Stoke Housing Re-Development FU - Coucil had to decide to repair a Coronation Street like suburb.
- 1. Can't count - The repair option report said it would add £11m to the value of the houses. Instead of setting this off the costs the accountant added it on..making it seem expensive.#
- By the time of the 2006 inquiry the error had been realised, but the decision was made to proceed with a 15 year demolish & redevelop plan.
- Residents reckon they got a raw deal, being moved out of houses they were happy with into worse alternatives. Now that the suburb is 50% full of half demolished pockets, the new gov has stopped the financing. So the other residdents are left living in an area like the Bronx
- what a FU

- Good piece about the secret crypt under the Coventry Cathedral ruins and stained glass masterpiece they still have stored from before the war.

Liddles words hardly likely to influence correctly instructed jury

- Read Rod Liddles blog contempt ? : hardly, I checked it. He mentioned his opinion that other accused in the same case had been overharshly punished in a minor incident cos the murder charge hadn't stuck before.

- Maybe implied that the accused in cause celebre anti-racism cases might get sentences way out of step with the crime, jurors only make decisions on court evidence so his opinion wud not have influence.

- hardly likely to influence correctly instructed jury. Maybe judge was afraid other press might be more inflammatory so he decided to set a line?
