If you are right Dizzydi. Squatting in a residential building like a house or flat is illegal now.
Squatting in non-residential properties
A non-residential property is any building or land that isnâ??t designed to be lived in.
Simply being on another personâ??s non-residential property without their permission is not usually a crime. But if squatters commit other crimes when entering or staying in a property, the police can take action against them.
These crimes could include:
causing damage when entering the property
causing damage while in the property
not leaving when theyâ??re told to by a court
stealing from the property
using utilities like electricity or gas without permission
not complying with a noise abatement notice

Sorry to reveal my ignorance, but what happened to Blakers then? Aren't they there any more?

They always find an open door or window. The police can do nothing. With my previous job I've had my fill of the scum. Only one way to deal with the situation!

You're right, of course, Ducatipete: Residential accommodation left unoccupied for an unreasonable amount of time should be taken over and allocated to the homeless. The only way to solve the problem. Non-residential premises should be converted to residential, for the same purpose.

Clifford you are correct but before breaking into the property find the owner and ask if they mind us occupying until a buyer has been found. We promise not to cause any damage and will leave it clean and tidy as we found it.

...I saw that one of their transit vans was parked with nobody in it, and I decided that it was OK for me to break into it and use it to go to work in? No difference really, but that would be stealing. So why is this OK? The owner of that building is trying to rent it out, hence the prominent 'To Let' sign on the front of it. Who would take it on now? Why should the owner of the building pay to put a roof over these peoples heads? I don't for one minute think that the people in there are homeless, have you seen them? It's just a bunch of freeloaders who think it's their right to take advantage of someone else's property and sell 'anti-capitalist' vegetables and teas, whatever that might mean!
