GMB IN BEDROOM TAX DEMONSTRATION

Comments Off on GMB IN BEDROOM TAX DEMONSTRATION

 

Those affected, along with pressure groups and local politicians and union activists, gathered in Queen Victoria Square, Hull to send a loud and clear message to local government and national government:- “WE ARE NOT GOING AWAY” – “WE DEMAND A REPEAL OF THE BEDROOM TAX IMMEDIATELY”!!

 

This is simply Tory ideology and has no positive outcome.  It is ludicrous to even think that by taxing the most vulnerable and needy, who are already living in third world conditions, that this will raise sufficient tax returns and mask the problem of a severe shortage in cheap social housing is quite frankly, cloud cuckoo land.

 

Further and more disturbing, we understand there is now empty social housing in the East Riding that people are reluctant to take due to this tax trap.bedroom tax

 

Dave Oglesby asserts.

 

“On a positive note, if we see Labour win in 2015 this draconian legislation will be repealed  –  that has got to be worth fighting for, that has got to be worth voting for.”
