Government lies exposed as data confirms effects of the "Bedroom tax".

‘Big lie’ behind the bedroom tax as families trapped with nowhere to move so cannot avoid new penalty for having spare room





96% of benefit claimants who will be penalised cannot be rehoused


 

This effects of this piece of IDS dogma, were  predicted and broadcast long before the iniquitous policy was forced through the Commons.






The Conservatives/LibDems will not change the law, or take any measures to alleviate the problem, (such as building social housing,) and the Labour (New Tory) Party will not repeal it, in the event that they form the next government. Nor, incidentally, will they build social housing either. 
It seems that this odious policy and its evil consequences, together with those responsible for introducing it and those responsible for perpetuating it, will remain with us for the foreseeable future.
