Can things get any worse for the poorer members of England’s society

Today the Daily Telegraph ran an article about the bedroom tax. The link is here and is a must read. They even called it the ‘bedroom tax’ and this is as serious as it gets for ALL pensioners and for all social landlords.
DO NOT think this is just the mixed-age pensioner couples being hit by the bedroom tax as is well known to be the policy under Universal Credit, this Tory plan in the Daily Torygraph is not about the 70 – 90,000 estimated to be mixed-age pensioner couples, this is about the bedroom tax being applied to 515,000 pensioners who under occupy in social housing.
Let me say that again this plan, the Tory plan is to hit 514,800 pensioners with the bedroom tax.
To explain and to prove that huge figure is simple and is not hyperbole or scaremongering or anything else from me at all…
