Queensbury raid uncovers 35 men living in house

Recommended Posts

Disgusting. These people are victims of a landlord willing to trade people's basic rights for profit.

I know that migrants in cramped accommodation get little sympathy with many, but they are the oppressed in these situations. The media has, for years, informed us that migrants are the cause of social problems, whereas in reality they are the victims of exploitation.

Landlords who treat people in this way deserve everything which the legal system can throw at them.

It is possible for both statements to be true.  Although I blame those who let people come here (sometimes pay them) but maintain strict housing controls and will not change the benefit system.

True.

this is an inevitable consequence of the current system of tightly restricted housing supply and mass immigration...just where exactly do people think the immigrants are going to live exactly?  Has anybody in a position of power even considered this question - I have seen no evidence of this.  They don't care...they are comfortably housed and don't give a fluck..

This x 1000.

Why has no thought (or perceived thought) gone into this? Is it because the politicians are wanting  HPI gainz to inifiniti? Because they're "all" BTL scumlords themselves? To win votes?? (When can immigrants start to vote anyway?).

Surely the many incidents like this should be discussed in Parliment, no? And how this is direct effect of mass immmigration. Why are they not coming down like a tonne of bricks on these LL's?

Simple case of you encourage it so should provide for it..... alright getting all the benefits of cheap labour, GDP, growth in numbers of people producing, spending and paying all forms of taxes....but also disadvantaging a large chunk of the population that have not benefited individually, it has made life more difficult for them...lack of suitable and affordable housing, competition for work and whole neighborhoods changing due to overcrowding..... don't blame the people they live where they can, it is the lack of forethought......Mr TB where did you think all these millions of extra people would live? Next door to you?;)

anecdotal: had a meeting with a potential customer this week, we were discussing the turnover of staff being a real problem in the sector due to shortage of qualified staff (healthcare) meaning wages are starting to go up and companies are offering new starter incentives to recruit staff. I said this is great for the staff given they have the power to get paid what they are worth, but not great for the companies as no one stays anywhere very long and it creates a high churn of staff so exacerbates the problem.

Her solution was that all the companies should get together and have an informal agreement not to pay their staff more than x, she genuinely looked perplexed when I joked it was a cartel and that MMC would be after her ass. She couldn't see it. Central planner type role.
