It doesn't really work as an analogy I think. I mean, you wouldn't force someone to pay back the cost of a hand operation because it opened up a career as a truck driver.
Typical Sun as well, paying for her to get her kit off and then implicitly trashing her for doing so.

What I find strange is the rumor I was told by a Brit friend of mine about social housing tenants will shortly have to pay $35.00 tax a month on empty bedrooms?
I am losing the plot with this one...
IT'S NOT A TAX!!!!!!!!!! IT IS REDUCTION IN HOUSING BENEFIT FOR THOSE IN RECEIPT OF TAXPAYER MONEY TO PAY THEIR RENT WHO HAVE AN EXTRA BEDROOM!
WHY SHOULD THE TAXPAYER FUND PEOPLE TO HAVE HOUSES BIGGER THAN THEY NEED WHEN THOSE WHO DO PAY FOR THEIR HOUSING HAVE TROUBLE AFFORDING IT?edit on 25/3/13 by stumason because: (no reason given)
