I agree with bedroom tax if you have more rooms that you don't need and you don't pay your own rent then yes you should pay for your extra rooms people on benefits get so much its about time they payed something back or if they don't wont to pay for the extra rooms then move them out to somewhere that is the write size

you are incorrect people on benefit do not get things you all seem to think we get free stuff we have to pay for it Moore so if you are on disability . i spent nine years in the army, i fort in the fork-lands, worked down the pit, was a government diplomatic protection officer. searched for explosives until i was blown up , tortured in for two weeks in a sensitive country. and every day i have to beg for help. i have to have care every day. but i am still house bound because i cannot get...

I have a familly and was given a familly home 16 months ago, now your telling me its to big for me. were all in it together you say, how many spare rooms do you have.

furious, I already pay more rent because I have a three bedroom and not a two, and I also pay more council tax than neighbours, why? because I have three bedrooms and they have two, how many times am I going to be charged for having three bedrooms. what next a huge baby boom, so there are no spare bedrooms.

this is a stupid rule, I too have 4 children and 7 grandchildren who come over now and again and my room is not big enough for another bed in there, I too am disabled and need my spare room which is like a box to use when I am not sleeping properly with my illness, stop the government claiming for everything they have and stop letting other people in the country and giving our houses away to them , we won the war but you would not think it, most people are living in poverty and they are...

I think that this rule has not been thought through. My grandmother for example has lived in her 3 bed council house for over 35 years. She is in receipt of state pension and receives housing benefit and council relief, she worked up until she was 68 years old, has paid tax and national insurance all her life. She is now 84 years old, the letter came by post saying that her housing benefit would be reduced by £27 per week and this would be payable by her as of 1/4/13. This has worried...

This has worried her and has affected her health, she is afraid she could be rehoused, we as a family will now find the shortfall of monies in order that she can stay in the house she considers her home! To think that people who are in a financial situation where they will be unable to pay for the 'non' use bedroom is scary, how many people will be evicted and homeless by the end of 2014! Has the government thought this through! You cannot expect a society that has relied on assistance with social housing to just magic up money that they clearly do not have, otherwise they would not be in receipt of any benefits in the first place!

If your grandmother is receiving state pension Sian then this bedroom tax will not apply. It is only for working age people on benefits. Ring the housing benefit & inform them or could this have just been a standard letter. All this information you can find on direct gov. com.

Unfortuneatly Sara yours does apply only if you are in council or housing association housing & in receipt of benefits. Not if you have a private landlord. 10% council tax will also apply which I don't think people...

We should protest this hope you have signed the petition.

My son is in the RAF and when he is on leave he stays to look after his disabled Grandmother. In effect this could lead to another burden being placed upon a disabled pensioner, a woman who has made significant contributions to the British economy in her lifetime and a young man serving Queen and country- hardly the proponents of the so-called workshy society the colition governent like to scare Daily Mail reader with...appalling on every level!

its true tht david cammeron isn't to blame for what's going on now,, but at the end of the day he isn't making life easy for any one aswell,, he was ment to b helping this country when he took on his roll as mp,, but instead of helping us he"s running this country in a hell hole,, the rich are getting richer,, and the poor are only gona get poorer,,, let him live on a low income I bet he would soon change his opionin on veiws then,!
