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.
