Rachel Reeves Finally Admits Bedroom Tax is Not a Tax

How does the aspiring Work and Pensions Secretary want to raise money for Labour’s new flagship policy in Scotland?

Reeves wants to scrap the bedroom ‘tax’ and “use the savings” to raise £175 million. But, as should be obvious from Labour’s name for the policy, the bedroom ‘tax’ actually reduces government spending. Saving around a billion pounds so far in fact. Therefore scrapping it would not, as Reeves thinks, ‘save £175 million’. On the contrary, it would cost over a billion. Not like Reeves used to be at the heart of Labour’s Treasury team or anything…
