It’s a damn disgrace that the council can pay that sort of money to house those people. They’ll eventually wreck the house. I’m quite certain those people will be able to fill their tanks with oil because they get so many benefits from the state. It’s unbelievable. You wouldn’t want them beside you and I don’t want them beside me. There should be an isolated community of them somewhere.
