In fact she lives just a short distance from Westminster in a rented house in Wapping, East London, in social accommodation, the modern equivalent of a council house.
Now Spitalfields Housing Association, the owners of the three-bedroom house, has engaged lawyers to examine whether she should be allowed to continue renting in Wapping, according to Inside Housing, a trade magazine.
Legally a tenant with an assured or secure tenancy must live in the social home as their “only or principal home”, meaning that she could have breached her tenancy. Lady Uddin is understood to share a joint tenancy on the home with her husband.
Omar Mapara, chief executive of Spitalfields Housing Association, said: “We have written to her requesting that she confirms that she and her husband continue to occupy our property as their only or principal home and we await a response.”
So, the good Baroness might be breaking the terms of her tenancy agreement—and how!—and she should be evicted. However, I suspect that she won't be...
Avril Smith, senior lawyer at Lawrence Graham, told Inside Housing: “She could claim it was [her husband's] main residence only, which could comply with the rules.”
This just goes to show how fucking stupid the benefits system has become. Few people would object to some provision for the poorest in our society, but Baroness Uddin is most definitely not that.
Further, she has been protesting about the lack of availability of social housing for the poor—whilst occupying one of those houses herself. This is the purest hypocrisy: she is lining her already bulging pockets at the expense of the poorest in society.
I hope that she is evicted, dragged from her house and humiliated by the bailiffs in full view of all the neighbours. She is scum.
