Come over and join in me soft-touch Britain, says foreign squatter. And so they did. Look at this.

Here’s another story on the subject of how easy it is to squat on another’s property, here in squatters paradise.
The reason I’m posting this is because there’s a somewhat newer twist.

There are something like 14 or 15 photos that go with this article.

At first, when I read the hard copy this morning I was really angry with the slobs. Still not happy with them but, the reason they’re here and doing what you will read and see for yourself is .... the UK system of law that makes it so easy.  Called “Squatters Rights” I do believe. If wrong, Lyndon will correct me I know.

These folks are enabled and indeed encouraged by a lax and outdated system. They’ve no money we know of and no worries about the law (which I believe they know) or anyone coming after them with a gun.  So then, anyone surprised that they’re “Doin’ what comes naturally?”

This sort of thing could of course be stopped dead in it’s tracks very quickly. Take em out, tie em to stakes and burn slowly to the music of Spike Jones playing “My Old Flame.” Make a video, with sound naturally, and distribute to those places where they come from. In fact, make it public enough so that any would be squatters would know the eventual price of their (brief) squat. 
No need then for court time, no need for lawyers and appeals and judges having to pontificate. The savings in legal fees alone would be well worth it.

Oh yeah, I’d also send a bill to their home countries for waste disposal.

Come over and join in me soft-touch Britain, says the Latvian who traveled 1,500miles and ended up squatting in a £6m mansion

By Paul Bentley

With its ten bedrooms, marble bathrooms and modern high-spec kitchen it is a property fit for a top ­executive or celebrity.

But yesterday it was home to 30 Eastern Europeans who flocked 1,000 miles to London when they heard how Britain was such a soft touch for squatters.

The gang of immigrants are living for free in the £6million former home of an ITV boss in North London.

They left their home countries and moved in after friends told them the rights of squatters are so entrenched in the UK that it would be ‘almost impossible’ to force them out.

Many of the young foreigners, mainly from Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, broke through a window of the mansion on Boxing Day and have put up legal notices claiming it is their ‘right’ to stay.

They have plastered the property with posters threatening to prosecute anyone who enters without permission.

The ten-bedroom house in Highgate was owned until July last year by John Ormerod, 61, a director of several leading UK companies who also chairs the audit committee at ITV, and his wife Pamela, a magistrate.

The warning posters, on the door and windows, read: ‘Take notice. That we live in this property, it is our home and we intend to stay here.’

Once finely decorated, the house now resembles a refugee camp, with the 30 squatters, many of whom are jobless, littering the floors with ­rubbish and smoking drugs freely.

The gang, aged from 19 to 50, have been given a court order to leave by January 19, but they boast about their intentions to stay on – if they don’t upgrade to a bigger home nearby.

It was a Latvian calling himself ‘Jason Ruddick’ who first broke into the house. He had travelled to London because he had heard it was easy to live in mansions for free in the UK.

Some of the bedrooms have marble en suite bathrooms and Jason, who moved to the UK a year ago, has set up a makeshift office in one.

The jobless 21-year-old said: ‘I knew before I came that people live in squats and have legal protection.

‘Here we have heating and electricity all for free. The bills come in the post but they are addressed to the old owners. We don’t pay them.

‘There are four floors in the house. Ten bedrooms. There are three bathrooms with bathtubs and showers, a kitchen with all the cooking facilities, heating – and all the utilities are on. And there is a big garden with a swing. It’s really expensive to live in such a big house if you have to pay for it. But in the UK we get everything for free. Even food.

‘We always have a full fridge. We go to Iceland and get all the good food from the rubbish bins. It’s called “skipping”. We get sausage rolls, pies and beer from there. When one can is damaged they throw out the whole pack. It’s easy. I like it in Highgate. The area is nice. It is close to Hampstead Heath. If they make me leave I will find a bigger place in the area.’

Jason is from the Latvian capital of Riga, where he also did not work.

He said he chose to come to England because in other countries squatters are routinely arrested and hauled before the courts.

‘Here I can live in a big house for free,’ he said. ‘I was the first one here but I told all my friends about it. We tell everyone back home about it.’

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
