Happy Christmas! Pay Your Rent

Hammersmith and Fulham council’s unwavering drive to get value for money for taxpayers doesn’t stop at Christmas.

They are spreading the joy and Christmas cheer to their local council tenants, marking the season of goodwill and definitely not wasting money by sending them all festive cards.

Warning them to pay their rent.

At least there’s a sprig of holly…

      The Tawat is deliberately complicating the issue says:

      Denis that is French law and fuck all to do with the ECHR. In British law the judge does not have to remove voting rights because they are automatically removed when a person becomes a prisoner, like their freedom is.

        Meanwhile in Britain, magistrates have no power to order or even recommend someone’s deportation, no matter how often they appear in front of them, nor are they entitled to ask about whether the accused or any witnesses called in front of them is actually in the UK legally.

    But it’s not fair for poor people to have to spend money on essentials like rent at this time of year instead of ipads and stuff.

    Only morons pay rent.

    Much better to stay with your parents and build up a big nest egg to put as a deposit on a house.

    If only we had that welfare cash card so people couldn’t overindulge when they can’t afford to

    I’ve decided to be really tough on immigrants and say they have to wait 3 months for their benefits. After all every other country in Europe has been doing this for years. Chillax

      Pees off eengleesh. We will just hang around cashpoints for 3 months or sell beeg eeshu and claim to be self employed.

      The EU run this country, not the government says:

      To make that legal, Cameron would have to make EVERYONE claiming benefits wait 3 months. He isn’t going to do that and everyone knows his position is entirely posture and his threats hollow.

        QUITE RIGHT THAT RENT MONEY SHOULD BE SECURED BEFORE FESTIVE EXCESSES ARE CONSIDERED.

        WHY …… indeed …. ……NOT TO DO SO WOULD BE AKIN TO …. WELL…
        . A FIRST WORLD SOVEREIGN COUNTRY SUDDENLY DECIDING THAT ON A GIVEN DATE …. SAY THIS COMING FIRST JANUARY … A POSSIBLE 29 MILLION FOREIGNERS COULD ENTER ITS BORDERS LEGALLY AND BE SUBSIDISED TO DOMICILE IN ITS JURISDICTION FOR EVERMORE AT THE EXPENSE OF INDIGENOUS TAXPAYERS .

        OH ….. WAIT ONE MOMENT .

    Do they send out a similar message at Eid?

    How do they know what religion their tenants follow?

    i knew someone who actually worked for the Council and bragged he didn’t pay his Council tax.

    I think some Councils have tightened up on this sort of thing in some places now

      There were plenty like this including councillors. Pulling strings and formal notices of default seemed commonplace, at least they were “working” at this point rather than fiddling flexitime, rotating sickies, gassing and coffee drinking. This lot still need close scrutiny.

    Who the fuck is that fast talking waffling Tory bullshit artist in with Brillo?
    She is fucking appalling….almost as bad as that Labour mouthpiece Thornberry.

    Is the option 2 at the very bottom for Polish or Urdu speakers- I think we should be told.

    How about Hammersmith and Fulham council not overindulging itself all year fucking round?

    No more premium-private-sector style remuneration with fat taxpayer funded pension on top, no more platinum-handshakes, no more posh offices in nice historic buildings, etc.

    They wanted a rump of useless doleites to vote Labour in forever, they’ve got it.

    How much lower could H&F council property rents be if their employees didn’t enjoy a staggeringly generous index-linked pension?

    They should pay they are supbsidised by local taxpayers[ and; further more tyeh Big ;is the biggest supporter of east european migrans here; in my town all the sellers are already Romanian or other east european migrants and none of’ them are homeless all have been housed under EU regulations.

    They have money to spend on the slot’ machines in the betting shop.

    Penfold says:

    Good idea, some people are such fuckwits that they would spend rather than pay the rent expecting someone else to pick up the tab.

    As for X’Mas gifts, Bah Humbug.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
