spare rooms?

just wondering how many of the tory members of parliament have second homes that have spare rooms?
after all they are being paid by the taxpayer - but i guess they are not scroungers.

as part of the bedroom tax i am pretty sure i heard a tory mp try to defend the policy by saying there is a lack of social housing (i wonder who put a stop to social housing?) so what needs to happen is those who have spare rooms move into smaller places.
of course this seems to take no account of the fact that there seems to be a lack of social housing.

so a little like making work pay - it is an idea that falls down based on the fact that there are not enough jobs or socaial housing to make the policy work.

who would have thought that a tory policy would be more about 'punishment' than cure.
