I haven’t been on the site very much lately UTI and ms hug prevented me from sitting at the computer.
I was just wondering if there had been a discussion on here about the 53 year old grandmother with Myasthenia gravis, who sadly took her life last week, she was so worried about paying the extra rent and not wanting to leave the area where her friends were and knowing that she couldn’t possibly live on the money she would have left after paying this tax, that she took the only way out (that she could see).
. On hearing the story I felt appalled that the government (including Lib Dems) can bring something in like Bedroom tax without any thought for the vulnerable. When I read that she has Myasthenia gravis (a neurological condition). It made me very angry indeed. She may have been able to claim from a fund set up by the council but obviously no one had advised her of this.
Sorry but what ever your political persuation (our MP is pretty good and he’s a Tory)! if you have any sort of compassion, you must feel as I do that with all the wealth in this country it’s a poor b…shame, RIP Stephanie Bottrill
Sorry if this has already been discussed.
