Become Muslim,& claim the empty room is a prayer room,that way you pay no bedroom tax.
Yet another way of alienating our own nationals & favouring others.

just a cheap way to get money for nothing, but this law does not apply to the rich why are they not living in Britain aswell.

Rather than allowing all the imagrants, paying for them, all their religion,mosks,housing them & families & kicking us on the street or making us suffer! Where's the justice to giving out money to drug users & alcholics??? Who seem to have it better than the working class citizens!! You need a new goverment ! Its a down right cheek

where are basic rights, by what mandate is such an idiotic tax thought up, why not regulate and tax the air you breathe?

I think it is truly disgusting. It penalises the poorest and least able to cope with stress in our society. What will they think of next! Shame on them.

Privatisation really does not work, only look at the evidence in our dirty hospitals, which are not cleaned adequately, so that private companies can give a premium to their shareholders. Before we know it, we shall be experiencing life as our grandparents knew it, without a welfare state, or a health service that is free. What price the two world wars that our parents and grandparents fought in. Grrrrrr!
