BROKEN BRITISH POLITICS – BEDROOM TAX SUICIDE
A protest is being staged in Birmingham on Saturday in memory of a woman who commited suicide over the bedroom tax. The demonstration, organised by Birmingham Benefits Justice Campaign, will remember Stephanie Bottrill who left a note blaming the government for her death.
She had been told she would need to pay an extra £20 a week because she lived alone in a three bedroom house after her two children had grown up and moved out.
The demonstration is at 12pm on Saturday in Chamberlain Square.
A freedom of information act request by the Labour Party published in April found 13,557 households are affected by the bedroom tax in Birmingham but just 368 one- and two-bedroom properties are currently unoccupied.
The campaigners have demanded that the council refuse to evict tenants who fall into arrears as a result of the bedroom tax
