Somali refugee family given one of Britainís most expensive council houses...
Voice of Europe ^ | 12/28/17

A family of Somali refugees are living in a £2.2m mansion which is thought to be one of Britain’s most expensive council houses.

Muriidi Abati, 57 who earns £7 an hour and his wife Marhan Mohamed, 44, have lived in the Georgian townhouse with their 7 children for 15 years. They are paying only £90pw to Islington Council.

Critics have said it was “ridiculous,” refugees given “a home for millionaires” while many others live in squalor. Refugees can qualify as a priority for housing if local a council deems them “vulnerable,” although this is not listed as a “special reason” category.

A neighbour (asked not to be named) of the Abati family, said he was also a council tenant and his home was worth up to £3m.

John Bickley, United Kingdom Independence Party immigration spokesman said: “Councils have a duty to optimise tax-payers money, and these properties should be sold and the returns invested in affordable social housing that benefits a larger number of residents.”

Meanwhile ordinary Brits struggle to even get a house at all due to the housing crisis.

Why does the local government own a 2-million-ish house to start with?

Ah, but they aren't voting the way the elites want them too.

Ordinary Brits brought about Brexit.

These people will be much more.....appreciative of what the Government gives them.....

should kick them all out. If you do not contribute to the new country , and not an asset to make the country better then get the hell out.

Will The Queen send Prince Harry to these refugees in order to teach them the proper way to use an indoor toilet?

All Western elites are sick in their soul & self-loathing. They also hate you & your family.

Britain is toast!

A Post earlier today told of F1 driver Lewis Hamilton being forced to apologize.

Lewis Hamilton has apologised for making “inappropriate” comments in a video in which he appeared to mock his nephew’s princess dress.

In an Instagram video, which has since been deleted, the Formula 1 driver says “boys don’t wear princess dresses”.

He was criticised on social media for the clip, which was apparently filmed on Christmas Day.

The 32-year-old tweeted his “deepest apologies”, saying he loved that his nephew “feels free to express himself”.

Imagine how the place has deteriorated from neglect? It probably is literally unlivable after their “occupation”. Imagine what it smells like??

Nobody ever cares for or appreciates anything that is “given” to them.

Items of wealth only have “value” because of the effort it took to earn it.

I’ve never heard of it in the USA and I hope that this info doesn’t give the libs another great idea.

Our system DOES give preference to refugees over citizens though.

"...mansions for poor Somali refugees..."


Muhamed Noor, the affirmative-action Somali policeman in Minnesota is going to be very angry.
He was supposed to get that mansion as a reward for killing that white woman Justine Damond in cold blood. He got scammed!

Hoping they won’t throw acid on people. Appeasement has a grand tradition of failure in the UK.
