Again the so called bedroom tax is something I agree with in principle. There are huge waiting lists for social housing however under occupancy is not a huge issue.
What a surprise! A Tory supports the bedroom tax. What about all the people in Leeds suffering from the tax because they can't find any "suitable" accommodation. The whole thrust of this government is to reduce the welfare state in order to give tax cuts to the better off. Reducing the deficit is and always has been a smokescreen for this policy. Whatever the faults of the Blair government, and it had many, dishing out the proceeds of growth exclusively to the better off in the form of tax cuts was not one of them.
