Mrs Mahmoud, 40, and her seven children were branded a “family from hell” after complaints about noise, mess and abusive behaviour – as the Daily Express reported on Wednesday.
But the local council decided not to pursue eviction proceedings because the jobless woman’s children are as young as five.So we will again be held hostage by a tribe of ingrates because they’ve managed to reproduce?
I seem to recall when Saddam held children as a human shield, he was excoriated for it. Yet the left allow their ‘victim class’ to do it all the time!
Officials decided not to evict them because if thrown out, they could present themselves as homeless at the nearest council office and, under the law, would be regarded as a housing priority.
Last night, Greg Smith, deputy leader of Hammersmith and Fulham Council, said the family will be moved out of the borough as soon as possible.
He said: “This council takes a zero tolerance approach to anti-social behaviour and our residents can now bid these neighbours from hell farewell.
“It is appalling that families like this repay the British taxpayer by wreaking havoc and showing a complete lack of respect to their law-abiding and hard-working neighbours.”It is indeed. Yet no-one seems to want to do anything about it.
We seem merely to be compounding the problem by opening our doors to yet more ungrateful ‘refugees’ of the sort that spent a merry few days throwing rocks at weary Hungarian border cops.
A council spokesman said: “Notwithstanding the appalling behaviour, the council reluctantly acknowledges that under the law of the land it still has a legal obligation to house this family.”Yes. So put them in the lowest rung of the housing ladder in the worst slum estate you can find. They deserve no more.
