Fred Wigg and John Walsh Towers, again

If you want to understand the tower blocks issue, and why the Council’s plans have aroused such anger from local people, this is worth a listen:

Given what has happened, is it any wonder that Cann Hall Labour Party, with two councillors present, unanimously passed a motion condemning the Council’s consultation with Fredjohn tenants, and called upon it to delay any decision until there had been ‘a thorough consultation process which involves the appointment of Independent Tenant Advisors’?

Of course, what we need to know now is why the two councillors won’t repeat in public what they said behind closed doors; and why the Labour hierarchy feels able to ignore what their own local members think.
