Maybe the reason behind Benefit Capping being used instead of Rent Capping?
Politicians cant lose that income, it’ll cripple them (Sarcasm).
Also Bedroom tax doesn’t cover Privately Owned residences, which is good how would they ever be able to live with that extra expense? (Sarcasm again).
Maybe we should ask for a Bathroom tax – En-suites should be taxed, as I don’t know of many Social Housing properties with this extra “Room” but know of many many private homes with extra rooms for just this purpose, some of which could house small families in due to the size of them!
(Not satire – it’s David Cameron)
In light of the coalition government’s announcement that it’s going to cut housing benefit for under-25s, it’s perhaps worth remembering that David Cameron is the first Prime Minister in decades to rent out his own house while he’s resident at number 10.
An arrangement which means he’s pocketing over £6,000 a month in rent while he himself lives in taxpayer subsidised accommodation.
