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.

The problem with social housing in the UK.

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.

Social Housing in the UK.

I know several young girls who have got pregnant in my area to get a free social housing flat. The councils always give them a flat even though most of them have never worked or paid taxes. Most of these young women really want a house so they keep getting pregnant and producing kids until the council gives them a free house.

I also know several men who have played the homeless card often going to live in a homeless hostel so they jump the council waiting lists. Their possesions are often kept at relatives homes while they trick the system.

Once these people get free social housing they never work because they get their full rents and council taxes paid.

I think the social housing points systtem needs changing so that working people and married people get top priority it is too easy to cheat the present system. Those people who are unemployed and are given free flats should only get 90 percent of their rents paid by Housing benefit they should be made to pay some rent money out of their JSA. This would make life harder on the dole and act as an incentive to get a job.

I am currently unemployed and only get £80 a month towards my mortgage interest, yet those in free council flats are getting over £200 a month rents paid by housing benefit. At the other extreme we have Somali families homed in luxury homes in Londonistan getting rents of over £100,000 a year paid plus loads in benefits for their children. In Afriaca families all share just one room and don’t live in luxury homes. It is no wonder our country has seen an influx of foreign invaders playing the asylum card. Most of these asylum seekers have passed through safe lands and therefore are not eligible to claim asylum here.

If we are going to give asylum seekers free social housing it should be in areas of the country that have cheaper rents like Liverpool we should not be homing them in inner Londonistan.

How is social housing paid for? The Governement give taxpayers money to the councils. The councils then move this money from one department to another eg housing benefit to pay the rents of the freeloaders. By homing none working people the councils are not getting any money from rent to build more social housing.

The scandal of large families in the UK.

Just today on the bus I overheard a converstion. A 22 year old young women who had 5 children expected the Council to house her and her brood in a 3 storey home. Her boyfriend lived in another flat probably so she could get maximum child and housing benefits. Why should we home people in bigger homes than they could ever get if they got a mortgage? These chavs don’t even have basic skills to do a manual job that would bring in the minimum wage.

All over the UK Housing benefit is suplimenting the rent on large families who have been moved into large homes bigger than they could get if they got a mortgage. A lot of these families are asylum seekers from Africa and other 3rd world countries who in reality where just economic migrants.

The reality is those people who work and pay a mortgage are supplimenting the rents of those who have been given these large homes often in too expensive areas.

Why taxpayers are not up in arms and writing to their M.P’s I don’t know.

No political party seems brave enough to cap Child benefits to 2 children, to stop the abuse of couples living apart to maximise benefits or cap the amount of housing benefit paid to £15K a year.

Make Britain Great again.

In the UK we have a welfare system that favours single parenting. No wonder we have the biggest amount of single mums compared to any other European countries. Some of these single mothers have partners living with them but the local councils never check on who is living in social housing. Some council houses are even being sub-let.

Our Prison system is too soft. We should not give Prisoners TV’s, porn mags, Gyms and Pool tables. Prison should be a harsh punishmen with porridge for breakfast. Any murderer or Rapist who does not learn from his time in prison and goes on to commit another murder or rape should be hanged. Hanging is 100 percent sucessful as they can’t commit more crimes.

The immigration system is a shambles as a result of us being in the EU who want to destroy nations and cultures by unlimited immgration. We should pull out of international rights to grant asylum as we are full up. Most asylum seekers are just economic migrants who come here because the UK gives Asylum seekers so much in welfare.

Our Social Housing system is a joke with none workers like single mums jumping the housing lists. We should not pay unemployed people in social housing their full rents as this results in dependancy on welfare. We should make them pay some of thier rents out of JSA.

Net immigration to the UK 250,000 immigrants per year.

Net immigration over the last decade to the UK has been running at over 250,000 immigrants per year. Many of these immigrants are from countries that are outside the EU. Immigration has led to overcrowded schools where often English children are being taught in classes where most of the other pupils have English as a second language. Immigration has meant more houses have to be built on flood plains and has led to worter shortages already. A demographic fact is that immigrants also tend to have more children than English families. What will happen when all these immigrants grow old? – how will the NHS cope?, we already let foreigners fly in and have free treatment. Why is the Government failing to remove all the illegal migrants from the UK. Most Asylum saeekers are just economic migrants who come here because they get free housing and welfare which they don’t get back in their home countries. The international law on refugees says asylum seekers must seek asylum in the first safe country they enter yet we allow them to make claim after claim in the UK until they are sucessful often by citing their right to a family life or human rights etc. Only the lawyers are laughing as they are making a fortune from legal aid defending asylum cases.

We have Irish Pikies stealing metal or fleecing old people out of their savings after doind a dodgy tarmac job on their drives. We have Romanian pickpockets and organised gangs copying credit card details.

Why have we allowed so many Turks to settle in the UK? Why do we allow Pakistanis to go abroad to get a wife – we have plenty of Pakistani’s in the UK. I see a future where there is a civil war in England between the increasing Muslim population and the English. Muslims call for Sharia law if they want this why don’t they go and live under it in Saudi Arabia instead of trying to change the UK. Saudi would not allow Christian churches to be built so why do we allow Mulims to buy out pubs and tunr them into Mosques.
