I have just taken a call from a resident about the bedroom tax.
She lives with her two young children in a three bedroom property and is now being asked to pay extra for the third room. But apparently she's "entitled" to the additional room because her 6 year-old is "hyper-active" and keeps the 5 year-old awake by shouting and screaming into the night. Apparently it's 'not fair'.
I asked her if she thought it was fair that my assistant, who is 25 years old and works full time, should be asked to pay additional tax to subsidise her unruly child having a bedroom of his own, when he still lives at home with his parents. And whether she thought it was fair that he cannot possible afford the deposit on a one-bedroom flat, let alone a three bedroom house.
I suspect she won't be voting Conservative.
