about how important this is! :(

Cast your mind back to 1990 Mr Cameron.. Your Party brought in a thing called POLL TAX... The people had their say and WE WILL AGAIN.. We are the sleeping Lion that you keep poking and poking with that stick.. That Lion is waking up and its NOT HAPPY.

You are being taxed because you have an empty bedroom in your house? That is crazy!

My crime is that I am a pensioer in a rented property and it has two bedrooms, when my husband was alive, and dying, that extra room was a godsend, but throughout my 4year tenancy, I have been penalised for having a "spare" bedroom. I have applied to the local council for a suitable 1 bed place, to no avail, why, Mr Cameron?

The Reason we don't have enough housing is because we're letting anyone and everyone from overseas come over here to stay... if we closed our boarders and sent back the illegal immigrants we'd have enough houses to go around... That's not a racist or xenophobic view, THAT'S A FACT...

gone are the days where a house is a home...how can you make a home when your in fear of having to move as soon as a room becomes vacant? No matter what your social standing is, everyone deserves to have a home!
