I know several single mums who have got a free council flat by just getting pregnant. I know several men who have said they are “homeless” and jump the waiting lists and are given a free council flat. What most of these people have in common is they don’t work so that the Council pays their full rent from Housing benefit. The council also does free plumbing and fixes their boilers for free. Somebody is paying for this|! Basically the Government give some of taxpayers money to the local Councils. One department in the council then pays the Housing Benefit into the Rent department for that tenant. This means that taxpayers with mortgages are subsidizing the freeloading lifestyles of social housing tenants.
The problem is even worse with large families they are given a bigger house than they could ever get if they got a job and a mortgage, most are so unskilled that they could only do manual warehouse work etc.
New immigrant families have been homed in very luxury homes in Londonistan with Housing Benefit up to £100K a year paid. Could they really get a job that would pay the rent? Are our Councils so afraid of being labelled racists if they don’t home the immigrants in luxury homes. Asylum seekers are getting free TV licence, free telephone calls back home, fully fitted homes and a winter fuel allowance. Back in the countries where these immigrants come from all the family would sleep in just one room. Why must we give them 7 bedroom homes? Most are just economic migrants who come here because they can’t get welfare in their home countries. It is no wonder we have 250,000 immigrants coming to the UK each year when we treat them so well.
We must stop giving Asylum. We must also stop foreign Aid. We should also change the points system on social housing so that those who have worked and paid taxes are put first. Child benefits should be limited to just 2 children and social housing to just 3 bedrooms.
