An investigation by The Guardian – yes, The Guardian did something useful! – has just revealed that 100 London councillors have links to the property industry. Some are benefitting financially and some are receiving gifts from other development companies. This is serious corruption.
That’s one in 10 councillors in London having some connection to the housing and development industry – meanwhile, London suffers the biggest housing shortage and overpopulation problem this country has ever seen.
What does this tell us? Well, I think it’s pretty clear that we can no longer trust the big parties on ANYTHING.
