From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Disabled activist fears eviction after defeat
Tuesday 30 July 2013
Disabled widower Richard Rourke fears he will be evicted from his home over rent arrears as a result of the bedroom tax.
He was among a group of disabled people whose legal challenge over claims that the government’s so-called “bedroom tax” unlawfully discriminates against disabled people in social housing was dismissed by the High Court.
After the ruling Mr Rourke, 46, said: “They make us feel like scroungers and as if we are sub-human – if that was their intention then they have succeeded.”
Since April 2013 wheelchair user Mr Rourke has had his housing benefit reduced by 25 per cent on the basis that he has two bedrooms spare. He is now £251 in rent arrears and fears “it can only get worse.”
