Tower Hamlets needs social housing,
not a Mayor that is in the pockets of
luxury property developers
No more luxury flats
Requisition the empty towers NOW.
Weeks have now gone by, the Covid19 virus is spreading fast and it is now killing our friends and neighbours, and we cannot yet see any end in sight.
The entire country, in fact most of the entire world, has been told to stay home and stay safe.
Yet the construction sites, building luxury flats for overseas investors, remain open. Their workers travelling to and from work, spreading disease.
Where are our politicians? They’re in the pockets of the luxury property developers.
When this is over, the directors of property developers like Guinness Homes, Mount Anvil and Vastint UK, need to be prosecuted for ignoring the lockdown imposed upon the rest of us. They are fully aware of what they are doing, and they need to be held to account for murder.
If they can carry on as usual, why can’t we?
Luxury investment properties are not essential works, and it’s time they were seized and used as social housing.
Balfron Tower is now near complete-146 flats stolen from the people of Tower Hamlets are just sitting empty, awaiting investors.
If our politicians weren’t in the developers pockets, they would do what any decent Labour politician should do- condemn the developers and requisition the towers.
