Wow, Even The Nano-Violin Is Too Big For This One...

...and the 'Give-A-Fuck-Ometer' just exploded:
Twenty-nine single mums - all aged under 25 - are being evicted from a hostel and could be relocated hundreds of miles away after the mother and baby unit was closed following funding cuts.
Oh noes! *fetches tissues*
Since the women received a letter last month stating they had to leave by October 20, housing organisation East Thames has offered them new accommodation as far away as Manchester, Birmingham and Hastings.
Oh, right. Not exactly Outer Mongolia, then?
The majority of the young mothers grew up in Newham and are reluctant to leave their friends and family. Jasmine Spone, 19, was staying on friends’ couches until she moved in 15 months ago when her daughter Safia was born.
She said: “We want our children to grow up around our families. I’m 19 and I have a baby and we both need support.”
Well, tough! You should have thought about that before you saddled the taxpayer with another mouth to feed, shouldn't you?
Another, Javea Samuel, 22, mum to three-year-son Jofiah, fears she will have to drop out of college if she is forced to move away.
“I can’t move outside of London. I’m trying to make a life for my son and get myself off benefits,” she said.
They do have colleges (and jobs!) in Manchester, Birmingham and Hastings, you know...

They are moaning about not being near their families, but what about all the previous Newham residents of all races, who have fled that shithole to get away from Islam Don't they get sympathy? I'm familiar with Newham and if the council or the government is looking for savings they could look to the Islamic inbreeders the products of which are swallowing up increasing amounts of healthcare and social care funding.

I know of British pensioners in Newham who have had to beg crappy manual wheelchairs from the Red Cross, whilst the brain damaged products of Islamic cousin marriage swan round the Gallions Reach shopping centre in top of the range electric wheelchairs.

To be quite frank, being shipped out of a shithole like Newham could probably be the making of these single mothers.

Newham is a shithole, they are probably better off out from there.

"We want our children to grow up around our families"

Where, one wonders, was this all-important family when she was 'staying on friends' couches'?

I could be wrong, but judging by the names and having an inkling of the demographics of the area, I have a sneaking suspicion that once again this is a case of "Ole Whitey" sticking it to the blackman (or woman) again. /sarc.

If they want to be close to their families, why don't they move in with them?

Fuck 'em.

I live in Newham. In the last 2 years, the 6 houses around mine (3 to the left, mine and 2 opposite) have experienced the following:

3 x housebreaking and theft including significant damage to remaining items.

5 x stolen vehicles (1 motorcycle and 4 cars)

1 x home invasion involving panga, knives and an axe (granted - that one was an NIH incident, but it still left other neighbors feeling vulnerable)

2 x muggings

Every penny that isn't spent on people who haven't learned to cross their legs is another penny that the major can either use to get another parking spot even closer to the lift, more money to give to westham FC for their new stadium, or maybe, just maybe, some spare cash to try and protect the rest of us who live there.

Grr - that's what I get for posting in a rush. That should have read NHI (No Humans Involved), not NIH.

XX Since the women received a letter last month stating they had to leave by October 20, XX

Who read that out for the bastards then?

Again, it takes two to make a baby. Although no doubt one of them nothing but a vague memory of a good looking chap wearing a polo shirt down a dark alley behind a nightclub. Plus we have walk-on parts from the friends and family and then we have the poor girls themselves; convinced of their God given right to live in one of the world's most expensive cities... and yet, it's somehow all my fault?

On second thoughts... after reading the comments above; I volunteer to pay to keep them in Newham.

Good. Fuck off! (Is about what remains of my sympathy)

"I volunteer to pay to keep them in Newham."

A jolly decent offer...if not pointless and premature, JP. The said Communist State is well known for charity cheating; scams of Nigerian proportions and political posturing. Sending money will ensure your entry on the International Sucker List, old chap.

" I'm familiar with Newham and if the council or the government is looking for savings they could look to the Islamic inbreeders the products of which are swallowing up increasing amounts of healthcare and social care funding."

But they aren't looking for savings that hard!

"Where, one wonders, was this all-important family when she was 'staying on friends' couches'?"

I suspect one has to translate 'family' rather loosely..

"... or maybe, just maybe, some spare cash to try and protect the rest of us who live there."

They aren't interested in that, though, are they? It'll get spent on another council vanity project.

"Again, it takes two to make a baby."

Two?!? You clearly don't know Newham that well... ;)
