Oh Cllr James Alexander, how can you pontificate about housing? You have let the university grow and grow and all those students now rent the “affordable” housing.

Just think of all the council tax that does not get paid on all those student lets.

Still as long as the tourists to York and the university are happy, it seems that we the residents can go hang.

Hazel Ward, Badger Hill, York.

James Alexander's Top Ten Priorities:-

1. Himself and his massive ego!
2. Labour party dogma.
3. Twitter.
4. York Uni
5. St John Uni
6. Tourism
7. Dieting
8. Overseas travel on expenses
9. Blocking people on twitter.
10. Gagging and disallowing free speech

York & its residents are just an annoyance to this self-centred, left wing ideologist.

I thought the Council was reimbursed from central government for most of the council tax lost to student lets.
