I would like to propose a solution to the Migrant accommodation crisis
Please forward on to all your email contacts especially your MP – if he is friendly.
Due to the Covid Crisis the Government is pushing through law that has not gone through Parliament as it is a National Crisis.
We also have a National Crisis of accommodating illegal migrants. There is now a desperate shortage of 5* hotels and barracks are not up to the standard the migrants expect.
When my dad was demobbed in 1945 and he came home there were plenty of bomb sites but few houses. The Billeting Act of 1679 was still in force and there were billeting officials who would select any house suitable to billet ex-soldiers and their families in. We were billeted one room of a 3 bed bungalow in Shoreham Kent. The householder was furious. He had spent the war behind a desk working for the council. We were only allowed to stay in the one room and use the toilet. He did not want an ex-soldier and his family in his house. We had to give them our ration books for them to collect our food. By some curious quirk they were allowed to keep our jam, eggs and cheese for themselves. I believe they had to cook our food.
