bedroomtax

Vox Political has demonstrated very clearly the point made in the title of this Guy Debord’s Cat article – many times. However, it contains appealing aspects and is worth perusal. For example:

The so-called Spare Room Subsidy, which is more accurately termed “The Bedroom Tax”, is an example of [Tory] cruelty. However the term “Spare Room Subsidy” itself is indicative of their ignorance. Since when was a charge for something considered a ‘subsidy’?

The Oxford English Dictionary describes a subsidy as:

A sum of money granted by the state or a public body to help an industry or business keep the price of a commodity or service low.

An example of this would be

a farm subsidy

Does the Bedroom Tax sound like a “subsidy” to you? No, it doesn’t sound like one to me either.
