Tenants' Fury As Husband Of Labour Mp Buys The Home She Vowed To Save

Recommended Posts

Tenants' fury as husband of labour MP buys the home she vowed to save

By COLIN FERNANDEZ - More by this author » Last updated at 09:00am on 7th September 2007

Desirable: the Georgian townhouse bought at auction for £572,000

Enlarge the image

With the prospect of their homes in a desirable Georgian terrace being sold off to wealthy incomers, the worried tenants knew exactly who to call.

Their Labour MP, a human rights lawyer, made great play of her efforts to protect affordable housing - once campaigning with the slogan 'social housing for all, not luxury flats for the wealthy'.

On top of that, surely it couldn't hurt that her husband was a QC specialising in landlord and tenant disputes? And Emily Thornberry came up with the goods, reassuring her constituents she would 'look into' their case and do everything she could to help.

But their faith in 47-year-old Miss Thornberry is now under strain after they discovered that her husband, who is a judge as well as a QC, had bought one of the properties.

As I have said many times on HPC -- NuLabour MPs are in the BTL scam up to their necks..........

I would expect nothing less from someone who works in the legal profession

EDIT: perhaps that's a bit harsh?

Nu Labour with it's nose so firmly in the trough that it fails to notice what is going on around it.

Don't worry they are probably already losing money on it plus sounds like "subsidising" the rent just like so many other BTLs.

Do you think they will blame Gordon as well? Can they?

From the article:

"His one-bedroom flat was owned by the Ujima Housing Association, which specialises in homes for black and Asian families"

This is what really gets up my nose! :angry: Imagine the furore if a HA was set up specialising in homes for white people, or people with at least three generations that have been born and lived in the UK?

So there's no hypocrisy, even as a gay man I find HA's and organisations that specialise in housing gay people equally offensive and divisive.

[rant over] Its Friday night and there's beer to be drunk. :)

Emily Thornberry is my local MP; she sends her child to a fee-paying public school and is generally a complete hypocrite and careerist, like most Nu-Labour MPs.

Your avatar seems to be the wrong way round, it should be:

Buy

Consume

Work

Die

Hey don't knock it. I'm CEO of BlackBender Homes. Our community has a throbbing nightlife.

The FundamentalistIslamicPoof development has been a bit slow getting started.

Seriously somebody should set one up! How are housing associations funded?

The liberal hippiescharacter0066.gif would have to be complete hypocrites to object if they've not raised a peep over the above HA. Infact I bet you there's loads of these bloody anti British HA's all over country.
