NO DSS makes no economic sense sign now

Advertisement

"A two bedroom semi detached house benefiting from gas central heating and UPVC double glazing. Entrance Hall, Lounge, Kitchen Diner, two Bedrooms, Bathroom, Off Road Parking and Front & Rear Garden. SORRY NO DHSS"

The above advertisement was taken from an Internet letting agency website. Similarly worded advertisements—No DSS (Department of Social Security claimants–recipients of state welfare)—appear daily in regional and national newspapers. If they are considered ‘legal’, then the author of this item considers this is contrary to established law relating to discrimination.

If a similar advertisement appeared in print stating ‘No Blacks’ or ‘No Pakistani’s, or ‘no single parents’ or even ‘no gays’ then the publisher would most certainly be faced with prosecution for permitting the publication of discriminatory advertisements.

However, many people in receipt of DSS allowances are not simply just out of work, they are in receipt of disability and incapacity allowances. And in their cases, advertisements that state ‘no DSS’ are actively discriminating against their status as disabled people. And what about people in receipt of state pensions?


Importantly, many people struggling to make a living receive (in the UK) Family Tax Credits—an income supplement, which also entitles them to housing benefit and council tax benefits. These people are all too often tarred with the brush of receiving DSS. Is this a JUST AND FAIR SYSTEM? please sign this petition to stop landlords discriminating people on benefits. thankyou
