    Who but a tory could remain unmoved by such a letter. Cameron is a tory, his reply ” just calm down dear its for your own good dear the change will be good for you” If you gave them baths they would only keep the coal in them!

    If mr Cameron does nothing about this case there is no hope for this country . I used to vote Tory ,never again.

        I honestly thought they would treat people fairly. However that has not been the case. I myself am being chucked off ESA after 25 yrs of mental health problems . The DWP have not taken the slightest bit of notice of letters both from my GP & my psychiatrist . I never believed the Tories would be so in humane treating people like this.

    Everyone who is going to suffer because of the bedroom tax should write a letter to Cameron and their local MP, ALWAYS ask for a reply! then send a copy of that letter to your local paper.
    Lets shame these MP’s who couldn’t give a damn about the suffering of their constituents.

    The true face of the Tories is showing through,I have never ever and could not vote Tory to save my life.This poor woman,she has gone through so much in her life and when it’s her turn for help she is turned away.
    At the next election it will be very hard to find anyone admitting to have helped to put this lot into power.

    I realy think these MPS`s rank on par with the begining polocies of Nazi Germany in the 1930`s.They started with disabeled and gradualy worked their way around to their objectives with the general public fed misinformation and propoganda exactly as is happening now .Even now ex military personel ,injured in service are having benefits withdrawn just as happened then to those Heroes disabeled in WW1.The assault on the weakest in society is so successful because directly it does not effect the rest of the population who are only glad that this means they are being left alone.When those people later loose their rites like contracts ,terms of service redundancy ,retirement pay holiday pay and other hard fought for benefits that their forefathers fought so hard for against the ruling classes they will start to realise what has happened, “10600 so far and increasing “,are directly or indirectly loosing life even when the Governments fake medical done by Atos has said they are fit enough for work.Criminaly despite these Facts and the medical proffession calling for these assesments to stop our Government contiues so are publicly & knowingly guilty of crimes against humanity against the United Nations Convention of Human rites. Have no doubts more will suffer ,more will Die, but we must persevere and remember who they were and who is responsible.The present MP`s have crossed a line and even if they stop now are still the same as the murders that created the hollocaust.Their Policies have been sanctioned by Lords and unfortunaely the Monarchy which Saddens me deeply but shows how far this is approved.With the cuts on taxes for the most wealthy,the failure to recoup taxes from offshore havens & big corperations that sponser so many of our MP`s .A total failure to bring the speculative bankers who proffited by the creation of another world slump as the have repeatedly done to justice, and reign in ther freedom IS ACLEAR INDICATOR THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION ARE BEING COMPLETELY EXPLOITED BY THE MOST WEALTHY , INFLUENTIAL & ENPOWERED.

    I have just been checking out the sunday people and there 139 comments on there but when you try to read them the sunday people’s server is so slow it wont let you in too read them? whats annoying is with these reforms is that a boy & girl under age of age have share same bedroom and these rules only apply to those on benefits and not those in full time work? as Cameron was never voted in and blackmailed libDem in to Govt’ment should have been null & void due X amount of polling station where closes & voters turned away? this should called for a new election!!! meaning Cameron went a step toooo far? One has to agree with Julias letter and it appears that the powers to be have been on to sunday people and told stop anyone leaving any comments?

    Why on earth are they including two bedroomed homes. Where i live, there are very few one bedroomed flats. Those that do exist, are probably not suitable for disabled people or older people come to that. Bungalows for the elderly and disabled people are usually two bedroomed.

    It’s just another way to line the pockets of their rich cohorts and themselves.. at the end of WW2 this country was a hairs width away from bankrupcy, and they had the money to put together the welfare state……..SO WHY DO THEY NOW SAY THEY HAVE ‘NO MONEY TO SUPPORT THE DISABLED ETC’. I’LL TELL YOU WHY, COS THEY ARE FAT GREEDY B######S WHO ONLY LOOK OUT FOR THEMSELVES……………It’s time we used article 61 of the MAGNA CARTA to hold them to account….David Cameron should take a pistol to his head and do the right thing…..

    “The letter that shames David Cameron”he can’t be shamed he doesn’t give a dam about ordinary working class people.I live by “my word is my bond”but Cameron has broken so many election promises,I believe he is a compulsive liar.

    THIS bedroom tax is not to give homes to people living in overcrowded propertys if that were true then it would be apply to all on social housing ,this is just a blatant attack on the poorest in society the low paid and people on benefits, get these evil torys out ,

    I really worry about how people will manage when this bedroom tax comes in to effect. It has not been thought out at all. At the moment it won’t affect me, but I know, in time, it will do, and then I will have to move out of my disabled adapted property and into a small property which probably wont even have disabled access for my wheelchair. I hope the conservatives and liberal dems are happy with themselves. Personally, I lay awake every night wondering how I am going to manage paying my bills already, how I am goin to manage after, I really don’t know. I’ve got constant pain due to a spinal injury, and I also suffer from depression. This is not helping me at all, and I know that I am not alone, but hey so long as David Cameron and Nick Clegg and their lot are ok, it doesn’t matter does it.
