Shelter have installed a "Wall of shame" in Norwich. The have asked members of the public to sign their wall of shame in order to support their criticism of the government's policy on housing.
The charity is calling on the Government to fund and extra 20,000 social homes on top of existing plans to sort out this crisis. They have built a wall outside the Forum in Norwich, and are asking people to add their name to a brick to help get the Government’s attention.
Interestingly, following Lib Dem candidate for Norwich South, Simon Wright, signing a brick on the wall (pictured), Ian Gibson, Labour MP for Norwich North also later added his name to the protest.
Firstly, well done to Ian Gibson, not unknown for criticising his own government. I know Norwich people appreciate his virtues a an MP who stands up for Norwich, even if he does prop up a Labour regime no one likes. But well done to Simon Wright who appears to have led on this.
I guess there is no danger of government lackey and MP Charles Clarke signing the petition ? No, thought not.
