James Naughtie being a plonker on the Today Programme on BBC Radio 4 this morning when he tried to bully Harriet Harman into saying what went wrong with the Labour campaign....just 3 days after what all pundits....Naughtie included....admit was a complete surprise election result. Harman plays a wonderfully straight bat. #Impressed  
Acting leader of the Labour Party does a great job of standing up to the ridiculous, smug James Naughtie on the Today Programme. #BBC , #Today #HarrietHarman #Labour #sigh #JamesNaughtie

Some familiar issues....old social housing with damp and mould. Some interesting ideas about community resources about 5 minutes in.......but this still feels very much like a community being 'done to' by the landlord....albeit with good intentions.
