Later today (13th March 2014) the council tax protester Ross Longhurst, well known for his Robin Hood hat when he is protesting against the Council Tax is due in Magistrates Court over non-payment of council tax.
Last night the spokes person for Scrap the Bedroom Tax, Defend Council Tax Benefits Campaign made this statement.
many people are being forced to choose between food, heating and paying bills because of attacks on Council Tax Support and Bedroom Tax and we give support to anyone who cannot pay the council tax who is now being asked to pay. We are giving advice to people on a case by case basis.
We give solidarity to Ross Longhurst who feels so disgusted by the attacks on benefits that he is making a stand.
