Salford Labour Cash In On Bedroom Tax
UN Special Rapporteur Raquel Rolnik, visit’s Salford to see the impact this ‘bedroom tax’ has on people’s human rights.
The bedroom tax was brought in April 2013 and targets the most vulnerable and most needy in life, single parent families, disabled and the unemployed are the most the 5500 in Salford affected.
Labour who scape goat and blame the Tory’s, say their against the tax, but on the other hand demanding payments and in worst case evicting people who cannot afford to pay up.
Raquel Rolnik was incredibly outspoken about the Bedroom Tax, telling journalists that "My immediate recommendation is that the Bedroom Tax is abolished...
"I was very shocked to hear how people really feel abused in their human rights by this decision and why – being so vulnerable – they should pay for the cost of the economic downturn, which was brought about by the financial crisis" she added "People in testimonies were crying, saying 'I have nowhere to go', 'I will commit suicide'."
Raquel Rolnik will report her findings to the Human Rights Council at its 25th session in March 2014 in Geneva.
Salford British National Party spokesman tells correspondents “I have said this time and time again, the bedroom tax can be avoided, and all it takes is for the council to stop wasting tax payers money left right and centre under the Labour Party, start looking after our own first, use the money where we need it the most, and that is with the most vulnerable who need the help in Salford”.
