On Friday NCC LOLs posted a blog post giving some thoughts on the Bedroom Tax and Nottingham City Council’s response to it. This included mentioning the petition they’ve started and encouraging readers to sign it, but adding “Just please make sure you sign all the others too.”
The link is to a simple Google search of “bedroom tax petition” but immediately on its loading you can see there really are quite a few different petitions going. I personally don’t think petition-signing is going to stop the Bedroom Tax; but it might form part of a campaign against it by demonstrating how many people are against it, alongside all the other measures we need to take. But wouldn’t it be best if we took NCC LOLs’ advice and signed all of them, rather than just one?
So I have done the work of collecting the URLs and website names here for you; you can just click each of them and sign. Should take 15 minutes.
