Blackpool South MP Scott Benton has once again been featured on GB News as part of a report from the streets of Blackpool by the channel’s Security Editor, Mark White. In the report, which was broadcast today (Wednesday 23rd November), GB News say that they have been exclusively told by homeless people on the streets and doorways of Blackpool they feel they’ve become ‘invisible’, as authorities prioritise housing hundreds of channel migrants in hotels while rough sleepers are being left out in the cold.
In the GB News feature, MP Scott Benton (pictured below) says he’ll be on the front line of any protests against new migrant hotels. He told Mark White, ‘My inbox is already full of people who can’t get a council house, can’t get an NHS dentist, a GP appointment, and the idea that you can locate 300 asylum seekers in the UK’s most deprived Ward which is where they are currently being hosted without that wraparound support is complete and utter madness. ‘
