Bedroom tax will cause hardship
LAST Saturday (March 16) I went to Liverpool to a peaceful demonstration to "Stop the Bedroom Tax". There were a lot of very passionate, ordinary people telling how the Bedroom Tax would affect them.
It was encouraging to see so many people trying to stop this injustice. I have emailed Lord Freud twice but have not received anything helpful back from him!
This so-called tax will cause untold hardship to many ordinary people, who are already suffering from the recession. I urge everyone, whether affected or not, to write to your MP or Lord Freud to tell the Government to think again and withdraw this monstrous benefit cut.
