“Unable to pay bedroom tax – then move. But…. we won’t let you!”

“Unable to pay your Bedroom Tax? Move! But you’re in arrears because of the Bedroom Tax, so we’re not going to let you move.”The government are idiots. (this is a comment to the following post on the facebook page Bedroom Tax…think its unfair…join the fight here)“I was speaking to one of my neighbours today. She’s disabled and was awarded an adapted house, she’s been trying to move for 2 years because the house is now too big for just her and her husband but hasn’t had any luck. She’s been refused Discretionary Housing Payment, I don’t know why because she should qualify and she has only been able to afford to pay our Housing Association £11 a week. She’s on Homeswapper and has just found out that because she’s in rent arrears solely because of the bedroom tax, she’s had her Homeswapper account restricted, which means she can’t contact people to try to move!! She’s basically stuffed!!”
