I enjoyed reading the inspirational story of the Clay Cross councillors (M Star November 6).
The so-called Bedroom Tax - effectively a tax on households that have a "spare" bedroom - is going to be implemented next year, which will affect 670,000 tenants in social housing around the country.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could see local councils, which still have influence over housing, refusing to implement this callous piece of social engineering.
Of course the lesson from Clay Cross is that it is not enough for a small group of people to bravely take on the government alone. It needs a concerted campaign of trade unions, community groups, social landlords and the Labour Party to oppose this attack on working people nationally.
