Why do people get so angry at someone havinge a 'spare' room ?
Even the supporters of the spare bedroom subsidy have to answer the questions. What about people who have no money to move - how does leaving them with less money help free up 'spare' rooms ? What about the people who want to move but have no smaller accomodation to go to - how does that free up spare rooms ? What about the people who live in properties adapted to cope with disabilities - how does that save the tax payer money ? And why the obsession with bedrooms ? what about the other rooms in the property ? Why should a couple and child people living in a house with two bedrooms, garden, garage, conservatory, kitchen, sitting room, bath room, loft, cellar, utility room and get full housing benefit, and an identical couple in a 3 bedroom high rise flat, including two box rooms and a single open plan living area and shower/toilet get their benefit cut ?
