“Coming to you from the Government on 1st April 2013
Its called the Bedroom tax..
Many years ago it was called the Window tax
some years later came the Poll Tax.
Now its called the Bedroom tax.
Yes, if you are in social accomadation, council, private rented, etc..
then from 1st of April 2013 and live on your own, or are a couple with
a spare bedroom then you will have to pay an extra £14 per extra
bedroom. 2 bedrooms £24 This will apply to anyone no matter how long they have
lived in there property, so if you have a elderly relative who
as lived in her/his council property for many years, and can't
afford the extra may be asked to leave for smaller accomadation,
ie. 1 bedroom accomadation in Scott or Edward wilson house, or private
bedsits... For this the most vunerable will be the ones who will take
the brunt of this stealth tax.............
I remember the poll tax riots some years ago. the government swiftly done
an about turn,, I see trouble ahead.. A stealth tax by the back door is not a good
way for any government to behave...”
