More responses to that controversial article in the Independent, calling the Cally a ‘war zone’.
The Tribune has an article “Storm over ‘war zone’ jibe”, with responses from civic leaders and myself. They also print the joint letter from council leader Terry Stacy, Labour councillor Paul Convery and local priest Fr Jim Kennedy referred to in my earlier posting.
Perhaps the best comment came on the Newsvine:
“As someone that lives in the local area, this whole story seemed to be a bit over the top really. It’s certainly not a war zone – god, I shudder to think how quickly residents of Basra would house swap for someone living 10 minutes from King’s Cross!”
