He owns property worth £5million, a chain of restaurants and a supermarket.Really..?
But multi-millionaire Shiraj Haque was revealed to be living in taxpayer-subsided social housing with a rent of just £135 a week.
He is among a number of wealthy people who are, or have been, living in social housing despite already owning a number of homes, according to the Sunday Telegraph.And another wealthy council-property sitter is ex-Labour cabinet member Frank Dobson.
Another is serving Labour councillor Ayesha Chowdhury, who lived in council housing despite owning properties worth at least £1million.
Anyone starting to see the pattern emerging?
Mr Haque said he was housed because his previous home had been demolished.Ah, yes. There it is….
He told the Sunday Telegraph that he lived there because he considered himself a 'social democrat' who 'wanted to connect with the community'.
