Today sees the bedroom tax policy, or at least a tiny part of it, reach the Supreme Court, the highest court in the land.  It has taken 35 months for this to happen and meanwhile over a million men women and children have suffered from this pernicious policy.  Many have lost their homes, many have been evicted, many have gone short and much more than the over simplistic and pithy saying of a choice of heat or eat: Many have put their health and their children’s health at risk and a number have committed suicide.

I could go on with what some will call emotive arguments and some others will only focus on its not a tax its a benefit reduction and many other ideological and political deflections, yet for me it comes down to whether the Supreme Court has balls or it is chicken.
