Bedroom Tax Campaign

HELP TO SPREAD THE WORD

Today we are launching a major campaign to highlight the incompetent, unfair and out of touch ‘bedroom tax’ David Cameron’s Government will introduce in April.

I need you to share the campaign with your friends, family, neighbours and colleagues – you can help spread the word here

The ‘bedroom tax’ tells you everything you need to know about David Cameron and his government.

While families of soldiers serving our country will have to find extra money for their son or daughter’s bedroom, 13,000 millionaires will get a tax cut worth £100,000 a year on average.

Two thirds of the households hit are home to someone who is disabled.  Foster families will be hit – even if they have foster children in their ‘spare room’.  Divorced parents and grandparents will be charged more if they want to keep a spare room for when their children or grandchildren come to stay.

To add to the chaos, the Department for Work and Pensions has admitted that there are not enough smaller properties for families to move to, yet the ‘bedroom tax’ will still hit households that don’t have the option to move.

Our campaign will put relentless pressure on David Cameron until he sees sense, admits this policy is totally unfair, and thinks again.

You can help the campaign here

Thank you

Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions
