Campaigners set out their stall in Southend: Southend Against the Cuts set up a stall outside Southend’s Odeon

Echo: No to cuts – campaigners collected names on petitions No to cuts – campaigners collected names on petitions

CAMPAIGNERS against the Government’s bedroom tax collected hundreds of signatures on a petition calling for the measure to be scrapped.

Southend Against the Cuts set up a stall outside Southend’s Odeon and chairman Tim Sneller said there was a good response from the public.

He said: “We had about 30 supporters leafleting, petitioning and speaking to people on a microphone.

“We collected hundreds of signatures on a petition about the bedroom tax and found it’s an issue even when people aren’t directly affected.

“We also met a lot of people who had been affected by the various benefits changes.

“It showed us there are a lot of real problems in Southend being caused by the bedroom tax, including a rise in the use of food banks, and people see it as being unfair.”

The group also collected signatures against a proposal to transfer staff from South Essex’s blood test services to French company Integrated Pathology Partnerships.

No such thing as bedroom tax it's a under-occupancy penalty which is deducted before payment is made to recipient so therefore it is NOT a tax, the name "bedroom Tax" was attached by the popular press and the public, and give a false representation of what it actually is.

Now where are my dozens of thumbs down for stating fact over fiction.

Good idea do this on a work day so the only people who can sign the petition are people on benefits so they would agree the bedroom tax is wrong.
like usual its the working class that suffer.

The government website describes it as removal of the spare room subsidy. There are a lot of exemptions such as rooms for carers, soldiers etc. iIt is not fair that social housing tenants get housing that working people renting privately cannot afford. This removal of subsidy goes some way addressing the inequality.

Are you afraid of questions. Maybe you can answer the question

How does this tax help 'working people renting privately.'

How much money has this tax saved the country.

How many houses has this tax 'freed up'

Should this tax be rolled across the board? If not why not.

And not a question mark in sight.

Will you answer these questions? (****)

BTW it was also termed a "under-occupancy penalty" as another poster rightly asserts...I would say the best judge of what is it are those suffering the effects of it..who would know better than they...and they seem to term it 'The bedroom tax' c'est la vie.
