    Another death - bedroom tax

    In my village - it seems the person concerned hung themselves at 47 years old.
    Very sad

    Awful, my heart goes out to their family and loved ones.
    What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

    OMG, this is getting to be homicide on a grand scale, and the Government are the perpetrators. The heartache he/she must have gone through before making this decision. My heart is with his/her family.

    I have always said that this government are trying to kill us off through the back door. Less claiments, less payouts. Murders is too good a word for them.

    I'm sure that "Bedroom Tax" is not solely responsible for one taking their life.

    Possibly not ivb, but when you live so close to the wire, with no spare pennies for an extra loaf of bread and suddenly the Council want to take £20 per month or whatever, it can easily push you over the edge.

    I don't think they've even given it that amount of thought to be honest Beau. Most of them are now so far removed from reality of life's ups and downs. With too much moeny behind them to contemplate how quickly someone with little savings can get by without some sort of income be it from benefits or whatever. To someone like Osbourne, Cameron we're just ants on the ground.
