I only made some of the text bold
Yes, I know. But if you are quoting me then you shouldn't amend my quote. If it is a direct quote then even highlighting it is amending it and it then isn't my quotation .
I just don't follow your logic. If as you say CAB is a charity and is voluntarily funded <which I know it is> then it is open to all and the taxpayers aren't funding it .
Oxfam doesn't go round to everyone and say, hey are you a person born in such and such a country, if you aren't then we aren't going to help you.
If I were in a different country and needed some advice, I would hope also there would be a charitable institution that could offer me advice.
The poster didn't say she was unemployed, she merely asked about a Council House. Now whether she is eligible for one or not isn't really up to any of us to know but I see no harm in letting her know where she can go to for advice.
She may well be eligible for tax credits etc if her income is low.
they're cashing their giros and having their rent paid for by the local council.
She only asked about a council house. So people cannot come on and ask for advice on here anymore without being blasted out and accused of all sorts of things. You don't even know the person yet you are treating them as a stereotype !
Lots of people qualify for Housing Association Houses and they aren't subsidised either. Also, there are Council Houses that UK people shun and do not want to occupy. Un let homes lose the Housing Association and Councils valuable revenue, so maybe you should wait before being so judgemental, till all the facts are fully known perhaps ?
why dont you go back to where you came from ?
So profound, bet it took you all day to come up with that.
