Hundreds of Syrian refugees to be housed in UK city plagued by homelessness. Birmingham city councillors will “put their arms out to welcome” 500 migrants under the Tory Government’s resettlement scheme. There were 18,834 individual applicants on the council’s homeless register as well as 464 homeless families in 2009 according to a Freedom of Information Act request.
But the news will come as a blow to the thousands of locals already on the social housing list who are likely to be put back when Syrian migrants are housed.
Member of the ruling elite pondering how to make themselves appear virtuous in the eyes of their peers: help the refugees, or the racist ignorant redneck white losers?
