Top secret

Home Office Joint Tenancy Agreement

THE DOCUMENT THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO SEE:

Special report

“We know they’re going to move asylum seekers in there. All the flats have been done up, central heating, the works. And they’ve put up brand new net curtains. That’s a sure sign.”

This is the kind of message that we have been hearing from angry locals all over Britain for the last couple of years. Many of the details change, but the total renovations and the highly visible net curtains crop up time and time again.

So too do the denials by local councils that the premises concerned are going to house asylum seekers. And almost as regular is the spectacle of those same councils being forced to eat their words within weeks as local residents wake up to find that new neighbours from Albania and Somalia have been moved in overnight.

The repetition of this pattern over the entire country has been something of a mystery up until now. Strangest of all has been the sight of so many councils telling lies to local residents and newspapers alike, even though the bureaucrats and local councillors telling the lies must know that they will be exposed and discredited within weeks.

Secret Tenancy Agreement

The answers to this puzzle lies in a secret 26-page document – the Revised Tenancy Agreement April 2001 – produced by the Secretary of State for the Home Office, acting through the Immigration and Nationality Directorate. Its very existence is supposed to be secret, Section 3 (p), on page 8 has this warning for people or companies thinking of making money out of housing asylum seekers:

“The Landlord’s attention is drawn to the Official Secrets Acts 1911-1989. The landlord shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that all individuals engaged on any work in connection with this Agreement have notice that these statutory provisions apply to them and shall continue to apply after the expiry or termination of the Term.”

I don’t know whether there is anything to make a reader who is not planning to be a signatory to the document subject to the provisions of the Official Secrets Act. I don’t know, and I don’t care. This document is so shocking that the truth about it has to be told. All I will say is that this article is published here – solely on my authority, so if some Home Office legal bigwigs wants to prosecute over this shockingly democratic breach of their veil of secrecy, they know where to find me.

The anti-free speech restrictions continue on page 9, although by this time the section numbers seem to have become somewhat confused and very unclear. The actual meaning of Section (a) (iii), however, is all too clear:

“The Landlord shall ensure that no press release or other public document containing Confidential Information is issued and shall not make any public statement concerning Confidential Information without the prior written approval of the Directorate and the Tenant Company as to its content and the manner and extent of its publication.”

This is the answer to one key asylum mystery. This is why local councils and private companies alike, which are providing accommodation for ‘refugees’, continually refuse to comment or lie about their role in housing asylum seekers. Once they’ve signed up to this Agreement, they simply don’t have a choice.

Detailed list of items for asylum seekers

So what doesn’t the Home Office want you to know? Take a look at Schedule 1 on page 14, and you can see for yourself:

This list of requirements for any property being used to house asylum seekers begins, reasonably enough, by insisting that it shall be fit for human habitation, and have adequate light. Let us ignore the fact that many hundreds of thousands of our own people are either homeless or live in houses which are “unfit for human habitation” because, according to central government and local councils, there “isn’t enough money to deal with all the problems.”

By the time we get to Section 1.3, the secret Agreement begins to lay out requirements which are beyond the reach not just of a relatively small number of the homeless or desperately poor:

“… all meters shall be of the quarterly type, the use of card or key meters shall not be allowed.”

Isn’t that nice? If you and your family fall into arrears on your utility bills, particularly electricity, you have to agree to the installation of a card meter set at such a rate that it gobbles up money. British families with children can’t be officially cut off – but if they run out of meter credit, their lights and heating go off anyway and they have to go to bed at dusk in the winter to try to keep warm. Such hardships are unacceptable, however, when it comes to asylum seekers.

Section 1.7 insists that “The Property shall have a full and safe central heating system installed. Paraffin or bottled gas fed heating systems shall not be used.” Perish the thought! Such devices are fine for British pensioners and young families shivering on the poverty line, but far too smelly, inconvenient and dangerous for the liberal elite’s favourites.

New electrical goods

After laying down requirements on issues such as fire safety, the Schedule reaches Point 10: “All electrical appliances in the Property shall be either new or, if second hand, shall be supplied complete with a twelve month guarantee.” Well, I don’t know about you, but when my wife and I got married and set up home, we had to get our first electric cooker and heaters from an auction, completely without any guarantee at all. And, of course, ordinary British youngsters moving into places of their own still face the same choice between paying through the nose for new equipment or going without guarantees.

Pages 15 and 16 go on to provide a long list of the things needed in the kitchen, living room, bedrooms and bathroom of each asylum property. As you’re probably expecting by now, this features everything from chip pans to teaspoons, from an easy chair for each bed space to a Boots first aid kit.

The long ‘General’ list in Section 1.13 even proves that the popular observation about new net curtains showing that asylum seekers are moving in is true, since landlords are ordered to provide “net & drawable curtains to all living rooms and bedrooms.” They get everything, in fact, including the kitchen sink.

Free colour TV and licence paid!

One item does, however, stand out:

“For Each Living/Dining Room

1 new twenty inch screen colour television complete with licence which shall be renewed at each annual anniversary of the Start Date throughout the Term.”

Native Brits, of course, have to wait until they are 75 to get a free TV licence, and non-payment of this iniquitous tax is the biggest single ‘crime’ that puts British women in prison.

Many of those women can’t afford a TV licence because they are struggling to bring up young families on pitifully low incomes. As a result, they are also often unable to afford proper child safety equipment. No wonder, then, that the Home Office bureaucrats being so generous with our tax money wanted to keep Section 1.20 secret:

“Where there are to be children living in the Property, the Property shall include:

* Adequate cot and highchair facilities;
* Appropriate sterilisation equipment;
* Child safety gates on all stairways;
* Childproof resistant devices or casement stays on all windows;
* Appropriate play areas both inside and outside the Property.”

Another thing that ordinary families on average incomes find a big problem is the occasional cost of major repairs. Asylum seekers have no such worries. Under this Agreement, the Landlord is bound to do all repairs within seven days, and to provide an emergency repair service (Section 1.23) “where a threat to health and safety is apparent.” The rest of us have to turn to Yellow Pages or pay for call out insurance, but it would be unfair to expect asylum seekers to do the same, wouldn’t it?

Similarly favourable treatment is also specified in the Letting Provisions, Section (f) of which commits the Landlord “to redecorate all parts of the Property in the third year of the Term.” The rest of us may have to fork out down at “Do It All”, but not the special guests.

Perhaps most ludicrous of all, however, is the next section (g) of the Letting Provisions, whereby the Landlord agrees: “To have the exterior of all windows of the Property cleaned once every twelve weeks.” I kid you not, it’s there on page 7. What would George Formby have had to say about it?

Who pays?

So what do all these modcons and services cost the lucky occupants of such premises? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. When various bleeding heart liberals tell us how asylum seekers only get basic income support payments, they don’t tell us about the Letting Provisions on page 4 of the Home Office’s Revised Tenancy Agreement, do they? Yet these show that not only do asylum seekers get their TV licences paid for them, we also pick up the tab for their rent, water rates, gas, and electricity bills.

Surely, you must think, these people must want to spend night after night on the phone to all their friends and family back home, telling them all about the wonders of Soft Touch Britain? A lot of their pocket money must go on paying the phone bill? No, as you probably guessed, they don’t have to pay a penny. Section 1 ((b) of the Letting Provisions sets out the fact that the Tenant Company (funded by the taxpayer) agrees to pick up the phone bill for every single property provided by the Landlord in question to asylum seekers.

Don’t forget that every single council or housing association in this land which is housing asylum seekers has signed this document. Thousands of councillors in the ruling party in Labour, LibDem and Tory councils alike have either read this document or studiously avoided seeing it so they didn’t have to.

It only took one person in one council to leak this insulting and undemocratic document for the truth to be known.

Hang judges for treason.

HUMAN rights judges sparked outrage yesterday when they ordered Britain to hand a dangerous immigrant rapist £1,200 compensation. He won the payout because of a red tape error over keeping him behind bars as the Home Office tries to kick him out. Mustafa Abdi, 38, has already cost the country nearly £700,000 in prison costs and legal aid. He came to Britain from Somalia in 1995 and in 1998 he was convicted of rape and indecency with a child and jailed. He served five years but then instead of being freed he was kept in prison as a danger to the public while successive Home Secretaries tried to deport him. For 10 years Abdi managed to stay by repeatedly challenging deportation orders and filing new asylum claims.Now in a ruling that will infuriate British taxpayers, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg has said the UK Government breached his human rights between December 2004 and April 2007 because officials did not carry out the right number of reviews of his detention.


BRITAIN‘S “farcical” human rights laws came under fire again last night after a convicted Iraqi drug dealer dodged deportation because he has a British girlfriend. Hesham Mohammed Ali, who abandoned his two children by different mothers, successfully argued that being sent back to Iraq would breach his “right to a family life”. Asylum seeker Ali, 36, won his appeal against Home Secretary Theresa May after claiming he had a “genuine” relationship with London beautician Cy Harwood, 31. He also claimed his life could be in danger in Iraq because he has tattoos, including one of a half-naked woman. Thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money have now been spent trying to deport Ali, who was smuggled into Britain in 2000 and has never been in the country legally.


MPs angrily condemned the ruling as another example of a criminal exploiting the European Convention on Human Rights to stay in Britain. Conservative Priti Patel said: “This case has shown that the controversial Article 8 – ‘the right to a family’ life – is an utter farce. The law should be clear, if you commit a crime you will be deported. “The British public look to British laws to deport foreign criminals who are in the UK. With human rights laws demolishing Britain’s justice and immigration controls, we need urgent changes to the way it affects our ability to deport these dreadful criminals who go out of their way to undermine the British way of life.”

Good news

The European Court of Human Rights has given its final approval for the extradition of five major terrorism suspects from the UK to the US.

The court’s highest judges said they would not re-open the cases of Abu Hamza al-Masri, Babar Ahmad and others.

The decision means that the extradition of the men, wanted for years by the US, is likely to happen within weeks.

The Home Office welcomed the decision, saying it would ensure the extraditions happen as quickly as possible.

Each man had said they would face inhumane treatment in the United States if they were sent there.

Abu Hamza is accused of planning a terror training camp in the US and assisting hostage-taking in Yemen.

The US says that Babar Ahmad and his co-accused, Syed Talha Ahsan, ran a jihadist website in London that provided material support for terrorism.

Adel Abdul Bary, Khaled Al Fawwaz are accused of being aides to Osama bin Laden in London.

In a statement, the Strasbourg court said: “On 10 April 2012 the European Court of Human Rights held, in the case of Babar Ahmad and Others v. the United Kingdom, that there would be no violation of the applicants’ rights if extradited to stand trial in the United States.

Olympic athletes claim asylum in UK.

Four members of Congo’s Olympic team were said to have gone missing in London yesterday as thousands of their fellow London 2012 athletes and officials flew home.

Their disappearance took the number of African athletes and delegates attending London 2012 who have vanished from their camps or sought political asylum in Britain to 15.

Immigration officials expect that number to increase sharply when athletes’ special London 2012 visas expire in November.

Details of the apparent Congo defections came as it emerged that at least five members of the Cameroon team have pleaded to be allowed to stay in Britain rather than returning with teammates yesterday.

The Home Office refused to say whether the five, all boxers, were seeking asylum.

Two members of the Sudanese team and one Ethiopian are reported to have sought asylum in the UK, one Sudanese is missing, and two other members of the Cameroon team – a swimmer and a female footballer – have also disappeared after suddenly vanishing from the Olympic Village.

Immigration shambles in the UK

Yesterday, yet again, we saw headline news being made by a shocking  tale of incompetence and mismanagement by the UK Border Agency, the body set up in 2008 to control immigration to this country.

The backlog of cases piled up in the agency’s labyrinthine system, we are told, amounts to 276,000, equivalent to the population of Newcastle. Most of the migrants are here illegally and should have been sent home years ago.

They include 150,000 foreign workers and students still in Britain even though they were refused extensions to their visas; 101,000 untraced ‘asylum seekers’ left over from when 450,000 ‘forgotten files’ were discovered in 2005; and 3,900 foreign offenders released by the courts to protect their human rights.

Keith Vaz MP, chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, calls the Border Agency ‘a Bermuda triangle’ for immigrants who find it easy enough to get into Britain from anywhere in the world, but then vanish off the radar because there is no way of tracing them, let alone deporting them because they entered illegally or have broken our laws.

Scandals surrounding our immigration policy are so commonplace that we all accept it is completely out  of control.

MPs like Mr Vaz — whose committee is so exasperated it is now reporting on the Border Agency’s performance every three months — regularly jump up and down asking for something to be done.

The fall of empires.

Empires tend to collaspe because they invent sysyems that act detrimental to the empire this is one of the reasons Rome fell.

In Britain we have the following systems destroying our country.

Granting Asylum to every economic migrant who has passed through safe lands.

A welfare system that encourages the feckless and freeloaders especially single mothers and large families.

A housing system that can be bypassed by saying you are homeless you get a free council home.

A data protection act that stops the DHSS investigating fraud and job applications by the unemployed.

Tax loopholes including off shore banking.

A country ruined by being a member of the EU who has never had an account passed. We have lost our fishing industry etc

The EU costs us millions of pounds per day and we have had to bail out Ireland and Greece who should have never been allowed to join the Euro.

Teachers who can’t remove bad pupils from class rooms.

A welfare system that rewards single mothers with free flats and large freeloading families with free large council homes.

A system where everybody who works with a mortgage is taxed to pay for civil servants pensions and taxed to pay the rents and council taxes of dole freeloaders.

A country that pays foreign aid to our enemy’s and countrys that don’t need our money. We should put the English first and stop all foreign aid and fighting wars on foreign soil.

International law says that refugees must seek asylum in the first safe country they enter. Yet we allow illegal immigrants to enter the UK and when they are caught they claim asylum. The Home Office wants to deport the illegal immigrants but the immigrants often get a friendly judge who argues they should have the right to remain because of their human rights. We need to sack these judges who are destroying the UK.
