Bedroom Tax

A good article in the Guardian by Poly Toynbee about the bedroom tax.

The more you find out about the bedroom tax, the more it comes across as an expensive, arbitrary assault on the poorest in society for no more reason than the Tories being their old vindictive selves.

I’m not sure if the right has always hated the poor for just being poor, or if it’s a more recent development. Either way, it’s disgusting, and in this instance will cost people their homes, dignity and possibly even their lives. But so long as austerity’s working I guess… oh, wait…

Cheers
