Bad news on bedroom tax

An update on todays’ bedroom tax vote

There’s no way to sugarcoat this, G: we just lost our parliamentary vote on the Bedroom Tax.

Time and time again we’ve tried to get this cruel law scrapped — and every time the government has voted to keep it.

If one thing’s clear, it’s that the Tories and Lib Dems really, really like the Bedroom Tax.

But we are disgusted by it. This is a moral issue: the tax hits hardest at the most vulnerable, most of all children in poverty and people with disabilities.

So no matter how many times they vote to protect it, we will keep pushing the government to scrap the Bedroom Tax, keep forcing votes in Parliament, keep speaking up — and keep building our record of public opposition.

In the last week alone, you and an astonishing 159,339 others have gone on the record against the Bedroom Tax — the largest public outcry against this law that our country has seen yet.

Thank you – now let’s keep growing and keep the pressure on the government.

Please share this graphic with your friends and family and ask them to go on record against the Bedroom Tax too. Or, you can forward on the email below.

Scrap the Bedroom Tax

Thank you.

Hi,

The Tories and Lib Dems just voted against scrapping the Bedroom Tax – yet again.

But we’re not going to give up on trying to get rid of it – Labour has built an official record of opposition to the Bedroom Tax to which 159,339 people have now added their name.

I’ve signed it too – we’re going to use the record to keep putting pressure on the government to finally scrap this cruel, unfair tax.

The more people on the record, the more pressure on the government – so can you add your name too? Click here to do it: http://action.labour.org.uk/bedroom-tax-sign

Thanks.
