Labour’s attempt to abolish the bedroom tax stopped by LibDems

Of all the attacks on working people by the coalition, the bedroom tax is among the very worst.

I am proud that Labour is leading the fight against it and will fund the repeal of the Bedroom tax by closing boardroom tax loopholes.

The impact of the bedroom tax is massive, affecting some of the most vulnerable people in our societies.

Citizens Advice has welcomed the pledge to end the Bedroom Tax. 

Some people say parties are all the same, and it doesn’t matter who wins elections. The bedroom tax shows that there is a clear choice facing the British people at the next election – one Prime Minister who introduced the bedroom tax and another who will repeal it.

You can’t trust the Tories with the NHS

The coalition is determined to privatise, fragment and run down the NHS.

We must not let them.

Council Tax Benefit

David Cameron says we’re ‘all in this together’ but in April this year he imposed a council tax increase which hit Britain’s strivers and the most vulnerable.

From April this year, over two million people – people in work, carers, the disabled, veterans and war widows – saw their council tax go up. Why?

Because the Government cut the funding that goes to the Council to keep their council tax down – and it’s ordinary people who are paying the price. At the same time David Cameron chose to give every millionaire a tax cut worth £100,000 a year.

And he did this with the complete and full support of the Liberal Democrats. They had the chance to stop this. And they didn’t take it.

The Tories are asking working people to pay more while millionaires pay less. It’s not just unfair – it’s completely wrong. And it shows that David Cameron is completely out of touch.
