Stone was among a group of single mothers who were forced to get political when threatened with eviction from their hostel.It’s quite simple, if you are dependent on the state for your housing, you are going to live where the state puts you. Which is often where it’s cheapest.
Want to live where you prefer? Then get a job & earn your own way.
The sob-story about a woman ‘cruelly evicted’ turned out to be about as truthful too (though Aditya Chakrabortty was fooled, but then…) :
Newham council said it “took back an illegally occupied” council property.
“The former tenant was lawfully evicted on 25 March due to high and historic rent arrears,” a council spokeswoman said.
“The council made many attempts to help with her rent arrears since she first started having problems but she has not fully engaged with these offers of assistance. Officers are now working closely with the tenant to resolve her current financial and housing situation and has provided her with temporary accommodation until a permanent solution can be found.”Put her in with the Stones of this world. Sounds like they all deserve each other.
And there’s something frankly obscene about the rabble-rousing CiF crowd cheering on the squatters while living lives every bit as ‘disconnected’ from ‘the poor’ as they claim the Tories’ lives are, isn’t there?
