There are many rooms in my Father’s house, and I am going to prepare a place for you. I would not tell you this if it were not so. John 14.2 (New International Version).

“I am grateful to Ipswich Unemployed Action for the opportunity, on this special day, to write a guest post.

There has been much talk of the ‘Bedroom Tax’.

In reality this is a much needed structural adjustment allocation relocation of spare space subsidy measure.

As I said to the East Anglian Daily Times, on March the 20th,

The government is right to insist that local councils sort our benefits for local council taxes.

Suffolk County Council has taken the opportunity to improve the benefits it provides; I am only sad that – once again – the Borough has chosen to be political rather than imaginative about what it does.

Other councils – including Labour ones – elsewhere in the country are coming up with better solutions to helping vulnerable people.

“And on spare bedrooms – most people just do not understand why Housing Benefit is being paid for empty rooms which are desperately needed by families across Ipswich.

My Government is helping vulnerable people find new homes in the doorways of Ipswich shops all the time.

On this, the holiest time of the year, should we not think of the poor?

Beati pauperes spiritu!

Blessed are the poor! May they increase!!”
