Squat

Here is a story from the UK about a family that was renovating a house. During this process, a group of foreign squatters moved in and refused to leave. The UK government response? Provide legal aid to the squatters to prevent eviction. It’s another aspect of this post about how to create hatred for foreigners. If a reasonable person has to choose between being against immigrants or accepting that unemployed immigrants can effectively steal his house with support of the government, it doesn’t seem so outrageous to end up not liking immigration or immigrants.

Are we to infer that if these people were native born Brits, they could be thrown out?

I am not sure, but I think it is the case that if the squatters were British nationals, they wouldn’t get the government funding to fight the eviction. More generally, they wouldn’t get it in any case if not for EU regulation so this wouldn’t happen if the UK left the EU.
