The mind boggles at the persistence of claims that there are no costs related to the Bedroom Tax. How many appeals have there been, now? How many extra Discretionary Housing Payments? What about the extra costs of housing people who are evicted and become a burden on their local councils, who have to house them in bed and breakfast accommodation?
And then there are the suicides. I don’t know how many there have been, but there certainly have been some. What happens to the people left behind and how much does THAT cost – in monetary terms alone?
