An unemployed migrant family with 8 children refused to stay at home because there was no canteen thereBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/an-unemployed-migrant-family-with-8-children-refused-to-stay-at-home-because-there-was-no-canteen-there
Arnold Sube, 33, and his wife Jean, with their eight children, live in a three-bedroom house with a terrace in Luton, Bedfordshire, and call this place "the worst place they have ever lived." The Sube family demands a six-bedroom house from the city authorities and has already refused three offers, two of which they have not even looked at, despite the fact that they may be homeless through their own fault.
Last year, the family received 100,000 pounds of benefits, and while they were waiting to move to the house where they now live, Luton City Council placed them for 4 months at the local Hampton by Hilton hotel.

Now an ultimatum has been given to a large family — either they agree to an official offer from the authorities to move into a house with 4 or 5 bedrooms, or they will find themselves homeless and they will have to find a place to live themselves in the private rental market.
One of the options that the family rejected.
A living room in their current home, also provided by the local authorities.
Mr. Sube was born and raised in Cameroon, moved to France at the age of 18, and then moved to the UK with his family in 2012 to be able to study nursing in psychiatry at the University of Bedfordshire.
The family claims that the living conditions in the current house are "terrible." But they still refused the chance to live somewhere else due to the fact that there is not enough space in the new houses and there is not even a dining room.
"My family and I are ignored, we live in three bedrooms, and there are 10 of us," says Arnold Sube.
"The city authorities make our life even harder, my wife is a housewife, and I am a student. They're just looking for excuses, and we need a spacious house with enough rooms."
Luton City Council said the family had been found a suitable home, but declined the offer for no good reason.
