Agreed, scrap the benefit and we wouldn't have this shambles.

I hope you mean scrap the bedroom tax rather than scrap housing benefit!

So infuriating the Guardian writes like this:

Quote:
The policy imposes an average penalty of between 14 and 22 a week on working-age tenants deemed to have more bedrooms than they need.


Therefore it follows

"Welfare policy imposes an average penalty of between 200 and 400 a week on honourable honest workers given no bedrooms by the state."

That's horrific, so you'd have 1000s of families living on the streets then?

Benefits should be short term not a lifestyle choice. I am sure there are some genuine cases but majority in my view are undeserving of my money.
