We had a good discussion last night at the meeting about what position we should take with regard to Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) like Pennine Housing.
On one hand a view was expressed that Housing Associations collecting the Bedroom Tax and holding the threat of eviction over people who can't pay are the enemy and to be treated as such.

Another view was expressed that RSLs are also victims of the Bedroom Tax and the government's privatisation agenda and that we should explore ways of working with them to oppose the Tax. That we should see them as allies in the fight.

There was unanimity that there is a key demand of RSLs is that no-one falling into arrears, through inability to pay the tax, should face the threat of eviction.

This does not address the problem of mounting debt.

The overall aims of the campaign was expressed as
Abolition of the Tax
Reimpursement of payments to tenants.

What do you think?

Absolutely!
Any anger or frustration at this tax should be directed at those responsible: the government. In particular we should lobby our local MP and the Housing Minister Mark Prisk MP.
