It seems from a recent report in the Daily Mail that local authorities, mostly Labour ones, are confirming that which many people in these authorities have long suspected, that foreigners, especially scrounging ones, are being prioritised for public sector housing.
So desperate are these Left Wing councils to avoid their policies being exposed to public view that they are refusing to supply figures showing just how many foreigners are occupying public sector housing.
The Daily Mail reports:
“Councils are trying to cover up the number of taxpayer-subsidised homes they are handing to foreigners, it was claimed yesterday.
Local authorities have stopped giving figures for how many houses and flats they have given to foreign citizens amid rising worries over the impacts of immigration, a report said.
Councils in London, where one in five publicly-financed homes are already known to be occupied by foreigners, are among those no longer supplying the figures.
Now MPs have called for an inquiry into the suppression of information on who gets council and housing association homes.
Labour’s Frank Field and Tory Nicholas Soames said in a statement on behalf of the cross-party Balanced Migration group: ‘This is a huge issue for many people.
‘The Government must now launch a full inquiry into what is going on in the allocation of social housing in London.’
The way subsidised homes have been going to foreign citizens and not to families with long-standing local connections has become politically sensitive as immigration hits record levels and the recession has undermined ordinary people’s ability to afford to buy or rent private homes.”
Being familiar with some of these dodgy London Labour one party states, such an action doesn’t surprise me. In one particular borough where I’ve talked to former and current residents, Newham, it seems that a British person getting a council property is so unusual that it is remarked on. Also in that same borough there are rumours that the good quality council housing is prioritised for members of certain religions, and the bad stuff is reserved for the British. Having read this article such rumours, sadly, look more and more likely to be true.
The Daily Mail report quotes from a study by Migrationwatch, the balanced migration pressure group, that found that 1 in 5 social housing units in London were occupied by foreigners and not native born British people.
The Mail quoting Migrationwatch said:
“The way subsidised homes have been going to foreign citizens and not to families with long-standing local connections has become politically sensitive as immigration hits record levels and the recession has undermined ordinary people’s ability to afford to buy or rent private homes.”
The report from the Migrationwatch think tank said that local authorities in London are now disclosing the nationality of new tenants for fewer than half the homes they let.
Four authorities – Greenwich, Hackney, Lambeth and Newham – have declined to take part in the Government’s count of social housing lettings even though it is a legal requirement for them to do so.
Two more councils, Ealing and Haringey, where there are high numbers of foreign citizens in social housing, have obscured their latest figures by claiming high numbers of tenants refuse to say what their nationality is.
The report said that since waiting lists for social housing are ten times longer than the number of homes made available each year, only a small proportion of families that ask will ever get a house from a council or a housing association.”
Unfortunately it doesn’t surprise me to see oppressive and discriminatory Labour shitholes refusing to disclose just how many foreigners are being given public housing. Being familiar with such places, and seeing just how badly they treat the indigenous population, who paid for these houses over many years through taxation, sadly doesn’t surprise me.
The Labour party are many things, but they have proved themselves to be disloyal to the working classes who mistakenly supported them for decades. If people want this situation changed then such change will not come from voting Labour. Labour have caused these problems, sometimes deliberately, and need to be punished for their misdeeds at the ballot box.
