Reinterpreting Queensbury rules: nice and cosy

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-41334906

A raid on a three-bedroom house in north west London found 35 men living in rooms full of mattresses.

The discovery was made on Winchester Avenue, Queensbury, on Tuesday following noise complaints from neighbours, Brent council said.

The men, of Eastern European origin, had piled bedding in every room except bathrooms.

The house opposite was full of mattresses like that, we might be going back 10 years though. 

They kicked off with each other once and I witnessed someone being stabbed. I'd rung the police because the fight looked bad enough, so I was on the phone when I saw the guy stab someone and the person disappeared behind the hedge.  The police hid round the corner until there was enough of them to go in and break it up, by which time it had mostly fizzled out. 

When they moved out the next tenant found even more mattresses in the loft that had been used for sleeping. And there were a couple of kitchen knives tucked behind a planter in the front garden.

That article is a bit giddy with itself: Mr Farah added: "Any landlord treating their tenants unfairly should be on notice: we're coming for you."

Erm, if they're all claiming HB then HB needed to pick up on this. And anyone stupid enough to live like this is as much to blame.

The landlord probably doesn't even know it has been sublet to 100 other people.

Or care, or be accountable, or simply looking the other way.

So to compete on a relative salary/cost base the only way to do it is to do the same. Makes Dickensian Britain look positively jolly.

I for one, welcome our cultural enrichment and vibrancy enhancement. I'm going long on mattresses'.

Lithuanians then.

Poles go for drunk brawls.

Lithuanians tend to stab each other.

Balkans go for full on blood feuds, stabbings, murders.

Thanks you Brown, you stupid cunt.

There was a family feud between Kosovars and/or Serbs(I think, might have been Albanians) going on in both Switzerland and Kosovo/Serbia in the last few years. It stopped last year, but only because all but about 2 of both families were dead. About 20-30 killings altogether in about 5 or 6 years, about 5 of which were in Switzerland.

Lovely cultures, perfectly ok to try and integrate them into Western Europe, I see no issue.

Is it stupid? 16hrs a week + benefits + cash in hand - £100pm rent = clearing £50k and life they could only dream of when they go back home in 12-24mths. 

For those of us who wish to stay here, the 12-24mths needs to be 5-10yrs to make the figures work and then the sacrifice isn't worth making.

I see a lot of big numbers bandied about on here sometimes. £50k from bennies and 16hrs a week? I would love to be on £50k a yer and I work loads.

I reckon when you add up housing and council tax benefit, working 16hrs, working tax credits and working on the side... £18k maybe?

Monthly (ish)

housing benefit £450

council tax benefit £100

working 16hrs (even at £10 p/h) £700

working tax credits £250

working on the side £500

=£2k a month, so £24k a year.

That's me using high figures too- £10ph, £450 rent, etc. Not the £18k I guessed but not £50k or anywhere near it.

You forgot the kids with various made-up disabilities. And the fact that 24k net income equates to a salary of much more.

That's true, I forgot it would take a salary of about £30k to get £24k ish.

Yes, probably loads of folk scamming the system too.

I think there will be a lot of people though, who are just on low hours, with low hourly rates, with no working on the side, who don't claim falsely and are properly poor. 

We certainly shouldn't be giving this to randoms who have come over here.

You can make accurate figures with https://www.entitledto.co.uk/ if you really want to give yourself high blood pressure. The url is probably on every emigration forum in Eastern Europe, and maybe even in African countries because I think if you are granted refugee status you can then claim like a native. Wonder how much the number of kids diagnosed with ADHD in Eastern Europe has risen in the last few years.....

Join Gordon Brown's party, get a couple of your kids diagnosed with ADHD, and stop working so hard, you'll be quids in.

EXCLUSIVE: The landlords of a semi-detached house where 35 Eastern European men were found living illegally in squalor are two doctor brothers and their mother who live a luxury lifestyle, MailOnline can reveal. Council officials and police who raided the house in Queensbury, north west London (bottom right), on Tuesday were shocked to discover the huge number of tenants sleeping on mattresses which were crammed on to the floor of almost every room (top right). The house is jointly owned by doctors Neil Hathi, 31, and his brother Sunil, 30, (bottom left), who both work as doctors and post pictures on Facebook of exotic holidays (inset) and their mother Meenaxi Hathi (top left). Mrs Hathi lives in a five bedroom detached house worth £1.5million (centre), which has two Mercedes cars parked in the driveway in leafy Brockley Avenue in Stanmore, Middlesex. The family say that they rented out the property to a couple and a man six weeks ago and were unaware so many people were living there. They told MailOnline: 'We are not people who would rent out sub standard accommodation.'

One of the mums on our school run is a sergeant on the WMids police forces murder squad and her remit only extends to working on cases where the perpetrators/victims are Eastern Europeans AFAIK for all other murders there is only one other team -   Speaks volumes really.

      Fast food giants, coffee shops and retailers are relabelling low-skilled jobs as apprenticeships, a report says.
      The study by think tank Reform says many firms have rebranded existing roles after being obliged to contribute cash to on-the-job training.
      The study says 40% of the apprenticeship standards approved do not meet traditional definition of such skilled on-the-job training courses.
      The government says "quality" is at the heart of its apprenticeship reforms.
      As part of the changes, it introduced an apprenticeship levy on organisations paying more than £3m in salaries a year. 
      They have to pay 0.5% of their wages total into a "digital account" held by HMRC.
      They then "spend" these contributions on apprenticeship training delivered by registered providers. They can also get back up to 90% of the cost of training.
       
      The report says: "As part of the government's wider package of reforms to apprenticeships, groups of employers came together to write the new 'apprenticeship standards'. 
      "Some used this opportunity to generate high-quality standards, but others appear to be simply rebadging low-quality, low-skill and often low-wage roles as 'apprenticeships' instead."
      In 2013, the government said apprenticeships had to be skilled roles, requiring substantial and sustained training of at least 12 months, leading to full competency and should provide the apprentice with transferrable skills in an occupation.
      But a quick glance at the government's official apprenticeships website shows many high street firms advertising for apprentices in what appear to be unskilled roles.
      For example, KFC is advertising for an apprentice hospitality team member.
      The advert describes the apprenticeship as "a structured, learner and employer-focused development programme designed to create opportunities for lifelong knowledge, skills and behaviours".
      But the role is described as cooking "fries" and other products and serving customers front of house, or cooking and assembling KFC products, while maintaining clean, sanitary working conditions. 
      It says training is based around day-to-day duties, but will also involve one-to-one interactions with a specialised trainer every four to six weeks.
       
      and the government does nothing to stop these exploitative practices

      Hope Not Hate wants to have a national conversation on immigration. I think we all need to get involved in their conversation. Oops, our conversation.
      They have an online survey and are touring the UK.
      I wonder if they have an agenda? Hmmm...

      No downwards pressure on wages for them.  It's basically a closed shop, protecting them from a mass of cheaper workers.
       
      Can we not have a campaign to enable anyone to be in any film, show, or TV show without the discriminatory WALL of an equity card being needed?  Media, over to you....
