We shall not be moved

I went on my first demonstration today.

What got me off my bum? The bedroom tax that's what.

No it doesn't affect me directly I don't get housing benefit I don't live in social housing but the way people are being treated makes me incredibly angry and ashamed.

So I went to show solidarity because I am happy to pay taxes to provide a safety net and I don't think it is right that MPs who have their housing and food subsidised by my taxes should take away the little that other people have.This tax makes no sense other than to punish people for being poor it will cost more to collect than it will ever save. All I can see is the green eyed jealousy of people who are not content with having more than most they want everything and they make me sick.

Yay for you! I thoroughly agree about the bedroom tax. Hope you enjoyed the demo - I've always found them a heartening and enjoyable experience.

Yes I really enjoyed it I was pleasantly surprised. Then was thinking to myself perhaps I should get out more :)
