Re: uk bedroom tax,the road to riots
Over your history, you have had some rather unethical tax schemes perpetuated by the government and some you found unique ways of overcoming such as bricking in windows to avoid the window tax.

However, the bedroom tax hurts those disabled and in government housing who were offered a place with more than one bedroom.

I agree. Might get better for us all after Scottish independence but I've got a feeling Salmond’s government will be even more totalitarian than nulobor was. Running out of options over here.

It's not as drastic as OP is making out. Basically people in social housing, with more bedrooms than they use will be asked to pay up or relocate. They will be allowed to sublet the spare room to cover the tax if they choose to. I agree with OP's sentiment but this is not the spark we need.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22296905


I keep wondering if they're going to try to count my office as a bedroom. Maybe I should rent out the floor space in it to some homeless and just trip over them every morning when I log in.

Oh never mind, it only applies to council housing.
Guess I'm safe.

Re: uk bedroom tax,the road to riots
Someone explain this to me?
What is Universal Credit?

I may live here but I've always had an aversion to taking government money because I feel like it makes me obligated to them. I don't even know what half of this stuff is.

"What about lodgers?
From April 2013 lodgers will count as occupying a room under the size criteria rules. Any income from a lodger will be taken into account and deducted pound for pound from benefit apart from the first £20. This reverses under Universal Credit – lodgers will not be counted as occupying a room and the size criteria reduction will apply, but any income from lodgers will be fully disregarded and will not impact on the amount of a claimant’s Universal Credit award."

Stick your bedroom tax in the cupboard, close the cupboard and then vacate the bedroom closing the door behind you, descend the stairs, turn to face the front door, open and walk out and burn. Crash and burn baby... crash and burn...

That wont work, this is basically a tax on tenants who have rented accommodation, the specification of the house is applied.

IE a single person living in a home with 1 or 2 spare bedrooms will have to pay if those bedrooms are not being utilized under specific rules.

The spark will be whatever straw breaks the camels back.. Which really could be anything at the moment.. from utilities to taxes.. although taxes, any tax is usually a favourite..

One excuse for.. not sure which of our civil wars it was, but the Ship tax was a good enough excuse to oppose government and start a civil war..

(just off to look it up)

So that would be one of the causes of English Civil War number 1 of 3.

Yeah, from what I read the number of bedrooms is defined by the agency that rented out the flat... not according to if you are hiding beds.

There are some cities around me that are already implementing similar measures. They do it through zoning, certain areas are allowed a particular density, if you have more people in your house than the given density, you pay a fine (tax).

I think its related to agenda 21.

Re: uk bedroom tax,the road to riots
I think this is basically just a tax to claw back some of the money from people they couldn't house in smaller accommodation; because it either wasn't available to house them at the time, or they lived under different circumstances at the time of the initial rent agreement.
