I downsized from a 3 bed family house to a 2 bed flat 6 years ago both my husband and myself are not in the best of health and this is worrying us sick, where is the extra money supposed to come from we are on the breadline as it is, and why should I be forced out of my home to live in a one bed box, because that's what they are, this governments policies really stink, it was not the general public that put this country in debt so why are we being made to suffer for this and past governments mess.

GET THIS IDIOT GOVERNMENT OUT............................. NOW! We need to stop the rot the dopey millionaire CAMERON & HIS PUPPET are doing to this country! I'm sick of hearing "The mess we inherited from the previous government" & WE'RE ALL IN IT TOGETHER..........WHAT! Will he be working when he is 70+ in a HARD job...... or sitting on his arse in the house of lords on a big wage and PENSION..............I GUESS NOT! Change the bloody record and start blaming YOURSELVES! They will be...

GET THIS IDIOT GOVERNMENT OUT............................. NOW! We need to stop the rot the dopey millionaire CAMERON & HIS PUPPET are doing to this country!

Will he be working when he is 70+ in a HARD job...... or sitting on his arse in the house of lords on a big wage and PENSION..............I GUESS NOT! Change the bloody record and start blaming YOURSELVES! They will be bringing the WINDOW TAX back again at this rate. They keep on & on aiming cuts / tax etc; at the LEAST well off. WHY don't they glamp down on FOOTBALLERS who are ENTITLED to have their money in off shore accounts to AVOID PAYING TAX! No doubt Cameron and his cronies do EXACTLY THE SAME! They want to start increasing house building NOW to help people NOW and in the future. BUT, try building them near HIS HOME! They build what little is being built in already crowded areas. Plus, if they clamped down on all the imigration of people who don't have ANY money or skills to bring to this country and then DRAIN it by being given money / homes (that are needed for our own people) the better we would be. I have nothing personal against imigrants BUT.....I totally disagree with how we are swamped to overcapacity! going to be inundated with imigrants from Bulgaria etc; If they have money and skills OK, but not to sponge off the UK............. again! GIVE US A BREAK! GET THE IDIOTS OUT...........NOW!

If your Mum is receiving her state pension then this will not apply to her.

I'm a carer and I'm now going to be forced out of my home after 20yrs which will cost the housing more money if I have to rent private, It really doesn't make any sence to me. Why should I give up my family home for some Immigrant to live in?

IT SEEMS THAT THIS GOVERNMNT ARE VICTIMISING THE DISABLED AND POOR ALONGSIDE THE UNEMPLOYED. THERE ARE FEW JOBS OUT THERE, THIS LYING GOVERNMENT ARE USING NAZI TACTICS TO AVERT BLAME FOR THEIR POOR POLICIES AND THEIR INADEQUATE ASSESMENT OF THE COUNTRIES PROBLEMS, THEY ARE HOPING BY THIS RAFT OF MONEY MAKING SCHEMES THAT THEY CAN SOMEHOW GET OUT OF THE PROBLEM. OF COURSE THE FACT THAT SOME 350,00 IMMIGRANTS ARE WAITING AT THE BULGARIAN BORDER HAVE SOME BEARING ON WHY THEY WANT TO FREE...

what will they come up with next, they sold off a lot of council houses, I must admit I like a lot of people took advantage of it, and we bought our council house, but I did think they would build new houses with what they got for the old ones, but no they didn't, and now look, not enough council houses, and the young ones now trying to get council houses just can't get them, and they can't afford to get mortgages, so where does that leave them?, there are a lot of private landlords that...

Give us a chance to at least blame our OWN Government, not one imposed upon us.... Vote YES to Independence then we only have ourselves to blame for any crap that comes our way... regardless of political colour, at least we will decide democratically on our future .....

Before we know it there will be a tax on windows.. that was madness and this is just insane, it doesn't matter who's in power the out come is always the same. If any goverment were to use the taxes for the right thing in the first place just maybe we would not be in a mess in the first place. I have no problem with sending aid out of the country but when is is going to be time to look after your own country men first and then do what we can for others. Wheb you consider that we now have food...

Wheb you consider that we now have food banks in this country because families need help well it's just disgraceful. Baring in mind that anyone can become Primeminister the one thing you don't sit an exam for! in fact none of the MP's have to pass anything I am aware of to become an MP, just that bit on it's own makes a farce of the whole thing. Family is important but all the talk about it from the powers that be, it comes to nothing in the end.
