London pensioner can have 5 bedrooms: in Hull it’s not even 1

Even the most right-wing Tories who say that those on benefit should not expect to live in “prime real estate” London will be bemused by this policy that DOES allows the taxpayer in Housing Benefit to pay for a pensioner to have 4 or more spare bedrooms paid for by the taxpayer – the same taxpayer who will not pay for zero spare bedrooms for a pensioner social tenant in Hull!In summary, the Tory government does not know its rectum from its humerus and its cuts to entitlement to and levels of Housing Benefit do not even fit its claimed superficial rationale of freeing up social housing properties, once again proving the Tories HB policies toward social tenants are led by ideology and have no basis in fact or purpose.
