Is that according to your ever reliable sources of information then Z-11? ie: plucked out of the air? Or from some bizarre uber-right wing website nobody has ever heard of?

Wigan and Leigh Housing, the arm's length company which manages 22,000 social housing properties on behalf of Wigan council, says the 'bedroom tax' will not produce savings to the public purse in the region it serves.
"With some 4,500 tenants affected and little social housing stock available it means it is inevitable households will be forced to move into the more expensive private rented sector," says Ashley Crumbley, chief executive of Wigan and Leigh Housing.
Mr Crumbley estimates the welfare bill could go up by £500,000 per year in Wigan, as tenants moving into private accommodation may be able to claim far more in benefits than they currently receive.
The problem is not confined to Wigan, nor the north of England.
