59% Of Brits Agree With Marxist Corbyn: Empty Luxury London Flats Should Be Used To House Homeless

With at least 58 dead (30 confirmed, 28 presumed), the Grenfell Tower fire in London is undoubtedly a disaster, but (riding high on his recent election gains) Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s solution for those made homeless by the fire seems to confirm his pro-Marxian perspective on life – government will seize the empty homes of rich people in Kensington to rehouse residents.

London police raised the probable death toll from this week’s tower block inferno to 58, amid mounting concern about U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s ability to deal with the fallout as protesters took to the capital’s streets.

The Grenfell Tower blaze has sparked anger and flickers of social unrest in the streets of west London amid an atmosphere of political paralysis as May struggles to respond to the disaster. The prime minister was initially criticized for not meeting with victims during a visit to the site on Thursday. On Friday evening, she was heckled as a “coward” as she left a meeting with locals, despite announcing 5 million pounds ($6.4 million) for emergency costs.

But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has a solution to make these people feel better about their dead family members and burned out lives…

As The Telegraph reports, he has called for the empty homes of rich people in Kensington to be seized for Grenfell Tower residents who have been made homeless by the fire.

 The Government has committed to rehousing all those who lost their homes in the fire in the local area, but the Labour leader suggested that “requisitioning” expensive vacant properties could help ensure that residents are housed locally.

 

However Mr Corbyn said: “Kensington is a tale of two cities. The south part of Kensington is incredibly wealthy, it’s the wealthiest part of the whole country.

 

“The ward where this fire took place is, I think, the poorest ward in the whole country and properties must be found – requisitioned if necessary – to make sure those residents do get re-housed locally.

 

“It can’t be acceptable that in London we have luxury buildings and luxury flats left empty as land banking for the future while the homeless and the poor look for somewhere to live. We have to address these issues.”

What is perhaps even more stunning about this blatant disregard for private property rights is that 59% of Brits support it

  1. Good idea but he is a bit of a dreamer.
    Do you know what a NIMBY is?
    It stands for Not In My Back Yard.
    That’s what the rich are like so expect loads of instant legal challenges.
    The difference between them and the homeless and why they will win?
    MONEY!
