This is a prelude to many more – possibly worse – such events happening as bedroom tax evictions start to take place. Here we have a 16-year-old, disabled youth left fighting for his life, due to the callous actions of social housing staff in Hackney, and despite the fact that his family continues to be entitled to social housing.
From what we see here, it seems that, following the death of this young man’s father, the heads at Hackney Homes decided the family home of the previous 40 years was now too big for them.
