    Hi @Warlock1968 and welcome to the community. 
    Is there anything specific with these you needed help with or were you looking to discuss the benefit system and bedroom tax more generally?

    Yep Kevin .....[Removed by moderator to comply with guidance on General Election neutrality] knows how totally unfair this tax is , I brought up my family in this house,  i have stayed in this village all my life , i have done so much to the house and gardens , i certainly do not want to walk away with only my memories of the home i brought my family up in...my grandchildrennstay some weekends and if i had a smaller house i would not be able to have my grandchildren to stay some weekends....we used to laugh when we were told of the window tax ....well....this is just the same as the window tax.   Totally Unfair ! .....but don,t worry , some other muppet will dream up another way to tax the working people and leave those without homes lying in the street . One homeless fella died last week,in a car park in Glasgow.....froze to death...God help him .
