Stunning hypocrisy, and I mean stunning

Baroness Uddin was already a strong candidate for trougher of the year, following revelations that she'd claimed 100 grand from the taxpayers by keeping an empty flat (unfurnished, never lived in, say neighbours) in Kent as her designated residence.

But it gets worse: according to Andrew Gilligan, in the Evening Standard the flat she really lived in was Social Housing - a council flat. The housing association receives a massive subsidy (again, from taxpayers) and can therefore keep the average rent for its properties at around a sixth of the market rate.

Gilligan goes on:

"However, even without her allowances from the Lords, Baroness Uddin, 49, is well above the income bracket to qualify for social housing. She has held a number of highly-remunerated directorships at major companies, including former ITV giant Carlton Television, and was a senior employee and parliamentary consultant for the Excelcare nursing home group"

So not short of a bob or too then? Oh, but there's more:

"Because she claims her main residence is outside London, Lady Uddin is also entitled to collect up to £174 every day she attends the Lords for the cost of accommodation in the capital. The amount is paid to peers without the need to produce receipts and many claim the maximum every day they attend.

Baroness Uddin claimed a total of £29,675 for accommodation in 2007/8, a time when the maximum daily accommodation claim was £165 a day. Her bill represents a claim at the maximum possible rate for 179 days, more days than the Lords actually sat that year"

And, just when CF thought he could not be more dear-god-i'm-going-to-die enraged, this quote, from the trougher herself, (Hat tip to the Ranting King Penguin) came to light:

“My Lords, does my noble friend accept that our policy on homeless families impacts greatly on those who are waiting on the list? Is she aware that about 25,000 families are on the waiting list in east London?"

Why don't you free one up, you grasping bitch?

UPDATE: Old Holborn is behind this great idea: check it now before its taken down.

UPDATE 2: Beautiful Garden just posted this over at Guido's: Spitalsfield Housing Association (the organisation providing this dirt-cheap accommodation to the needy) Board of Management contains:

  • Ala Uddin - Vice-Chair
  • Faruque Uddin - Housing Officer
  • Abdus Uddin - Assistant Maintenance Officer

Complete co-incidence, and no relation, surely?

Ho ho, let's report her to the police!

No, no: your way is so much better. Love it.

What an utterly shameless whore she is. She's also defending her position just to infuriate the public more!

"I strongly deny that I have never lived there. Indeed I have stayed there regularly since buying it," she said. Should the House of Lords authorities wish to investigate the matter I will, of course, co-operate fully."

Now I am asian, born here when my father came here back in the 60s from India. Our whole family have always worked. I've worked all my life in the UK and employed people too. I consider myself to be lucky not to have ever claimed benefit - not ever!! So, I say to Uddin

"Fuck off you benefit-mugging thief. You, like most benefit-claiming pakis in the UK are scum and an embarrassment to humankind"

And I fucking mean it!

This bitch should be shamed and possibly jailed or even better - deported! God knows there's enough of them claiming benefits and multiplying here in the UK. It's a complete disgrace!

I'm sorry for the outburst, but this incident really ticked me off!!

Constantly Furious said...

Don't be sorry for the outburst, Crybaby: we all need to get a lot angrier, and drive these scum into the sea...

Thank you furious!

If I were in Jacqui Smith's position, the doors would be closed to PAKISTAN. They are scum and I dont care what anyone thinks of my "politically incorrect" comments. I've seen first hand how they marry each other to get British residency, then claim, then get a British Passport, then claim more, then have children!

(they shouldnt be allowed to fuck if they dont work) - Why should they enjoy sex and have children and carry on fucking sponging??

While we all have 1 or 2 kids, they have fucking 8 or 9 - On benefits??? And Jacqui carrys on paying them whilst she and her husband wank over a porn film?

Uddin is a paki - these are her roots. It is inherent in their blood to be deceitful. I cannot believe that she was made a PEER? What the fuck was Blair thinking?

The government should boot her out and do it quick. The immigration should close their doors and order these benefit seeking scum to WORK. If they have kids, they should be ordered to WORK because clearly, they are functioning just fine.

Why dont they clean streets? Why do we pay for someone else to do it? If they are claiming, we should change laws so they do community work for their benefits. That'll stop the scum from coming here in their droves. It will, trust me!!!!

If I had the power, I would resolve this shit in one fell swoop.

CryBaby, find a party which will take you on as a candidate otherwise stand as an independent perhaps on a one issue basis.

Inspired idea, Old Holborn. British humour at its best.

Bet Lady Udders gets a slap on the wrist and that her detractors are labelled racist.

Racism charge: almost certainly.

Subrosa, thank you for your comment. I never even considered it because for me, its basic common sense. My friends call me "ruthless" which isnt a good sign I guess? ;)

Furious - your comment regarding racsism charge really gets me going...again.

I can bet my house and car on this, that if we break down the statistics showing the number of immigrants on benefits compared to ethnic minorities versus how many of those fuckers actually work, it will reveal what politians are too scared to state - that a large %age of these are coloured people.

These so-called ethnic minorities are taking the piss out of this country and have been getting away with it.

I know for a fact, that hard-working people, white, black, asian or whatever feel the same level of contempt I do watching these scum-suckers laugh at the UK government whilst cashing in.

Perhaps it will take a coloured person to bring this "sensitive" issue to the surface?

Mind you...anyone but Uddin eh?

@ ConstantlyFurious

The good news is in the Telegraph:

"Labour peer Baroness Uddin faces investigation over £100,000 allowances claims"

Will be watching this space!

Beware of Geeks bearing GIFs said...

I hope she does go down, but I fear the "investigation" will find that it is all "within the rules".

These "vermin in ermine" are like Weebles: they wobble but they don't fall down.

Old Holborn said...

My registered letter to the Housing Assoc arrives tomorrow

Prepare for fun.......

Constantly Furious said...

@OH: most excellent. Looking forward to the reply from one of the 'Uncles' who sorted all this out for her.

What the fuck was Blair thinking?Crybaby, I agree with the first part of your sentence. They ARE deceitful spongers. However the second bit shows stunning naivete. I'll tell you what the fuck Blair was thinking. He was thinking it is great to have a load of sponging Pakistanis in Parliament, because they are GUARANTEED to be loyal to the Labour cause. Who else would open up the floodgates to illegal immigration from Pakistan and other places while collectively fucking the bona fide residents of this country. You seem to imply that making this filthy spomger a PEER of the realm was some kind of "mistake" or "oversight" on the grinning Blair's part. No my friend, I can assure you it wasn't. It was deliberate policy, to dilute the pwer of the British people to decide their own destiny. If you don't believe me, how about Jackui Smith's banning the Dutch MP who was invited by British Parliament to speak because "Lord" Ahmed got into a strop and said he would lead ten thousand Muslims to Parliament and surround it. The cowardly bitch caved in instantly. I can assure you that if it was a peaceful protest by say, ten thousand white Chrsitians against some aspect of Government policy then the baton wielding thugs of the Metwould be merrily smashing their skulls and then going for a curry. Wake up for fuck's sake ! What do you think is happening here ?

@CDL - I will research Blair's motives some more. I dont know enough about why he made her a Peer hence the "what the fuck he thinking" comment, but you reasons make sense to me.

Well at least she doesn't have a home overseas...She does? ...No thats her husbands mansion in Bangladesh it's not hers so it doesn't count. Stop being so beastly to the poor woman...

I would like to borrow Gordon Browns broken moral compass and shove it up her arse...She is a thief, she should be stripped of a title she never deserved made to pay back the £100k and booted out of the sibsidised housing she also should not have been given...Sponging bitch...
