    The caption above says “The SW is incorrect: It’s 11 bedrooms”. But there is no mistake or disagreement over the number of spare bedrooms – as both articles point out, he has a spare mansion with 8 bedrooms, plus 3 spare bedrooms in his London home, giving a total of 11.

      If you had £30 Thousand pounds why did you need to ask for benefits? Are we not all responsible to support ourselves as long as we can, turning to fellow Tax Payers, to ask them to support us when we can no longer do so ?

        Dear Jones

        You are already supporting people with your taxes when the government give a £40,000 tax break to people who earn over £1,000,000 per year
        they did not leave me with the my £30K savings to live off
        they took it all and my benefits,
        so how can I receive support when I can no longer support myself through savings as they took the savings
        they say I am not entitled to support?
        the savings limit is far to low at £6,000 it should be higher around £30,000
        it is a policy to keep people in poverty while at the same time for example sir Phillip green paid himself 1 billion in salary but paid no income tax on the money
        the government just want to strip you of everything they can.

    Important note: If anyone is receiving care from the local authority and paying a contribution out of their benefits, ask them for a financial assessment as you should be able to put your rent against your care costs.
