Jackie is in denial

Have your say

I had to write to correct a recent letter you printed from ‘Jackie’. She is obviously deluded or in denial about Burngreave.

I am a landlord and, against my better judgement, allowed a family of nine to rent one of a dozen houses I own in the area.

I am working class and proud. I don’t wish to go into details, but I was left out of pocket by many hundreds of pounds due to the ongoing repairs I had to deal with from tenants who have no respect for other people’s property.

It seems benefit claimants think they should have everything decent people have worked hard for.

In my day, respect had to be earned before it was given.

They should get off their backsides and look for work instead of a hand-out.
