News that the UK economy grew by 1.9% in 2013 has given thousands of bedroom tax victims plenty of cause for celebration.
'I'd crack open a bottle of champagne if I could afford it,' said Lisa Williams (59) from Salford who is about to be evicted from her home of thirty-years because she can no longer afford the rent. 'It's even better news than the last inflation figures when I couldn't sleep for the excitement.'
And Albert Whitlock (58) from Blackpool said that although he's disabled and having to move house because he's deemed to have a bedroom too many, agreed.
'This is better than the Housing Start figures, which were pretty good,' he said. 'It's bloody great to know George Osborne's long-term economic plan is working.
'Now I can't wait for the bankers' bonus figures. That'll be the icing on the cake for me.'
