Tories’ tax on rooms

Posted: June 23, 2010 in Broken Britain

‘Housing Benefit will be cut by 10% for people of working age who are in larger homes than their family size warrants’.

Oh nice, people living on the poverty line receiving housing benefit will be penalised because their homes are considered too big for them. Hmmm, a tax on rooms, a bit like the old window tax. I suppose a way around it would be to knock down bedroom connecting walls thus reducing the number of bedrooms. Where will they these people find this extra money from in these austere times?

‘Lone parents will be expected to look for work when their youngest child goes to school’.

Let’s see now, we already have millions of people unemployed and a never ending stream of migrants entering the UK competing for what few jobs we have.
I understand the government want more people working so they can tax them to the hilt but who wants to employ a person who can’t start work before about 9:30, has to go home before 15:00, have days off because of school training days and about twelve weeks off during the year because of school holidays. Never mind when their children are sick.
When will these lone parents do everything required to bring up a family on their own if they’re working?

Anyway the real reason we have so many unemployed.

IlieAn award winning Chinese restaurant and takeaway in Brigg were caught employing an illegal immigrant.

UK Border Agency visited the China Royal takeaway in Bridge Street on Tuesday 15 June having received intelligence of illegal working.

After checking the documents of all staff, a 34-year-old Chinese man was arrested when he was found to be illegally in the UK and not entitled to work. He was interviewed by our officers who discovered he was a failed asylum seeker.

Five illegal workers have been caught in Stamford.
Acting on intelligence, UK Border officers visited the Voujon Indian restaurant in Broad Street at 1805 on 10 June 2010. The officers sealed all exits before interviewing the workers and checking their immigration status.

They found five Bangladeshi men who had no permission to work in the UK. Checks revealed that two of the men, aged 34-years-old and 29-years-old, had overstayed their work permits while a 26-year-old had overstayed his visit visa. All three illegal workers were arrested and detained.

Another 29-year-old man was identified as an illegal entrant to the UK and a 35-year-old man was found to be a failed asylum seeker. They were temporarily released on immigration bail.
