Housing needy one-nil down
11:21am Monday 15th October 2012 in Letters
LAST year a tree was to be demolished and people came from miles around to protest and sit in the tree to try and prevent its demise. There was radio, television, local and national press.
You could not watch or read news without it being in your face.
At the time of writing there are up to 200 units of affordable housing on the nurses’ homes near Bootham Hospital site being demolished. I cannot vouch for any newts on site, but I would bet money there are bats just settling down for their last hibernation.
And the response from Call Me Dave’s Big Society: Zilch.
Well at least it may stop that Matthew Laverack from thinking that just because you talk sense you will be listened to.
Congratulations: Lunatics 1, affordable housing needy 0.
