I think the fact that they had degenerated into some of the most appaling slums in Europe their demolition was welcomed by the masses (although the break up of communities wasn’t).

Oh yeah trot out the old ‘appalling slums’ line. Look I know all about the slums. My grandfather’s street, Hardwicke Street, was demolished for slum clearance. There were obviously some raging philistines around if this street and the crescent in front of St. George’s Church was demolished ……. not even bricked up if it had to be evacuated.
