But the money for water bills goes to private water companies NOT the treasury. Vacant bedrooms would be very hard to monitor - what if a bedroom was vacant 50% of the time and how do you monitor that ? What about very large houses with fewer bedrooms - they would avoid some tax. What about retired couples that have vacant bedrooms because their children have left home - should they effectively have to sell up because of the vacant bedroom tax ? What about people like me that have their children to stay every other weekend due to divorce - I can hardly rent out their bedrooms can I ? Would people like me have to pay this vacant bedroom tax.
At least with a swimming pool tax it's easy - do you have one or not ? If you don't like or can't afford the tax then fill it in.

I know, it's just that you were changing it for houses just under £1m.
Yeah, ******* foreigners. What have they ever done for us.A lot of the purchases over £ 1m are from foreigners, Chinese, Indian , Russian so lets get some dosh out of them, they can afford it.
