Green Council Must Stop Promoting Squatting


Mike has condemned the Green administration for encouraging people to squat in the homes of his constituents.

Mike recently wrote to John Barradell, Chief Executive of Brighton & Hove City Council, over the Council’s behaviour in promoting squatting in the city. Over the last few months, Mike has been contacted by a number of residents who were shocked at the advice that they had been given by the Council whilst looking for accommodation.

Commenting, Mike said: “It is completely outrageous that Brighton & Hove City Council are telling families in some cases that they should either squat of face sleeping on the streets. Given that I am working hard in Parliament to have squatting criminalised, it is a complete step backwards that our local authority is sending this kind of message. It is another crazy Green experiment on the people of Brighton & Hove.”
