Wellingborough Tory councillor resigns over bedroom tax

From the Northamptonshire Telegraph:
A Tory councillor has resigned from the Conservative Party over its ‘unfair’ and ‘discriminative’ so-called bedroom tax policy. 
Wellingborough councillor Barbara Ainge stood down from the borough’s Conservative Party last week due to her concerns over the policy, which affects people in council and social housing whose homes are deemed to be under-occupied and who will have their housing benefit reduced unless they move to a smaller property.
