    Immigrants given preference over squaddies for council housing

    MORE than one in eight of all council houses for young adults are now *occupied by foreigners.



    A Government report showed people born abroad take up 12.6% of properties that have 16 to 40-year-olds living in them.


    For all age groups, immigrants live in one in 12 of all “social houses”, *affordable rented homes provided by councils or housing associations.

    The figures have been released a month after we reported the problems that Brit squaddies returning from Afghanistan have getting a roof over their families’ heads.


    And asylum seekers living in *million-pound properties have sparked fury across the country.


    In 2008, the Equalities and Human Rights Commission, along with the Local Government Association, *issued a report claiming just 2% of social housing was taken up by *foreigners who had arrived in the UK within the past five years.


    However, yesterday’s report, the 2008-09 English Housing Survey from the Department Of Communities And Local Government, proves those *figures were wrong, campaigners Migrationwatch UK said last night.


    The group’s chairman, Sir Andrew Green, said: “This finally destroys the myth that less than 2% of council and housing association tenants are recent immigrants.”



    The issue of foreigners taking up places on council house waiting lists has been credited as one of the main reasons behind the success of BNP candidates at recent elections.


    Earlier this year we revealed *Somali Abdi Nur, 42, and his seven *children had been handed the keys to a £2.1million house in west London.


    And single mum-of-seven Toorpakai Saeidi, from Afghanistan, costs the state £12,458 a month in housing benefit for her £1.2m home, also in west London.


    In August we told how thousands of East Europeans are jumping council house queues after arriving here. Last year 4,000 local authority homes were given to people from abroad.


    Speaking at the time, Housing *Minister Grant Shapps said: “It causes a great deal of concern and is problematic for social cohesion when people who have lived in an area for a long time aren’t given preference.”


    Meanwhile, hero squaddie Craig Barker, 26, complained he was turned down for a council house *because he had “moved away” from his home town Bracknell, Berks, to go to war.


    L/Cpl Barker told us: “The council has let us down from the start.”

    ....

    Daily Star: Simply The Best 7 Days A Week :: News :: Immigrants blag one out of eight council houses!

    I hope something good comes out of the 'controversial' housing benefit cap Cameron is proposing... It'll kick out those immigrants who live in mansions for a start!

    Too many in OUR country are living in houses they wouldn't be able to afford if they were working, so why the hell should they live there... I wouldn't get one, that's for sure!

    I know the worst off in this are Londoner's because the rents are so ridiculous... But how many nowadays are TRUE Londoner's??? I feel very sorry for the true London people who've lived in their homes forever and may be forced out...

    Then... Look at most of the Landlords in London who own their properties. How many of THEM are Indigenous British folk???

    Watch Homes under the Hammer, when they feature a property in London. None of the buyers I've seen so far are Native Brits... And ALL of them equally greedy. As if London isn't expensive enough as it is...

    If immigrants lose their homes and have to live on the streets and they cant support themselves because of this move by Cameron, they should be kicked out of OUR country!

    Re: Immigrants given preference over squaddies for council housing

    Despite the fact that, the government will not even allowed the dissable ones among the immigrant to have a job, they still want to cut house benefit, but in ireland it's different really, a single immigrant is not qualified for council house unless they're couple or single parents, or about to start breeding otherwise no council house for single unless you're an irish citizen, well i think the british housing sector obey the laws on evictions rather than repossessions anyways, beware they may use scouter laws against you!

    So how much is the council house rent that, they can not work and pay for less than £50.00 pounds a week with no housing benefit is it ?

    I know. The chattering classes who celebrate diversity and the multicultural dream, loved our multi ethnic neighbourhoods so much that they left for the home counties. The hipocrisy of it all is staggering.
