Millionaire Tories take benefits from millions: How Dare They!

Issue No. 2347

A blizzard of cuts is set to rob billions from people on benefits this month.

Ministers with spare mansions think they can punish poor people for having spare bedrooms.

The MPs who fleeced their expenses say disabled people are scroungers.

“I’m actually afraid to sit down and figure out the impact the bedroom tax will have on me,” said Marion Nisbet in Glasgow. “My benefits are being cut while my rent is going up.”

But the revolt is growing. Thousands protested against the bedroom tax last week.

“This could be Cameron’s poll tax,” said Marion. “If we get out and knock on doors, speak to people and build unity in action, we can force them to bin the bedroom tax.”
