What Is With This Bedroom Tax?!

I don’t get it. Who decided the rules for this bedroom tax business? I mean, I am all for saving money and should we have had a “spare” room, I would be more than happy to live somewhere else, or loose the money.

What I don’t think people realise is that its not just the people with extra or spare rooms that are being affected.

We live in a three bedroomed house. So that’s myself, Hubby, Pops and Beboo. The girls have a room each, one of which is a TINY almost pointless room and me and Hubby share obviously.

We are deemed to have a spare room, because we have two girls. They can share.

Now, maybe then can, but why should they?! At some point they will need their own space.

But that is not the only reason I am mad and perplexed, no. The main reason is because this house is adapted for me.  Before we moved in in-fact. So on my worst days I can still function safely in the house, throw in the fact that due to my extreme fatigue, sometimes Hubby sleeps downstairs as I need to rest, so he is not always in our bed.

Same goes for me, when I relapse, I will stay downstairs, near the toilet as to not risk falling on the stairs.

People and their situations are not always so cut and dry,whoever it was who decided what makes a room “spare” needs to wake up and start living in the real world.

A lovely lady on twitter has been affected as she and her daughter has a two bedroomed house. Meaning they can share?!

SINCE WHEN?!

Since when the hell was this seen as okay or normal?! 

This country is getting worse not better and so far, I have only seen the poor affected.
