As understand it they were moved from one temporary accommodation to another temporary accommodation and that is the basis for the legal challenge. If you go in the gvt website it does say that you will unlikely be given housing in london or the south east. It was always therefore likely that...

Tonight I’ll go to my mates for dinner if his mum gives me a sandwich instead of steak I’ll tell her it’s not acceptable and demand steak! Let’s see how I get on!
