Was this the stance in hull after the floods? 139 homes offered - only 9 accept - give us what we want

Genuine question? LOL!

"Mr Corbyn, when did you leave the IRA?" Another genuine question.

It does invalidate the purpose of house insurance if the government is going to compensate those made homeless by fire, flood etc. Will those of us who have it get a rebate akin to PPI repayments for being advised to purchase an unnecessary financial product

Perhaps Edward Sheeran and Lily Allen can knock out a single every time it happens.

Nailed it gull but I remember that the Hull flood were not politicised in such a way. Of course the top trumps body count goes to Grenfell but the foods were similarly made worse by lack of maintenance of pumping and drainage system etc. Etc.

So the question still stands

Surely you - of all people - should easily be able to find out the answer to your questions.

If you have home and contents insurance you get money for the destroyed home and you can buy one of your choice in a location of your choice. A council flat in Preston is not a replacement for a Londoner.

A council flat in a neighbouring borough of London should be acceptable to someone who isn't a Londoner though, rather than complaining it's a mile from school. Why were refugees even put up in central London in the first place, if there were spare flats there then why not prioritise essential workers in that area, eg nurses?

I thought there was a housing crisis in London - my brother lives in south London and has to pay loads to commute each day to his place of work. Why is a neighbouring borough not acceptable?

For someone who had to move across the country for work with a very young family I have little sympathy for the amount of 'displacement' going on. It's not enough to refuse a re-housing offer.

Preston was one of the places I moved to candy - these Londoners can soon become Prestonians - they would be most welcome.

My eldest has been working in London and being ripped off for rent for 2 years now, moved from Southark, to Peckham and now in Bermondsey. Keeps on the move trying to get best balance of rental and transport costs for work in Westminster. My take is that she's crazy and living in virtual squalor but she enjoys her job, has her next couple of years mapped out so is putting up with it as a means to an end. Of course she's from a family that believe in working for a living, taking a few hardships along the way, and not always chasing someat for nowt. What happened with the tower block was first and foremost an absolute tragedy and also a national disgrace, whichever way you look at it, but once again the freeloaders amongst the victims, will ensure that public sentiment towards their plight will slowly start to turn South. 

Fuck the short term we will build a 1000 year Hull City Reich

I'm not sure how many houses were demolished because of the floods but the people I know who were affected moved into temporary accommodation to allow repairs to be made to their home.

Has the Tory Council given the tenants a guarantee that the block of flats will be demolished and rebuilt thereby allowing them to return to their homes destroyed in the fire?
