Tearing down good homes

Have your say

So Steve Wilson (Once a destroyer, Jan 31) finally admits that Labour was party to the demolition of thousands of council homes.

As North Sheffield Action Group and then Defend Council Housing, we fought to prevent their destruction while Labour blamed the Lib Dems. The Lib Dems called anti-demolition demonstrators ‘Luddites’ but our fears have proved well founded.

Surely we have to worry when a council of any political hue tears down good, solid houses leaving much older, cramped ones standing.
