Housing Benefit 'Cuts'

The Daily Telegraph reports that "thousands could be evicted because of 80 per cent cut to housing benefit". The report continues "Department for Work and Pensions figures show that 5,170 people currently receive more than £400 a week in housing benefit to help pay rent to private landlords."

The immediate question is: one wonders how many of the 5,170 people constitute those of which this story is an example?

Before howls of racism descend - just asking.............
