My family lost our land because of the Council. Then we lost our caravans to vandals. We were housed in a bungalow with stairs for disabled use because of the Council. Now, my parents are dead, I am living on £70 a week, and the authorities are looking to reduce this to maybe as little as £45 a week by clawing back for the empty room. I have no hot water and no heating. What am I am supposed to turn off to pay for this? It's all very well supporting the rich and killing off the poor,...

Wow this is ridiculous! I wish I could sign the petition as an American Citizen living in the United states I unfortunately can not. Listen to your people Mr. Cameron. You don't have to look too far into history to see that unfair taxes on the people is a poor choice. How do you want history to remember you Mr. Cameron? The world is watching. Make the right choice.

It's amazing how I was classed as overcrowded for years but now they want me to move into a smaller place. Okay I will, I ring up the council and request that I be moved to a two bedroom property because I have my son still living with me and they said no. Why? because of my age they will only give me a one bedroom, I'm 50.

I was told last week, that my mum (aged 70) who lives on her own in a 3 bedroomed house will not get charged if she gets Pension Credit Guaranteed. She has lived in the same house for 46 years and was so upset thinking they would force her to move out or pay the extra money. The Government is selfish, they are all earning so much money it's not going to affect any of them.
