The Joys of Living In A Council House

Full marks to Ayesha Chowdhury (council member of the London Borough of Newham) for once living "as the people do" in a council house.

However, it is rather odd that she chose to do this, as she in fact had a financial interest in a string of properties in Newham worth over £1M:
82 Downing, Beckton, E6 Co-Owner
95 Lonsdale Avenue, East Ham, E6 Co-Owner
6 Truesdale Road, E6 Co-Owner
100 Park Avenue, E6 Co-Owner
199 Tollgate Road Co-Owner
10 Harrier Way, Beckton E6 Co-Owner
27 Trader Road, Beckton, E6 Co-Owner
5 Hogarth Close, Beckton, E6 Co-Owner
47 Plymouth Road, E16 Co-Owner
205 Tollgate Road, Beckton Co-Owner
39 Albert Roase Close, E6 Co-Owner
59 Fourth Avenue E6 Co-Owner
16a Forest Side E7 Co-Owner
18 Eric Close E7 Co-Owner
96a Plashet Grove E7 Co-Owner
5 Chelmsford Close E6 Co-Owner
203 Tollgate Road, Beckton Co-Owner
5a Hogarth Close, Beckton, E6 Co-Owner
Is it not a bit selfish of her to deprive someone who really needs council housing of a place to live, given that she has several addresses at which she could live and that Newham is currently conducting social cleansing in time for the Olympics?

    At current ave valuation they are valued at £4 million plus - of course she can also have plenty more outside the borough that does not need to be disclosed.

  2. And who lives in these properties?
