What happens when you tax people who have nothing?
Rev Paul Nicolson founder of TaxPayersAgainstPoverty.org campaigns for those well under the ‘just about managing’ line.
He will talk about families suffering the combined effect of welfare cuts and bedroom tax; the benefit cap; how Job Centres now hand out sanctions and have become harsher than the Magistrates’ Courts! and new efforts to deliver affordable housing through a Community Land Trust. When Rev Nicolson wanted to highlight unjust fines for Council Tax arrears he decided to stop paying and has been fighting Haringey Council through the courts since. We are delighted that for the time being he has avoided prison and we are making the most of the opportunity before his next hearing in February!
