I understand the concept behind the bedroom tax, in that people don't get housing benefit for rooms they don't actively use. The way it was applied was wrong. There are people need a room to store medical equipment, for carers, children from another marriage, panic room for domestic abuse, room for a special needs child, the list is endless. Some of these people are hit by the bedroom tax, even though they need the 'spare' room. The lack of 2 and 1 bedroom housing to move people into is also a problem. No point punishing people in social housing for having an extra room if you have nowhere else suitable to move them into!
