Bereaved families could have the homes of dead relatives seized under new laws that allow the state to commandeer empty properties.
Local councils will be able to take control of inherited homes if they are left vacant for more than six months.
After that time the beneficiaries of a will risk seeing the house that has been left to them taken over and rented out as social housing.
This is proposed by Ruth Kelly, another one of Blair’s fucking “Babes”, a socialist feminist to the core.
Of course, social housing was originally to provide working class couples and families a step-up onto the property ladder, but now it’s solely for the benefit of single mothers. One of my friends applied to get a council house because he couldn’t stand living with his single mother; he was told, off the record, to forget it. There’s a massive queue for social housing, but only single women with kids are in with a chance. Men can just fuck right off, so it seems.
So in other words, if you leave your house or flat empty – either by dying but not specifying exactly who gets it in your will, by emigrating and not getting round to selling it, or because you just have two properties and would like to spend a while living in just one of them – the government may be able to “commandeer” the vacant property and let some whore and her bastards fester in there.
Some guy comments:
“The right to private property is the Englishman’s right to his castle. This looks to me like the point where Labour has overstepped the mark into behaving more like a dictatorship than a democratic government.”
They overstepped that mark long, long ago.
The seizure of homes must also be approved by a Residential Property Tribunal. These are the panels that have until now been confined to settling disputes between private landlords and tenants.
Residential Property Tribunal! This is what you get with feminist/socialist states; endless laws, regulations, tribunals, and the government constantly invading the lives of its citizens.
I hate this fucking country more and more with each passing day.

I left the UK some time ago.
It was well worth it.

Yea I will be emigrating in a few years. I was thinking about heading to either the UK or the US, but with socialism now in full swing in the UK (I believe you are now paying more taxes than the Germans thanks to Gordon Brown) I had to cross it off my list. USA here I come!

Notice how living in a police state is like living with a crazy mother-in-law. Nagging, intrusive, meddling, always pushing you to see how much they can get away with, always on the attack, and a sense that you are dealing with an entity intrinsically evil to its core.
