We had not heard anything about the Bedroom Tax for some time before this story broke. Perhaps people were starting to think it was a policy from the Coalition Government that had had its day.
Well, they can think again.
The Bedroom Tax is still going strong, still causing misery everywhere it is unfairly imposed. This story is undoubtedly just one among thousands.
This shocking picture exposes the brutal reality of David Cameron’s Bedroom Tax – a severely disabled man forced to bathe in a paddling pool in his living room.
The Sunday People is today publishing the photograph at the request of the family of Rob Tomlinson after he was driven out of his specially adapted home by the hated Tory tax.
For years Rob, 48, happily used a purpose-built walk-in shower at a four-bedroom house specially converted for him and his caring relatives by the local council.
But after Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith imposed the Bedroom Tax, Rob’s family fell into debt as they struggled to pay the cost of being penalised for two spare rooms.
They were forced to move and ended up in a privately rented bungalow with no bathroom facilities for the severely disabled.

I also saw it, and the specially equipped bungalow has an elderly couple, who are exempt from the bedroom tax, they only use one bedroom!! That is what I call bloody minded!!
Oh and a few months after the family left, it was discovered that the family Did fit the criteria for bedroom tax exemption!!!
What an absolutely disgusting bunch the tories are, how can they live with themselves. Evil to the core through and through.
CAMERON & CO HAVE STARTED TH KILLING AND WILL CONTINUE UNTIL WE REMOVE HOME FROM OFFICE AND CHARGE HIM AND OTHERS WITH TREASON, I BELIEVE THE DEATH PENALTY STILL EXITS ON STATURE FOR THIS, good governments jobs is to protect the society this is not happening here . they are a killing machine like some in AFRICA AND OTHERS, HITLER STARTED SAME WAY. cameron ids osborn must be destroyed by death legally.
The unfortunate thing is, there will Always be someone else to replace them, you can’t execute everyone
You can set a good example though – “pour encourager les autres”, which is, after all, one of the principle reasons for having a legal system.
I’m emailing a copy of this Story and picture to my MP in the Morning it’s a disgrace 🙁
We need Jeremy Corbyn, and quick.
