Guardian Letter Yesterday

Recommended Posts

http://www.guardian.co.uk/theguardian/2013/may/31/eyewatering-leaps-mps-bedroom-tax-mushrooms

It's here - was it in the paper yesterday?

:)

• I'm impressed by Leeds council's initiative (Leeds council tackles bedroom tax with semantic solution, 30 May). There are people in overcrowded homes who'd love just the right amount of bedrooms, let alone a spare one – perhaps even people working on low pay in cramped accommodation who are really happy about paying for others to have spare rooms or excess "non-specific rooms".

Meanwhile the south of England is littered with 'second homes' and 'holiday' homes that sit empty most of the year- but-oddly- it's only the morals of the poor that need concern us-apparently.

If you have the money you can behave as selfishly as you want and that's ok?

Interesting value system.

Absolutely nothing.

Saying a bedroom isn't a bedroom whilst there are people overcrowded is just plain wrong.
