Today the government's bedroom tax took great affect on my life ..150 already owed when told I owe it yet after moving to a disabled friendly home specific to our 3 member all disabled home after 4.5 yrs on priority 1 council list we gave been informed we have to move again from our supposed home for life ..less than 6 months after we moved freeing up a 4 bed home for the council...DIDN'T YOU KNOW ..BRITAIN HASN'T GOT A PARA OLYMPIC TEAM AS NO ONE IN THE UK IS SUPPOSEDLY DISABLED !!!!!

Very frightened of what will happen when my indefinite DLA award is reassessed for PIP. I know I qualify but that seems to mean nothing. If I lose my car I will be virtually housebound. I wish we could make this government understand what it's like to be disabled.
