Council Tax Bill.
It’s a double whammy in Salford for some people, as the bedroom tax kicks in quickly follows the council tax beifit reform, this will hit the unemployed, disabled, OAP’S, single parent families and even people who are employed part and full time who only earn just a little to get by, a freedom of information reveals to true extent of how hard the second bite is, a full constituency ward breakdown can be found below,
Little Hulton 1,778
Irwell Riverside 1,389
Walkden North 1,220
Weaste and Seedley 921
Swinton North 855
Swinton South 699
Walkden South 415
Boothstown and Ellenbrook 185
Of the 20,017 of Salford people affected 16,139 are in band A. A lot of people in Salford depend on this benefit, take for instance residents who live on their own in full or part time employment can ask for a single persons council tax reduction and 25% deducted as part of the benefit, In band A it would contribute around £250 off the overall council tax bill, as part of the reform people can no longer claim this and now expected to pay the full tax or face jail, or even have local authority’s hacking in to your wages, if you are unemployed things go from bad to worse you are expected to pay around £80 a month, or the same punishment face jail or be deducted from your benefits.
Also some of these residents affected will also be hit by the bedroom tax in an earlier report produced by Salford British National Party about bedroom tax and just who was affected (Click link) you can see the top wards in this report are almost the same, example Langworthy X 800 affected by bedroom tax, 1,961 affected by council tax benefit reform as the list goes on, just compare it.
Salford British National Party spokesman said “It’s shocking, how are people expected to live? Labour are kicking the arse out of the Salfordians and getting away with it, it’s time to revolt, it’s time to just think about who you vote for, Labour are no good for Salford, get rid of them, even if you don’t vote BNP just vote for someone bar Labour.
“Salford BNP against the cuts would like to hear your views on this matter, we would like you to join the resistance to removing Labour, and if you care for your city then you will take this option, to get involved.
“Do not let Labour scape goat by blaming the Tory’s, its Labour who have been at the core roots of the problem, it’s their fault, they created the monster who is in power today, Labour need to held accountable for their actions to the leading of the mess.”
