The propaganda materials that Newham Council were putting around yesterday really made me angry. I wonder whether all those overcrowded properties in Newham they talk about are all owned by criminals? Just suppose a poor quality letting agent was to take on one dodgy tenant who subsequently sublet. The landlord would be desperate to get the tenants out but this could take months if the legal protocols were followed. I wonder whether, if the landlord were to call Environmental Health and ask them to shut the property down, whether they would? I doubt that would actually happen. It would put an immediate end to the problem for the landlord in terms of getting the occupiers out but the council would then have to re-house the tenants at their cost. Do you think they would do it or would they seize the opportunity to take pictures for the ongoing propaganda?
