Who’s going to question Cameron about his bedroom tax benefiting drug gangs?

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

Worrying evidence is emerging that one of the presumably unintended consequences of the bedroom tax is that drug gangs are benefiting from it.

Tenants who are getting into debt because of the government’s so-called ‘spare room tax’ are being approached by drug gangs who are offering cash in return for being allowed to make use of the rooms as ‘safe houses’ for growing and refining drugs.

Here’s an article about it from local paper the Birmingham Mail:

Council tenants hit by bedroom tax ‘farm out rooms to drugs gangs’

I’d love to hear Cameron wriggle out of that one at Prime Minister’s Question Time.

But unfortunately for us – Her Majesty’s Opposition are stuck in the Westminster bubble just as much as the government is – so they’re not likely to know anything about it either let alone question Cameron in parliament…

About thepositivevoice

We originally set out to advocate and campaign for and on behalf of people living with HIV in Greater Manchester. But we chose to slightly change our name by adding beyond. Therefore our name is Greater Manchester & Beyond of People Living With HIV & AIDS. Cause there are many issues that affects people living with HIV we now look ate other health and social care issues that will affect people living with HIV in their everyday lives. For the purpose of this site we have chosen a strap-line name hence our user name here - this is of course "thepositivevoice". The reason for this is often the issues that affect us can be quite daunting and discriminatory to our very existence. So whatever negative we hear and see - we endeavour to turn that into a positive. There are many examples where a negative has turned into a positive and one of those example is the term "Queer" - well that is also quite interesting as some people in the lesbian and gay community don't like that very word - some have decided to own it. Therefore any person that calls another person (the example here) queer - some gay people will reply yes we are. As time moves on and I as the author of this blog - information will be never-ending. So watch this space.
