Urgent review of squatter laws
Too many hard-working citizens are facing months of being homeless, irreparable damage to their homes and severe psychological stress after falling victim to squatters. With the expansion of the EU, the problem is only getting worse. The word is out: squatting is OK in Britain.
The Government needs to review this as a matter of urgency. Squatting in someone's property, especially someone's home, should be made illegal. The police should be given powers to physically evict squatters immediately.
