I am sorry but I personally don't have any sympathy. Perhaps she might have thought about the consequences of getting herself knocked up at such a young age and then expecting a lovely 'free' house to live in at my and others tax payers expense.

Neither do I have any sympathy.
If she and others like her behaved more responsibly and didn't use their chidren as a passport to housing and beefits at our expense then there would be more funds for real hardship cases.
She should be looking to the father to support her.

Maybe you should have renamed this thread ‘Should single-pregnant-women be given council property because they are pregnant?’ Is this a quick way for a single person to get property they wouldn’t normally get. That would make a better topic debate.


The bad condition of this girls living conditions is a different matter. Sovereign has responsibility to all their property.

I agree, no sympathy! It drives me up the wall seeing all these youths getting pregnant with the full intention of getting a free house. I wouldn't dream of getting pregnant until I have a stable full time job where i'll be able to get maternity pay and have a job waiting for me when I'm ready! I also wouldn't have a child with someone who wouldn't be able to support me (or with someone I wasn't married to even!)

Sovereign Housing Association have duty of care and their performance is getting worse in this regard. The bigger they get, the more aloof they are getting. They spend tax payers money and should ensure a reasonable service.

As for the 'girl' being entitled to a home, that's for a different thread.

But why does she think that complaining to the media is going to gain her any sympathy?

The ‘bigger they get’ is so true. I used to be on their Tenants housing association and when they were small it worked. Once they got powerful they started dictating to us, instead of listening to us. Eventually it disbanded.

That will probably mean you will struggle, even though you are being sensible. If you did what this girl had done they'd be falling over backwards for you; extra money, house etc.

No, it will mean she will get her home repaired to the standards she wants. In other words she hopes to embarrass Sovereign into fixing her problem.

Yes, this is a parasitic attitude the has become to be considered acceptable.

She read the 'news' about the woman & her 20p parking underpayment.

Think about the child.

What, like she has you mean.
Yours is exactly the response she is looking for and probably why she allowed herself to get pregnant.
This sort of sponging off of the tax paying society has to be stopped.

But your'e right, the child needs to be considered and I would hope Social Services will be keeping an eye on this situation.

From story
QUOTE
He added: “Sovereign discussed the problems Miss Thatcher was experiencing with damp during their last visit to the property and she was advised to ventilate the property regularly.
“It was also noted that the lounge is suffering from extreme condensation because the room is occupied 24/7 and is not ventilated sufficiently which is a major cause of the damp problems.


Looking at the photo it would appear the it windows are uPVC with locks. Therefore they can be opened and locked in that state:

QUOTE
“I leave them open as often as I can but won’t leave the downstairs windows open at night because someone could break in.


I don't know about you, but this time of year, my upstairs windows are open 99.9% of the time.

Is this a case of hanging up washing indoors with no airflow?

Reading the article fully, it would appear that she has lived there for 2 years already and is now pregnant. It would therefore appear that despite some of the rantings on here, she didn't get pregnant to get a house - she already had the house when she got pregnant.

So how did a 17-year old get a housing association property?

I'm sure someone on here will assert they know the reason why. There's usually a gobsh*te on here that can type faster than they can think.

Sympathy? She just wants SHA to deal with the damp it would seem, which if not dealt with, will mean more taxpayers money being used to affect remedial work. Big institutions tend not to act until they start to get bad publicity.
