Sir – We’ve had a “boarded up” Grantham House (Oxford’s answer to the so-called housing crisis) for several years now, as well as a variety of pubs and others.
I see now that the former Jericho Health Centre is sporting a shiny set of window and door steel. Perhaps our potential squatters are incredibly strong and/or our occupancy laws so incredibly weak that such measures are deemed necessary. Do you think those Olympic visitors who are not putting their bottoms on stadium seats might be coming here for a visit? Might they think they were in Detroit?!
