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.

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.

"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."
