A family of eight living in a three-bedroom house has been told there is no prospect of being moved to a bigger property any time soon.Right. And clearly, the social housing stock can’t supply homes of the size required?
Ex-soldier Simon Pennell, 32, and his partner, Kelly Tyler, 37, have six children, aged three to 16.
… housing bosses say they do not have enough council properties big enough for the family.Funny, they always seem to find them for others…
But maybe Mr Pennell could have avoided this situation?
Mr Pennell, of Affleck Road, Greenstead, Colchester, said: “We understand there are not many council properties available and we have been as patient as possible, but we have been waiting seven years now and the situation has been desperate for a long time.”*counts on fingers*
You’ve been waiting seven years, and your youngest child is three…?
