UK Immigration, EU Referendum and Britain's Housing Crisis - How to Get a Council House

The reality of Britain's housing crisis can be easily lost in the statistics, which whilst painting a picture of continuing OUT OF CONTROL immigration, one of a building crisis year after year that, instead of net migration numbering in the tens of thousands as David Cameron has been iterating each year since he took power in 2010, instead as the latest data from the ONS once more illustrates, stands at well over 300k per year and trending towards 400k.


"Overall, net immigration would be kept in the tens of thousands, rather than the current rate of hundreds of thousands”. Promised David Cameron in 2010.

Therefore instead of net migration during the past 6 years of 120k to 180k. Instead Britain has experienced a mass uncontrolled net inflow of near 2 million! More than TEN TIMES that which David Cameron keeps promising! Therefore Britain has had to suffer a net 2 million extra hungry mouths to feed, HOUSE and service with ZERO net benefit to the economy due to receipt of in work benefits which are NOT capped at £26k per annum for working tax credit recipients so literally the sky is the limit!

In terms of the impact of out of control EU immigration on the housing market, Channel 4's series 'How to Get a Council House' has done an excellent job of demonstrating the real world impact on the housing crisis, of how the mass migration statistics translate into real world examples of what is taking place right across Britain.

The latest episode to air which is still available online for another 27 days once more demonstrates how out of control EU migration is having a disastrous impact on Britain's housing market. For instance a Romanian family of 7 ( 2 adults and 5 children) is shown arriving into the UK at Hounslow's housing department demanding that they be housed, and after tooing and froing for a couple of weeks for the cameras, are then within 2 weeks housed in a 4 bedroom house in Birmingham at a cost to the tax payer of £750 per month! And in total will likely be in receipt of over £60k in benefits per year! (includes £25k cost for schooling 5 children).

(Channel 4 on Demand - Available online for 27 days)

The episode continues with other recent migrants such including a single adult from Bermuda, who expected to be housed, and a family of 3 from Poland and Africa, again expecting to be housed and granted housing by the end of the episode.

Towards the end of the episode the housing support officer is asked "Do you think they should have been housed", to which he answers -

"I think it's a yes, no answer, it does not always seem fair and in this case I think the verdict will be open, there will be some of you who will think, we'll were glad for them. Others might think here's another case of the system being exploited. "

Whilst the romanian male of the family of 7 is asked "Do you know there is a housing shortage here in Britain?" to which he replies -

"I didn't know that, maybe I was one of the lucky ones"

The episode ends with a dire statement from Hounslow's Director of Housing - "We are seeing an increase in applications from overseas. We do not have the supply, we do not have the homes to put them in. The situation can only get worse and we will expect to see those numbers simply grow and grow."

The reality is apparent that eastern europeans know exactly what they are doing to jump the housing queue so as to achieve what British born people are unable to despite waiting for literally decades on worthless housing waiting lists. So when people say that migrants are being given priority over British people, well it is true for EU migrant families at least, for being HOMELESS WITH CHILDREN, means that they are treated as PRIORITY CASES, which is why the housing waiting lists that British born people have been patiently sat on for 20+ years, waiting to be re-housed are FROZEN. And if Brit's make themselves homeless so as to put pressure on the Council, then the Council tends to turn around and inform them that they cannot be helped because they have INTENTIALLY made themselves homeless! Whilst virtually ALL europeans migrating to Britain WITH children are being given housing within 2-4 weeks, and this is the nature of Britain's decade long building housing crisis that has long since passed the critical point. Against which Vote REMAIN's madness is for an unsustainable business as usual!

I have covered the consequences of out of control immigration on Britain's housing market many times over the past few years as illustrated by the following recent videos:

EU Referendum - VOTE LEAVE

Over the past 18 months of analysis I have come to the firm conclusion that on the balance of probabilities that Britain would be far better off in the long-run by LEAVING to the European Union. Yes, there would be short-term uncertainty and some economic pain, but the price of remaining within the EU will be INFINITELY greater as my articles and videos to date illustrate.

Therefore with just 3 weeks to go and the opinion polls virtually neck and neck on 45%, we have been ramping up our BrExit campaign, producing Brexit resources from in-depth analysis, rebuttal articles, many videos, and also active on the social networks so as to do our best to play a part in Britain in securing Britain's long-term future, Britain's very last chance for freedom which you too can help to achieve by supporting our Brexit campaign.

EU Migratiion Housing Costs

Hi Nadeem,

Further to your awesome article(s) it would be good to interlink the EU memberships actual cost to the UK. The Beeb are churning out their usual propaganda dribble saying that of the £350M/£370M given to the EU each week only £150M or thereabouts is given... then stating is it really worth leaving.., when as you well know the problem isn't just the sum of money we send abroad but the extra money the tax payer has to cough up for the vast number of immigrants being given social housing...

Back in July 2013 it was announced that over the past decade approximately 500,000 immigrants where given social housing, inevitably we do not know how many of these are individuals, couples... have taken up work or how many more have been added since, so for arguments sake lets take the 500K and break it down:

- Single Person - £450p/m Rent - £15kp/a Benefits (x 125,000 = Over £675M per annum)

- Couple - £550p/m - £30kp/a (x 125K = Over £825M)

- Small Family - £650p/m - £50kp/a (x 125K = Over £975M)

- Large Family - £750p/m - £70kp/a (x 125K = Over £1.125B)

Total: £3.6 Billion

The above is understandably a big approximation and may sound rather inflated, however it doesn't include the rents in areas such as London, Greater London and Surrey where many councils are paying 2, 3... 5+ times more to house one family than the above figures or those recently published, it also doesn't highlight the added financial strain on our schools, NHS... but it certainly outlines the fact we are better off out!

Your thoughts?

Kind regards,

Nic
