From founder member and former chair Irene Strange, when asked about the current HMO witch hunt , "HOW WE STRUGGLED IN THOSE EARLY DAYS, Twenty weeks sometimes without payment to claimants or Landlords of HMO's "
"I remember how I led a Placarded Demo around the Guildhall Square with Both Landlords and Claimants, in order to make PCC pay out the Housing Benefits rents before Landlords went Bust and claimants were actually back out ' on the street' .
We won our rights and were paid out forthwith.
It was a really long hard struggle in those days.
Is it any better today I wonder. ???."
