The bedroom tax has been labelled a policy blunder.  In this event, we ask why it was a blunder and how it became a key site of political contestation as well as popular protest.  By looking at the issue from different perspectives – housing, policy, and legal – we can explore how, so far, that policy blunder has managed to survive.  Join us as we ask questions about challenging such blunders and the types of strategies which have been used, whether successful or unsuccessful.
