Lets do away with Squatters Rights!

Yes, the government is going to make it illegal to squat in domestic property, however this is a bit of a weak answer and it doesn’t actually help where the morons have taken over a commercial property such as the UBS building in London. As such I would like to propose an alternative solution – Remove the offence of squatting.

If you remove the offence of squatting, then you can simply rewrite the laws regarding tresspassing to say that if you are on private property and the landlord or owner of said property has asked you to leave (even if they had invited you in earlier), then in the absence of a signed tenancy agreement you may be arrested and removed from the property without the need for a court order. This is quick, simple and effective for vitually all types of property and situation.
