I’VE been reading, with disgust, the way this council is ruining the market and shops in Birkenhead.

Why do they insist on putting up the rents all the time?

They know how bad it’s been this last year, but no - money, money money!

Goodness. Isn’t it better with low rent than no rent? If they opened somewhere else, the rent’s going to be too high anyway. Birkenhead is a ghost town now, even worse later.
