The bedroom tax: some facts on one of the most callous reforms to the UK benefits system yet dreamt up

Thanks to Labour Left for the image.

For those who don't know about the Bedroom Tax there's a briefing here.

And for those in doubt, this 'tax' will make people homeless, deprive children of their education and access to their parents, cause massive distress to disabled people in  couples who now have to share a bedroom whether they are physically able to or not and cost far more to implement than it can save.

It is in my opinion one of the most blatant assaults on the least well off and their right to enjoy a stable life in the communities of which they are a part that has ever been launched. All of which makes it, rather oddly, remarkably non Conservative.
