Department for Work and Pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith would have us all believe that families with children are denied council accommodation because smaller families are selfishly occupying houses and flats too big for their needs.
The UK government estimate of 660,000 households will be facing the realities of the 'pay up or get out' home ultimatum - in our opinion is a vast underestimate of the real total, which look set to be over 900,000. Most of the 900,000 families concerned, 30 per cent of whom are in low-paid jobs qualifying them for welfare benefits, will not choose to move from workplaces or from neighbourhoods in which they have settled and where their children attend school.
Tenants will try to absorb the benefit cut by reducing expenditure on other necessities or will fall into rent arrears, opening the way to eviction. Those who do decide to move out will find that there are few if any council properties to meet their assessed needs, forcing them into the arms of the more expensive private rented sector.
This Saturday 'Make some NOISE !! ... The UK government has the 'bare face' cheek to demand that 'we' the people be penalised under the 'Bedroom Tax' - this is OUR opportunity to tell them 'what we think' of their bedroom tax ! We need jobs, we demand quality in life, we demand the ability to live in dignity, we are not animals, we are not vermin - we're human beings....
A government is suppose to provide a standard of living, protection & opportunity to provide for our kids - an adequate welfare state to protect when required.
David Cameron you are ... on notice - you will be evicted by the British people - you are occupying 10 Downing Street without the true consent of the people!
We did not start this... We did not want this... BUT.. we're going to finish it !
This is the most perverse policy since the introduction of the Poll Tax by Margaret Thatcher. David Cameron this is your 'Poll Tax' Moment !
Your Government is attacking the most poor and vulnerable in our society.
But you have made a massive mistake.
On Saturday the people speak as ONE in ConDemNation on your government - Out ! Out ! Out !
This is war .......... class war !!
In the next 24 hours hundreds of thousands willl be marching against a vindictive, ruthless government with NO sense of empathy - against an evil vindictive law commonly known by the people as the 'Bedroom Tax' !!
Margaret Thatcher once said: 'There is no such thing as Society'
John Major said 'We were living in a Classless Society' .....
Make no mistake - there is such a thing as 'society' & the Conservatives firmly believe in a 'us & them' society.
David Cameron now wants you to believe 'We're all in this together - in the big society' !!
The conservatives are using Political deception - "The bigger the lie, the more it will be believed." quote from a fascist in the 1930's a Dr. Joseph Goebbels.
'Respect For the Unemployed & Benefit Claimants' rejects this vindictive tax on the most vunerable members in our society - the bedroom tax will 'hit' those IN WORK & pensioners, the unemployed, the disabled - the bedroom tax should concern EVERYONE in society. We the people will build our 'own' society based on mutual respect ! On Saturday we the people speak as ONE in ConDemNation on 10 Downing Street - Out ! Out ! Out !
