Stalked rape victim forced to pay bedroom tax on secure room installed by police

(not satire – it’s the UK today)

A woman who has been raped, assaulted, harassed and stalked by an ex-partner has been told by the government that she has to pay the bedroom tax on a secure room installed by the police to protect her and her son from the violent stalker.
The woman’s lawyers are challenging the decision in the high court.
But – of course – callous government ministers are fighting her every step of the way:

I wonder if there are any Conservative and Liberal Democrat supporters who feel even a twinge of guilt that their leaders are supporting rapists and violent criminals in court against their victims?
