Shameless French family-of-10 demand MANSION: Benefits dad rejects 5-bed as ‘too cramped’

A JOBLESS migrant couple with eight children turned down a five-bed home on the taxpayer – insisting they needed a house with six doubles.


Arnold and Jeanne Sube, originally from Cameroon in west Africa, live in a three-bed semi costing the state more than £15,000 a year.

But when Luton council came up with the extra two bedrooms, the couple insisted the house on offer was still not big enough.

Labour councillor Tom Shaw said: “People have to realise we are in the middle of a national housing crisis.

“We have more than 10,000 people on the waiting list and 1,000 in temporary accommodation.

“This family are living in a large three-bed house. We managed to find them a large four-bed house and then a five-bed, which they turned down.

“We can’t be any more sympathetic. We can’t just magic the property people want out of thin air.”

Michael Garrett, Tory leader on the council, added: “There are not many five-bedroom council houses in Luton and they were lucky to be offered one. I haven’t a lot of sympathy for them.”
