A Conservative government will do nothing to relieve the effects found in this report because the Bedroom Tax has done exactly what the Tories wanted.

Not only is it achieving the primary motive – clearing the poor out of attractive areas of real estate and freeing them up for development and occupation by the rich – but it is also ensuring the proles remain too distracted to mount any effective opposition to Tory dominion.

Parents are cutting back on the necessities of life, simply to keep a roof over their heads, while their hungry children are increasingly less able to achieve and more likely to react to their situation with violence – meaning they won’t be any competition for rich children in the world of work and are more likely to populate prisons than boardrooms.

It’s class(room) war.

Education experts are calling on the government to review its bedroom tax after early research indicated it was having an adverse impact on learning because affected children were stressed and hungry at school.

Researchers from Manchester University found that children were showing signs of emotional distress because they were seeing their parents under pressure and were experiencing material hardship as a result of the benefit cut.

Parents were having to cut back on food, shopping for fewer and cheaper provisions, and hungry children were finding it harder to concentrate in lessons, sometimes leading to classroom unrest and aggressive behaviour, the report said.
