Mega landlord Albo doubles rent for tenant


Ah yes, the truth is ugly when it presents itself bald-faced:

Anthony Albanese has broken his silence on his decision to serve an eviction notice to a longstanding tenant, revealing the reason for kicking the man out is all about his “changing circumstances” and his wedding to partner Jodi Haydon.

But he’s accused tenant Jim Flanagan, 45, of failing to engage with the real estate agent about resolving the matter after he went public with his plea for mercy.

The Prime Minister, who was grilled on the dispute during a breakfast radio interview, also claimed he was giving him a cut price deal that was “half” the going rate for the property.

“Does he have to leave?” ABC Radio National host Patricia Karvelas asked.

He does because his speculator landlord, who owns four residential properties, wants to double the rent.

It doesn’t matter if Albo intends to live in it himself. He wants to avoid paying the astronomical rents he’s engineered via wildly out-of-control immigration as an alternative. His current tenet will not.

I would be disgusted, but I can’t be any more so. This pathetic little man dedicated to the destruction of his nation should be shipped off the continent via the soonest available conveyance.
