Angry Chichester resident asks who has the ‘right to housing’

I can’t be the only one, who once again reads about Single Mum Of Two, or recently the ‘single mum of one’ from Latvia who is homeless, because of discriminations against single mothers in her homeland.

All seem to think it’s their God-given right to be housed by their local authority.

Most days in Chichester city centre, there are plenty of these women, congregating with pushchairs and toddlers running amok.

These overweight, cigarette-smoking, foul-mouthed females with mobile telephones stuck to their ears while away the day before returning to their affordable housing, where their partner will be slouched over the television playing the latest Xbox game.

Before the evening is out, after much consuming of alcohol, there will be an almighty vocal argument with plenty of swearing – whereupon the police will be called, and another day ends for Single Mum of Two.

How do I know this?

I am one of the unfortunates, who happen to live near affordable housing.
