Ministers were accused last night of deliberately driving poor people out of wealthy inner cities as London councils revealed they were preparing a mass exodus of low-income families from the capital because of coalition benefit cuts.
Why should poor people be subsidised to live in expensive property?
Subsidised to live somewhere, sure, but there are parts of London where the housing subsidy alone to a family will be more than median household income for the country as a whole.
It\’s still £20k a year as the upper limit. Seriously, why should the taxpayers be putting their hands that deep in their pockets?
