one (of many) brit villages want migrants moved out …. a case of spitting into the wind

While the attitude of the villagers is understandable, and not a surprise, I wonder why it took em this long to gripe in this way.
Well, better late than not at all I suppose.
Now the question is .... will anyone respond or do as the villagers wish?

Or .... will the village be hauled into a court and accused of raaaaacism and fined ?

Guess we’ll have to wait and see.  Meanwhile ....

The hard copy headline read as follows.

KICK THE ASYLUM SEEKERS OUT OF OUR HOTEL, SAY FED-UP VILLAGERS

Angry villagers are campaigning to evict some 70 asylum-seekers from a hotel after becoming fed up with a constant stream of arrivals since July.

Hundreds of people from Somalia, Syria and Iraq have been brought to the Britannia Hotel in Standish, near Wigan, over the past four months, waiting for government officials to process their applications.

But it appears locals have grown tired of the delays after creating a Facebook group titled ‘No More Economic Migrants in Britannia Hotel’. It has more than 2,000 members.

Some of the group’s members claim that petty crime and theft has increased in the area since the asylum-seekers’ arrival, an accusation that has been dismissed by police.

Residents have also set up an online petition demanding that the Home Office move the asylum-seekers, who have been staying in a separate section of the hotel to other paying guests.

Though their Facebook group is titled ‘No More Economic Migrants in Britannia Hotel’, those staying there are said to be genuine asylum-seekers.

That means they are entitled to a room to stay in if they have nowhere else to live and £37 a week to live on. However, asylum-seekers cannot choose where in Britain they are housed, and are unable to work or claim benefits.

If their application is granted by the Home Office they become refugees, meaning they can initially stay in the UK for five years, work and claim benefits but not automatically be given housing.

The hotel, where rooms can cost up to £100 a night, has a billiards room, cocktail bar, health club with an indoor heated pool, hot tub and a fitness centre.

The Facebook group’s founder, Ian Adamczyk, 35, said: ‘There are generations who have used their time to make this village safe and secure for their children and grandchildren yet no one in authority has consulted them as to what is going to happen or how they feel about this situation.

‘If people are genuinely fleeing their countries with their family and children, Britain would hold its hands out to them - but there seems to be too many people exploiting our country and just coming here for a better life. Nearly all the people in the hotel are young men.

‘I think there are people in this country that need the help more or at least just as much. We are never going to be able to help every poor person in the whole world.’

On Thursday, in the space of two hours, three minibuses dropped off dozens of men at the back entrance to the hotel.

When approached for a comment, the majority of the men could not speak English, but one woman confirmed she was staying with her husband and young child and the nationalities of residents were ‘Iranian, Syrian, Pakistani and Iraqi.’

Retired industrial engineer David Lowton, 71, who lives next to the hotel, said: ‘I object to them being there. They are in the rooms at the back with their windows constantly open overlooking my house. I imagine some of the older residents don’t feel safe as most of the asylum seekers are young lads.

‘It annoys me that they are here at taxpayers’ expense. They have the windows wide open all of the time and they must have the heating on too - I can’t afford to have the heating on all day.

‘There used to be two or three coach loads of holidaymakers visiting the hotel each week but you wouldn’t see them now.’

Joseph Murphy, 64, who also lives nearby, added: ‘There is a lot of resentment from a lot of people in Standish who think they aren’t a part of the community, they don’t speak our language and they don’t integrate.

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.
