According to the attached story, the maximum amount of housing benefit a family will be able to claim next year will be reduced from £103,000 to £20,800 a year.
What the fuck? £20,800 a year is nearly twice what the very damn nice 2-bedroom flat I am renting costs a year.
What does £103,000 get a year? Why have I been paying towards this as a tax-payer?
Two words – Labour government.
Howard Farrand, The Chartered Institute of Housing’s president, said: “They [the changes] will impact on the ability of worse-off families to live in more affluent areas”.
Oh no. Why not pay for me to live in a more affluent area too?
The country clearly went crazy over the last 13 years and I know who I blame.
