Bedroom Tax saves 400 million

 I started this post months ago but never posted it I will leave it as I found it and just add that I would have stated it is never going to save money and is just about Tory idealism.
I was watching TV the other night Question Time or News Night I think and one of the Tory grandee's was defending the God awful idea of the bedroom tax. He recons it will save 400 million quid. His counterpart (I cant remember who either were hash tag instantlyforgettableMP'S) doubted his figures and so do I. We have some 468 local councils and that means each one saving one million a year. Brake that down and some councils like those in the wilds of Cumbria or on the Orkney Isles wont have  enough eligible housing stock to raise much cash. But the worrying figures come when we break it down to The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) Figures
