Well, if you think about this logically...
The cost of housing and living in the UK is incredibly high compared to other countries. If you are rich in a poor country, that doesn't mean you will be rich here. £20K might buy you a mansion in parts of SE Asia, but it won't buy you a mobile home in the UK.
So, it is totally reasonable to assume that if someone moves to the UK from such a country they will seldom be able to afford a big house in a nice area. They obviously decided living in a s**thole in England is superior overall to a life of luxury in their motherland or a life of semi-luxury in a cheaper country, they must have their reasons to have moved. If they are clever, work hard and make their fortune then they might be able to afford to live in nice areas. We have no apartheid in the UK, people can buy or rent where they want, provided they can afford it.
My mum has a colleague who was a teacher in South Africa. They had a maid and a big house, in the UK they have a 3-bed semi and no servants. Should we have subsidised them with a £500K grant to leave them with the £800K that their house would cost in that area? Of course not!
In the situation of an asylum seeker, if they are living on the UK tax payers' money then of course they should be living in the cheapest place we can find. If they have somehow managed to bring assets with them (I'm sure that rich people with Swiss bank accounts sometimes need asylum), then they will probably have no hesitation in paying their own way to live more comfortably.
So, it isn't a matter of us not being nice to them, it is a matter that they are poor and can't afford to live in a nice area. It would be great if we had no bad areas in the UK, but there always will be such places, no matter what we do (short of eugenics!). An anglo-saxon asylum seeker claiming asylum in the UK would be treated the same as if they were any other ethnicity.
