A good example of how we get it SO wrong …


A 20-year-old woman is fighting a council’s decision to ban her from living in a shed in her parents’ back garden.

NHS worker Victoria Campbell has been living in a one-bedroom cabin since last September while she saves up for a deposit for a house.

The structure was built by her parents, Jenny and Colin, at a cost of £14,000.

Saving: NHS worker Victoria Campbell has been living in a one-bedroom cabin since last September while she saves up for a deposit for a house

The shed was intended to be a temporary home for Miss Campbell and her boyfriend, Bill Warden, while they saved for a deposit on a mortgage.

But now her local council has given her nine months to move out of the shed at Havant, Hampshire, or face a fine.

The council’s planning committee ruled that it was ‘not appropriate for primary living accommodation.’

MEANWHILE….

Families camped illegally at Dale Farm are still being paid thousands of pounds in housing benefits by the council that is in an ongoing legal battle to have them evicted.

Basildon Council pays as much as £53,625 a year for 25 families at the 51-pitch site which the authority says they are entitled to, even though they have not got planning permission.

Leader, Tony Ball, said two years ago that benefits for mobile home rent paid to families on the illegal site had been stopped but yesterday it was confirmed that was not the case.

 So, to get this right…
A person that WORKS FOR A LIVING in a job to help others, is SAVING up for her own home to avoid debt and be independent… is told SHE CANNOT LIVE HOW SHE PLEASES? But the people that are costing us flip knows how much in housing BENEFIT are living in illegally erected houses are spared eviction?
Is it any wonder that people emigrate?

  1. For some time now the travellers have been able to claim special dispensation because they are of a different ethnic group to the majority of this country’s citizens. Despite being in ‘the majority’ of citizens of this country, Victoria Campbell is of a different ethnic group than travellers so she would have a very good case for racial discrimination by her local council as it goes against EU legislation as well as the Human Rights Act. All it now needs is for a ethical lawyer (oxymoron?) to act for Miss Campbell. I won’t hold my breath.

  2. As ever the nice people get screwed, the scrotes run free……..

  3. Can’t she somehow ‘prove’ she is a vulnerable minority – or an illegal immigrant – or move out, and come back after the locks have been changed, and ‘squat’ (so her parents can’t evict her) – or put very small wheels on it and join the ‘non-travelling-traveller’ community. Or use it as a ‘second home’ whilst actually living in a caravan in the Council Offices car park

  4. We have got it all soooo wrong!

  5. It’s because she doesn’t fall into a “minority” mate. If she was the council wouldn’t touch her with a bargepole.

  6. Of course she’s a minority. She’s a female, with a job, wanting to get married, willing to pay taxes. That’s four minority’s right there!
