If a person on the council waiting list is offered a 2 bedroom property because the council does not have any one bedroom properties to offer them, they will still be charged 14% bedroom tax. If they refuse the property because they will be unable to pay the bedroom tax the council can and probably will strike them from the list for refusing the property and intentionally making themselves homeless.
Why has the Tory controlled government aided and abetted by the Liberal democrats allowed this ridiculous myopic bedroom tax to get this far? It's obvious to anyone with a modicum of common sense that this is not going to work, the policy has more holes than sieve, yet still the arrogant Cameron, Osborne, Duncan-Smith and Clegg are pushing on with this policy which is going to cause, poverty, pain, hardship and distress to 600,000 people and a catastrophic problem with homelessness.
The Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats are unfit for Government, they haven't a clue what they are doing and the chain reaction caused by their policies passes cleanly over their heads.
