Sprawling shanty town dubbed the ‘Manchester Jungle’ has sprung up housing 50 homeless immigrants on the grounds of a prestigious university

A sprawling shanty town – nicknamed the ‘Manchester Jungle’ – has been set up in the centre of the city by homeless Eastern European immigrants.

More than 20 tents and waterproof sheets as well as makeshift washing lines, housing around 50 people, are on University of Manchester land off London Road near the busy Piccadilly railway station and landmark hotels including the Malmaison and the Macdonald.

Manchester City Council said it was working with the people living there, mainly Lithuanians, Poles and Albanians, to help them in to accommodation.

    If they are homeless long enough, maybe they will go back to the homes they left.

    Albania isn’t in the EU, so Albanians living rough are readily deportable if the UK Border Force would stir a finger..

    Just make them professors. What’s the worst that happens? They blame everything on the Jews? It’s a British school, that’s axiomatic anyway.

    Since the Liberal mafia is determined to impose hundreds of thousands of Muslim “refugees” on us, we should lobby to have all of them placed on university campuses across the country. Let those “professors” and their indoctrinated students be the first to benefit of this addition.

      The people who scream the loudest for diversity often have the least actual contact with it. Set up the refugee shelters in their neighbourhoods.
