I've had to move because of this stupid tax. My heart broke when I had to hand over my keys, I had lived in my HOME for 27 years , and did not want to move, but had to because I couldn't afford to stay because of the benefits I am on. I worked all my life only taking time off to have my children, and this is what I have worked for. I don't qualify as a pensioner as the government changed the dates around. I have an illness which forced me to retire early from work, I only have basic benefits and now stand to lose a tenner of that a week to pay this tax, and I’ve just been told that I will also have to pay Council tax as well. Add these costs to the rise in food, gas, and electricity, and I really don’t know how I will cope. No hope for the elderly, or the young ones starting out these days. The fat cats in parliament aren’t worried though. This doesn’t affect them in any way. But Mr C will be fine, He hasn’t got money/housing/employment worries has he... Once again the wealthy stay wealthy and the poorer families are made to pay...

I would like to see the government compile a register of all of the spare rooms that people choose to pay for and, as part of the famous austerity measures, insist that public officials, including MPs, rent them from the tenants instead of staying in hotels or London Houses. This would save the nation £millions. There would be some quick rethinking of policy then.

I agree with the policy there are families living in over crowded council houses as the bigger homes are already lived in by people whose children have grown up and moved out, it is not your property it belongs to the council they maintain it and subsidise the rent everyone has the right to buy at the end of the day.I myself liked my council house enough to buy it when I was only workimg 16hours a week and lived alone with my daughter its not that hard.

PS: Social housing is not owned by the council or goverment, get your facts right......In the United Kingdom, housing associations are private, non-profit making organisations that provide low-cost "social housing" for people in need of a home. Any trading surplus is used to maintain existing housing and to help finance new homes. Although independent they are regulated by the state and commonly receive public funding. They are now the United Kingdom's major providers of new housing for rent, while many also run shared ownership schemes to help those who cannot afford to buy a home outright.

Housing associations provide a wide range of housing, some managing large estates of housing for families, while the smallest may perhaps manage a single scheme of housing for older people. Much of the supported accommodation in the UK is also provided by Housing Associations, with specialist projects for people with mental health or learning disabilities, with substance misuse problems (alcohol or illegal drugs), the formerly homeless, young people, ex-offenders and women fleeing domestic violence.

I agree that single people or couples should not be occupying a 3 or 4 bed `social`house, the problem is that there are not enough 1 bed places for them to move to. This is not a government exercise in fairness, it`s all about them saving money by cutting housing benefit, the government know it`s impossible for most social housing tennents to downsize, they don`t really want them to downsize, the fewer that can, the more money the government saves.
Have you not noticed they aren`t asking single people or couples in social housing who are lucky enough to be employed & earning enough not to be in receipt of housing benefit to give up their large houses to someone who is overcrowded, that wouldn`t bring in any revenue. Neither are they cutting housing benefit for pesioners living in 3 bed or more houses, at least not yet, pensioners are more the Tory`s main voters
People shuffling around to either a smaller or larger propery is not going to shorten the waiting list for social housing, it will not create more houses.
You sound very bitter, maybe getting councelling would be a good idea.

just to clarify this- its 14% duduction in your housing benefit if you have one spare bed room and 25% REDUCTION if you have more than one spare room- so for example , you receive £100 per week now for a three bed property, but only need one bed, u will lose £25. if you need two beds you will lose £14. hence- u can see that those who may be single and unemplyed (lots of older middle aged with grown up families will fall into this category) and you live on £71 JSA, you will bepaying between...

Not much left for food (proces on the increase again) extortionate gas/elec/water prices etc, and god forbis you might still need to run a car (for job interviews, possibilities etc) cameron and his cronies need a wake up call- I can totally see the reasoning behind these ideas, but they have not thought about the consequences of this- homelessness/ increased poverty/increased risk of crime etc - not really going to solve any financial crisis in this country is it?

A property is yours to do what you want with and as you wish only if it is rightfully yours. Council flats are government properties and if it decides that it hasn't got the finance nor the resource to build or refurbish more properties, then it has every right to reclaim empty rooms or ask for money from its tenants wishing to keep the luxury of extra rooms while preventing other families in need of affordable accommodations.
Your selfishness is resulting in overcrowding houses, stress, depression, violence,....... the children are the ones suffering !

We havent even got enough land area to have a train system that fast unless very few stops & that reduces passengers It's a white elephant while ppl in need suffer.
