Most people probably can’t imagine the government offering them a five-bedroom home – rent free – under any circumstances, but the idea of rejecting the offer because the home is not big enough and doesn’t have a dining room, seems unthinkable.

So when a French family turned down not one, not two, but three new homes offered by the local council in Bedfordshire, England, it was hard to believe – and hard to swallow for taxpayers who are footing the bill for such generosity by the government shown to foreign families.

The taxpayers may also be grumpy now that is it known that they paid for Arnold Malle Sube, his wife and their eight children to stay in a $200 suite at a Hilton hotel for four months while the council tried to find a home that suited Sube’s requirements.

The final bill for the hotel stay was $50,000, but of course that doesn’t include the $28,000 for room service that the family required.

Sube says the family needs “at least six double bedrooms to live comfortably,” and claims, “me and my family have been neglected. The council is trying to make things hard for us. My wife is a full-time mother and I am a student. They're just making excuses.”

He has hired an attorney to take action against the council to get the home the family deserves, in addition to the $60,000 in benefits and childcare credits.

The Luton Borough Council isn’t sympathizing, issuing a statement that read, “After a generous offer on our part, we have done our bit and if housing is offered and declined without, what we judge, good reason, then we will offer property to another family.”

Maybe the next family will find the rent-free five-bedroom home more to its liking – even though it doesn’t have a formal dining room.

Meantime, the Subes and their eight kids face eviction because he can’t possibly consider forcing his children to live in the small home the British taxpayers are offering.
