MP for Ealing Central, Angie Bray, has confirmed reports the borough are to import Igloos from Greenland in a bid to increase affordable housing in the area.
Ealing is currently in the midst of a housing crisis, likely to be impacted further by the recent changes to Housing benefit announced at the Budget.
Thousands of Inuits have been evicted from their homes to allow the excavation work to proceed.
Council worker Sheila Baste said, 'This is a very sensitive topic for those residing in the borough of Ealing, with some feeling the population is high enough without encouraging more to target a council deemed by many as a soft touch.'
Ealing Common is the proposed location for the igloos, with planning permission granted for some up to five stories high. Work on lift shafts is said to have commenced some weeks ago with locals enraged at the lack of consultation.
Commoner Charlie Buck said, 'We were lead to believe that this was Thames water conducting surveys of the area, only to find that was not the case. We are disgusted at the deceit of Ealing Borough council.'
Angie Bray denied reports that this was an immigration programme agreed between the two countries to re-house anti-social Inuits on British shores.
'There is simply no way we would agree to such a thing, we have enough social unrest in the borough as it is. Besides, they simply aren't agressive enough to fit in.'
