The Truth of this Tax is there are not enough ONE BEDROOM Properties to make this Equitable! This will Cause Fractured Communities, Alcoholism, and a whole Raft of Social Problems that will cost MORE than this will bring in? So Much for Camerons "BIG Society" http://bbc.in/10AvFtT.
Keep the poor, poorer and make the richer that is there moto, taxes taxes & more taxes, they will be taxing the air we breath soon, they don't live in the real world and never have I think, they are all in cloud cukoo land.
I don't agree with what is happening and hopefully they don't make you move at all(my mum is in this situation?) but why should 1 person be living in a 3bedroom house all by theirself. when there are families that need a 3bedroom house and are cramped in a 2 bedroom house?
I agree Lisa xx
i agree lisa , i live next doot to 2 old women who never have any1 visit let alone stay over , yet there houses are huge xxx
I think it depends on the situation and the person , my sisters in a three on her own but one room used for grandchildren staying , I need a bigger three or four but it was my choice to have five children knowing I had no room i don't think anyone should be forced to pay or leave there homes for the likes of my needs , if its an elderly lady who maybe can't get upstairs then a bungalow should be offered , its horrible to think about all the stress its causeing x
I have two Daughters one in Norway Ingrid 9 and one in Liverpool Emmaline 3. I have a two bedroom flat and Emmaline stays twice a week, Ingrid stays when she comes over and we are a complete family. But because they dont live with me full time, i am up shit creek. Do they expect us to all stay in one room. This will not matter to the rich and will cause problems for a very lot of people.
all this gov has done since bein in office is find ways 2 rob the poor and make the rich rither
ITS ONE OF THE DUMBEST THINGS I HAVE EVER HEARD.. WHAT A RETARDED GOVERNMENT - HOW MANY BEDROOMS HAVE THE QUEEN GOT SPARE. WAKE UP YOU WANKA.
THEY WILL RAID YOUR HOME TO SEE IF YOU GOT A SPARE BEDROOM.. DO HOTELS GET TAXED IF THEY GOT SPARE ROOMS UNUSED.. DOES CAMERON HAVE SPARE ROOMS IN HIS HOME.. I DARE SAY HE DOES AND HIS CHILDREN CAUSE HES IS GETTING ON IN AGE. HE IS SO SO DAFT TO EVEN CONSIDER THIS KIND OF CRAP.. GALD I AINT LOYAL TO ENGLAND.. THEY SENT MY ANCESTORS TO PARADISE.. WHILE THEY THOUGHT IT WAS A BETTER IDEA TO STAY IN THE COLD FREEZING WET RAT INFESTED HOLE
cant even believe that is real.. haha , when i see it again on my wall i have to wonder. if the people actually let the government get away with this. they are just as retarded
I mean, if there is mass non-cooperation, the government cannot do anything!
It has been suggested that following the General Election you accepted a bribe from David Cameron to gain a semblance of political power. The claim is that the historical differences between the Conservatives and Liberals would make it utterly impossible for any accord between the two parties. The claim goes on to elaborate on these differences, going back to the Parliaments of Charles II, when the parliamentary parties began to polarise into the Whigs and Tories. I would have to agree on...
It has been suggested that following the General Election you accepted a bribe from David Cameron to gain a semblance of political power. The claim is that the historical differences between the Conservatives and Liberals would make it utterly impossible for any accord between the two parties. The claim goes on to elaborate on these differences, going back to the Parliaments of Charles II, when the parliamentary parties began to polarise into the Whigs and Tories. I would have to agree on the historical aspects and ask; did you, indeed, accept a bribe from David Cameron? It is suggested that the most blatant act of political corruption took place following the General Election. For my own part, your deal with David Cameron has demonstrated that my vote for the Liberal Democrats was, in fact, a vote for the Conservatives. I believe that you have betrayed a once great political party and shown yourself to be a venal political opportunist.
Although I do not expect a reply, I would advise you that a failure to reply will be taken as an admission of the above claims and will be published. On the other hand, in fairness, any reply which explains your reasoning for joining forces with the Conservatives will be reported upon as well.
Sent to Nick Clegg via his website on 9th February 2013.
I have not received a reply yet. I have applied for an e-petition asking for a parliamentary enquiry into the conduct of the LidDem/Cons at the conclusion of the last Gleneral Election. I have addressed this application to the Leader of the House of Commons. If he refuses to permit the petition, I will allege a conflict of interest upon his part. I will keep everybody posted. This House of Commons is an unelected assembly and the formation of this coalition was nothing less than a coup d’état.
Well said Nick MacDonald, we were Conned by the LibDems, I voted for them because I had no faith in GB and New Labour and would never want another Tory government after Mrs T. Had a Local LibDem around with his leaflets today, after reading I noted several misleading statements about his successes locally, screwed it up and put it in the bin. I can't wait for them to come tapping on my door in 2 years time. I just hope we still have a society left by that time!!!
I, too, voted LibDem because I thought that we needed a change from the two old, tired and discredited parties. But I feel that my vote was stolen. I voted LibDem as a vote AGAINST Labour and the Conservatives. The political carve up carried out by Cameron and Clegg was an abuse of the electorate and the parliamentary process.
I voted the cons (yes they are all a bunch on con artists) and would never have voted libdems so disappointed having said that it has shown the country what I was beginning to believe so hopefully we have all wised up and won't vote for any of the three main parties ... so may be a win all round :) jx
All they are wanting to do is open up council housing to give to immigration.Never mind how long you have lived there, that your friends live around you,(some of these people are elderly and they need their friend around them, weather you have grandchildren staying with you at weekends.Or single fathers having their children staying them when possible.(TRAITORS).
It's got nothing to do with immgrants...It's about an out of touch govrment taking money from the least well off instead of goimg after the tax dodgers both individuals and companies!!
Friends keep inviting me to sign this and to ask others to sign it. That would be fine if I could only find out exactly what's being proposed. Perhaps I missed a headline somewhere. Googling for info on it has so far not enlightened me. If anyone can send me a link to such info I'd be very grateful. Once I understand the apparent injustice of it I'll certainly add my penny-worth of protest and encourage others to join.
this seems to be the offical paper
if the petition reaches 100,000 signatures it forces the government to debate it in parliament,when any petition can get this figure it must be debated in parliament
This petition is too late, this ruling has already been agreed and implementations in place. it starts in less than 2 mths and computer systems have already been programmed
I think this is the most stupid thing ive ever heard of what about the eldery people its hard enough for them to keep there heat going.. I know of single men that have a council house two bedrooms and they live alone and there wifes have a council house also and they both get benifits. This is pure STUPID just like the GOVERMENT they can sit on there fat ass and get paid good money and all they can think of is hurting good familys GET A GRIP GOVERMENT LOOK ELSE WHERE.
Surely if an older couple move to a smaller house their heating bill will go down?
what when gas & electric bills are rising as they are, get real!
It takes money to move from house to house, which am sure, is why some people are still in a home that has spare rooms.
Although we have a 2 bedroom house, my husband who has a chronic illness which leads to sleeplessness has to sleep in the 2nd room 9 nights out of 10 to enable both or us to get a decent nights sleeep, but, this tax ignores the needs of those in our situation and says that as a married couple we only need one bedroom - I beg to differ. £10 per week now needs to be found from our meagre Employment and Support Allowance to pay for us to be able to remain in our home. Together with the...

Together with the cuts/none increase in working age benefits it hits the vulnerable and sick as do so many of the current governments policies.
Claim a DHP from your local council
a bit thik lol but what is a dhp?
Lorna, I didn't know either but it is a Discretionary Housing Payment. Only a time limited payment that can sometimes help if there is a difference in rent owed and housing benefit paid. I am not sure it will apply in the instance of the benefit changes which come in once the bedroom tax arrives.
