Two women were chatting, and one was saying she may well have to move house, as the so-called Bedroom Tax was pricing her out of her current home.

So not only is she facing an empty nest syndrome after her child or children have left home, she might need to up sticks too. And with houses being hard to come by, she might need to move to an all new area. It’s one of those policies where I can understand why, on paper at least, it is a good idea.

Just how it can be put into practice without breaking hearts and communities is beyond me.
