Unsound bite

No blushes were spared at the British Property Federation’s residential conference in London last week. Mark Loveday from Hammersmith and Fulham Council took his seat at a pre-conference dinner and while tucking in, was asked by the guest on his right what he thought of landlord licensing, a concept advocated by keynote speaker Dr Julie Rugg.

Loveday’s loud opinion was that it was a Stalinist idea and that anyone who thought it was good needed their head examined. At this point Loveday was introduced to the woman on his left – none other than Dr Julie Rugg. Oops.
