Somali refugee family of nine pay just £90-a-week to live in the £2.2m London council house they’ve called home for 15 years

This London council house is worth £2.2million – but the tenants who live there pay just £90 a week.

The four bedroom Georgian property in London’s trendy Clerkenwell district could be rented out for £900 a week.

But Islington Council charge the social tenants who live there a 10th of the market rate – making it one of the UK’s most expensive council houses.

Somalian refugees Muriidi Abati, 57, and wife Maryan, 43, have lived there for 15 years with their seven children aged between eight and 23.

    The kids are getting older, so they’ll need more room. Evict the neighbours and knock through to the house next door. Same rent of course.

      Welfare is the root of all evil.

    No wonder somali tribesmen want to leave their huts behind and head for the big city in the UK.

    Thank goodness it didn’t go to anyone guilty of White Privledge™!

      UK veterans are left to die … on the street since there is no affordable housing available to them.

      • Ottawa Eyes

        It’s the same here in Canada where veterans can’t get housing, and seniors are displaced by recent “migrants”.

    Don’t be fooled by the claim of 9 people in that dwelling. The adult males are back in Somalia doing Jihad or coaching other sloths on how the game the system in the UK.

    We just found out that John McCallum LIED about the 40,000 muslims refugees having phd’s and won’t be a burden on Taxpayer . It’s been 2 years and 90% are still on welfare while the Christian refugees have about 35% still on welfare but THEY want to take an ESL Class to be employable and join Canada’s way of life.

    Looks like McCallum’s muslims want to carve out an islamic $hit-hole in Toronto and every place they parachuted into as to feel at home as the Sucker Taxpayers
    are really paying the Jizya because Allah tells them that they are the Master-Race.

      Remember that many of the “employed” are employed in various nonprofits or “charities” to help bring in and settle more migrants or are now with Islamic organizations. So they still aren’t adding to the economy in any way, or taking from it.

      • Observer

        That last line should read:
        “only taking from it”.

        When Maher Arar was suing us for $400,000,000.00 his wife got a Job in the Ottawa Office for the NDP and later on Jack Layton used her to run for the MP seat in the Arab/Muslims riding with jew-haters and the anti-USA population thanks to the CBC Ottawa Studio .
        But these devout muslims and Arabs won’t be ruled over by a Women and refused to elect her. Carolyn Parrish won the Erin Mills Liberal MP seat in the Muslims area because she was a useful idiot to exploit as an Infidel on top of her hatred for the USA and Bush .

        The welfare Office near me must have many of the bogus refugees employed there as translators for the flood of welfare cases by their people. Since refugees get Full Dental coverage….there are now 6 Dental Offices near the same Intersection South of the welfare Office and 3 of them do the high prices Implants we are paying for . Window signs indicate they have staff that speak Spanish and arabic .
        It’s the Welfare Industrial Complex that gets people Elected and keeps CUPE happy with more Union members handing out money.

      It was not only Otis Campbell (aka John McCallum) who lied about these syrian mohammedans being doctors, engineers, professors & phd first it was our defense monster the abominable harjit sajjan who visited the refugee camps in Jordan & came back with this report.

  • Canadian Born

    Is that not happening in Canada? On the news last night it was said, there were about 35 thousand Canadians living on the street. How many are veterans that have fought to protect this country? Some have frozen to death. Now I can bet you, not one of them were from Syria. How many were brought here by the moron, wasn’t it about 30,000? They came to Canada and were given the best of the best. So we are no different than London. Why the hell are Canadians letting this happen?

      It’s disappointing that homelessness and excessive immigration are not connected in discussions of those issues.

    • A Hamilton Guy

      And I heard from a reliable scource the were and are still bitching, “it’s not good enough.”

      • Observer

        There’s been a few news stories about that in various western countries. They know that the more the demand the more they get.

        In Sweden the churches are refusing to give shelter to homeless Swedes in their homeless shelters and only allowing migrants to stay there! It’s absolutely disgusting.

  • andycanuck

    It looks nicer than the original Upstairs Downstairs house.

    There is nothing the Globalist elites wont do for these invaders. As for us Old Stock who built the West, we are worthless in their eyes

  • So, they’ve been in the country at least 15 years and still on the dole? Nice!

    • John Boy

      So are the vast majority of them in whatever western country they seek jizya in.

      • I think I heard in Sweden that something like 87% of foreign immigrants were unemployed and on public assistance.

        • John Boy

          Is that all? I am sure they are reducing the number for political reasons.

          • Come to think of it, I think it may have been 97%. My memory is what I use to forget with.

    Corbyn’s constituency. With rotten to the core vote whores and fixers all down the line.

    Outrageous, complete scandalous.
    Why these poor mohammedan sooomali parasites have to pay £90/week to city council??
    It should be the city council paying these leeches £900/wk for their mere presence & enriching dim britain.
