Bedroom Tax - No Evictions on Tyneside

Bedroom Tax - No Evictions on Tyneside

We are supporters of Tyneside No Bedroom Tax Campaign. We call on Tyneside's local authorities - Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside, South Tyneside - to block the eviction of social housing tenants unable to pay their rent due to the unjust bedroom tax. We urge all local councillors to support this pledge.

Why is this important?

We call on our councillors and local authorities to protect people from the frightening threat of eviction from their homes.

Reasons for signing

  • Just plain unfair as there are no one-bedroomed properties available! Inflicting misery on the most vulnerable. PS This should be a national campaign.
  • It is iniquitous to claim this tax is implemented in the name of the Taxpayer. Nothing could be further from the truth and we shall all pay the price for its iniquities...
  • If you appealing BT then no court should evict you, but we know what courts can be like, there should be no such BT in first place!
