"Good morning, what a relief it was to see your leaflet come through my letterbox. Thank you." It has not been often that we get that response to the campaigning work we do.

The email continues; "I work 18 hours and claim a percentage of housing benefit...I have my two children at weekends so need the second bedroom...the way I see it is that I'm trying to work even though its only part time, what with the job situation and do not want to be sat at home, but still the government make it harder and risk splitting me from my children".

This is just one of thousands of stories we have encountered when out leafleting in Leeds against the Bedroom Tax.
