Britain’s biggest buy-to-let landlord shuns Asian, Pakistani, Indian & other coloured people from renting his properties because they smell like curry.
• Fergus Wilson says he doesn’t want to get some chemicals to take the curry smell out or replace the carpet where it sticks at the end of the tenancy.
• His racist remarks & “outrageous ‘coloured’ people ban” led the Equality & Human Rights Commission to investigate & consider taking legal action.
• In January, Wilson banned “battered wives” from renting his property, claiming their abusers often kicked in doors and damaged the property.
• Some people have suggested Wilson’s remarks were a publicity stunt to help him sell his huge portfolio of property.
