British Welfare State Run Amuck

Quoting The Daily Mail:
“A family of former asylum-seekers from Somalia are living in a £2.1million luxury townhouse in one of Britain's most exclusive addresses at a cost to taxpayers of £8,000 a month…

Mr Nur said his former five-bedroom home in the Kensal Rise area of Brent, which cost £900 a week in housing benefit, was suitable for the family's needs but he said they had felt compelled to move because they did not like living 'in a very poor area' and were unhappy with the quality of local shops and schools…

Rules allow anyone who is eligible for housing benefit to claim for a private property in any part of the country they wish.”
Got that?
If Buckingham Palace was for rent, welfare bums could live THERE!
Their new landlord previously asked £1,050 per week in rent.
But, taxpayers are paying £2,000 per week to the landlord!
