Big Fat Lie!

There is a substantial fabrication going on because 96% of benefit claimants who are being inflicted a penalty on won’t get rehoused because there are plainly not the necessary smaller homes to go around for those that live in larger houses.

The spare bedroom tax simply punishes low-income people because they’re living in a larger house and, even more so, those that have been made to leave their bigger houses because they don’t have the money to stay there; those larger homes are being left vacant and, councils are making it known that they may have to knock them down in the end.

Families that have been hit by the bedroom tax are at the moment trapped in their bigger houses because they have nowhere else to go that is smaller within the bounds of the social housing stock.

Liam Byrne, the shadow Work and Pensions Secretary said: “The big lie behind this Government’s spiteful bedroom tax is now plain for all to see. Ministers like to claim it’s not a tax, but the truth is more than 96 per cent of those hit have nowhere to move to.


This bed tax is entrapping thousands of families and coercing vulnerable people to food banks and loan sharks.


There is at the moment the serious possibility that it could end up costing Britain extra money than it retains because tenants are being forced to go homeless or relocate to costly private rented quarters.

It’s now obvious that the government has made a serious error with this strategy and that they must discard it before more lives are destroyed.

Chris Goulden, head of poverty at the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, said: “It is very difficult to see how this policy can work without causing severe hardship, particularly as many of those affected are disabled people. The housing benefit bill could also rise if more people move into the private rented sector because of a shortage of one or two-bedroom properties in social housing.”


In spite of the fact, the DWP are ascertaining that social housing tenants who want to downsize could alternatively spend their housing benefit on private housing, even though there is already a serious sparseness of small, inexpensive private dwellings and, tenants could in fact spend their housing benefit on private housing, but what about the two months retainer they have to put down before they can even move in and, who is going to pay for that?


Hannah Smith, 28, lives in a three-bedroom house in Hyde, Cheshire, with children Gracey, 7, and Jake, 6.

I’ve always said that this house could be for a bigger family. I’ve been asking on and off for the last six years for a two-bedroom place, but the housing association said it couldn’t happen, so I’ve been stuck here.

As well, deteriorating coastal towns all over Britain are at the moment are being afflicted with acute social failure because they’re becoming dumping grounds for people on low incomes or welfare benefits, that have been pushed out from the inner city regions.

Hotels that formerly housed holiday makers are being adapted into inexpensive flats for the vulnerable tenants and, properties are also being used by councils in the more affluent sectors as low-cost alternatives for housing children in care.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
