A couple with three children are desperate to move out of their “overcrowded” one bedroom flat.Well, why did they move into it then?
The couple have lived in Poynings Drive in Hangleton since 2005, but their problems started when their first child, three-year-old Maryam, was born.
And it has got worse since their second and third daughters were born. The youngest, Hibba, is now ten months old.So you knew you had no room, but kept having children? How is that the council's fault..?
How is that somehow the responsibility of the taxpayer..? Who is, after all, keeping you:
The family receives £176.05 per week from income support and £48.10 from child benefit per week. Mr Ishaq said rent is £76 per week which he gets in full from housing benefit so the income support and child benefit does not go towards rent, but he said he does have to pay council tax.
Currently the couple are unemployed, after Mr Ishaq suffered from a back injury in 2004 and Widad stays at home to look after the children.Ah, the 'back injury'. Well, I suppose it's time to return to the classics. Clearly, 'mental health issues' have had their moment of fame.
