Cat. Bag. Absolutely No Chance Of Any Reassembly Now!

It has been a long-term rumour overcrowded London councils were moving people on their housing lists into cheaper accommodation in Essex, but Newham’s response is the FIRST admission it has been going on.

Oh, indeed!

But did anyone ever really believe their protestations that this wasn’t going on anyway? I mean, consider the source…

It insisted Thurrock Council was notified in writing of each placement.

But furious Thurrock bosses said the Gazette had alerted them to the issue and maintained they had been oblivious to any Newham tenants being housed here.

Hmmm, really? I know local councils can be stunningly inefficient, but, even so, did they really not notice?

Did they miss the sudden expansion of dubious ‘Internet cafes’, the rise in nail & hair shops, the gradual inclusion of rather more exotic items on supermarket shelves?

And now they’ve been rumbled, are they going to stop?

Reader, they are not…

Newham is working with eight other landlords in Southend and Basildon where it has housed ten individuals or families.

It warned it will have to send more people into Essex as London boroughs try to shift their own housing crises within the capital.

I can’t wait!

    Stand fast!

    Each council is responsible for its own housing stock.

    They have their own waiting lists….?

    HOW can tennents be sneaked in under the screen?

    Do London councils, in a perverse reversal of “Hostage rescue teams,” install them in the dead of night as squaters, or what?

    I mean, THIS is a GREAT idea!

    We could empty all the Kanaken out of Kreuzberg/Schöneberg/Neukölln/etc over the Christmas holiday, when most council workers are asleep, and instal them in Poland!!

    Game set and match. :grin:

      Perhaps Thurrock council is unaware of this because the landlords are in the private sector?

        Obviously not;

        ” It insisted Thurrock Council was notified in writing of each placement.

        But furious Thurrock bosses said the Gazette had alerted them to the issue and maintained they had been oblivious to any Newham tenants being housed here.”

        If it is private, then they would not be giving a fuck, or?

    How do you think that, the inner London councils freed up housing stock for the great inward migrantion?

    Since the late nineties – London has been a societal enginered experiment. UN agenda 21 at work in London, Labour and Lib dem run administrations designed, facilitated then moved on the inner London white indigenous population, then in their place moved in the new arrivals. If you add in voluntary white flight, plus ex Britannia emigration and you have one of the largest European demographic upheavals and migrations seen since the end of WWII.

    All on the QT and done with collusion of HMG, with first Blair, then Brown and now Cameron’s tacit approval but behind the scenes there are greater forces at work, the mass movement of people has been aided and abetted by the EU and supranational agencies and with the help of foreign governments particularly those of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

    Unworkers should not be housed in zones 1-4.

    Bring this in, and London will suddenly look like England again.

    Thurrock is not the only other destination for Newham’s poor.

    Young single mothers housed only recently by Newham council in a special purpose-built unit with professional support might now be moving to Manchester, Birmingham and Hastings — far away from family and friends. One awaits future news items about so-called ‘errant slappers’ — sample phrase (not one I would necessarily agree with) — who have nowhere else to go but into a life of vice or crime in desperation:

    All this is because, as Sunday Politics (BBC) explained several weeks ago, Newham prefers to now spend money on a new surveillance scheme for council workers which pinpoints employees wherever they go during the day at work (e.g. loo, cars).

    Oh, yes, money well spent. :roll:
