Victoria = Boris’s first victim

Is it incidential that the Victoria Derbyshire program gets shut as soon as the Conservatives have gained an enormous majority?

Victoria Derbyshire was the only program that gave detailed insights into grassroots problems.

It took a TV disclosure that Barnet council realised how bad housing conditions in one of their blocks was. Now they suddenly want to re-house residents in the block.

Victoria Derbyshire is important reality TV and compared to Call the Midwife, show cases actual events with poor people suffering from policies and managerial problems.

I have stopped watching ‘Call the Midwife’, which seems to show caring nuns. I never came across caring nuns in my lifetime. Perhaps that program is supposed to be attractive to foreign viewers who have no healthcare whatsoever.

Back to housing. I appreciate that in Tower Hamlets, the council and housing providers make much more efforts to keep residents in good stead. Of course Barnet, a Conservative led council shows less concern.

Find it though slightly concerning that the method of public housing admin has similar models in Barnet and in Tower Hamlets.

Barnet has Barnet Homes and Tower Hamlets has Tower Hamlets Homes. Councillors in Tower Hamlets opposed the elongation of the Tower Hamlets Homes housing contract, they wanted housing to get back in-house with the council.
