Surely this is inciting racial hatred?

Sorry, it is a fb link here so I hope you can see it.

Is there some way that we can check these facts? Surely stating the nationality of the families is an incitement to hatred?

sad

I don't see it as that

I don't see it like that either to me it's pointing out the major flaws in our country.

Disgraceful that someone's taken their time to make such an offensive little pokey article. Comparing the very 'worst' scenarios in order to cause a bit of rage, so everyone can recoil in horror about immigration and broken Britain.

Doesn't mean all soldiers are hard done by and doesn't mean all forriners are on the make. Everyone can be a bit angry and then move onto the next thing that makes them angry, single mothers, people on benefits, etc, etc, it's never ending. Stupid and futile.

It's exactly the kind of reporting I'd expect to see in the Daily Mail or similar. Makes me sick.

I think it does cause problems putting things like this up.
It makes me want to delete the person who put it up!

There is no doubt that some people have better living conditions paid for by the taxpayer than others Brits included.

I do also feel that servicemen should be well looked after when they have laid there life down for others.

But statements like this help no onesad

Also. There are no examples of 'white' or 'British' people living in £1m homes off the back of the state. Is that because there isn't any, or is it because the article is slanted to build on a simmering intolerance of immigrants?

Ex-Servicemen ARE well looked after

ILoveTIFFANY Tue 29-Jan-13 10:18:17

Just had another look... It seems the problem with the ex serviceman is homelessness

That's because they lose the married quarter when they leave.... No matter what

That's because of the MOD... Not the government

They will be high priority for social housing and be waiting it out in hostels... As we did

Yes, blatantly is exactly that and nothing else. Disingenuous to suggest otherwise.

Very ugly sad

That's what I though - we know nothing about these people other than their religion/nationality compared with someone else's profession so how can that possibly prove anything?

It has had over 20,000 shares. How depressing.

Didn't the govt recently announce that people who have served their country through charity or military service etc would get priority soon?

Personally I think that's fair but I do remember lots of people on MN saying it wasn't.

oh well, I posted this link as I couldn't sit on my hands, it's a good enough place to start and even though it will fall on deaf ears!
