Just before I went to bed early this morning, I saw this ridiculous story about Oldham Council have destroyed a 175 year old church in their town “because they were worried about it attracting vandalism”.
Absolute fucking madness.
I’m sorry but I don’t buy it. Oldham council demolish it so it doesn’t get vandalised? That’s a pretext, not a reasonhttps://t.co/jgnxqLEJpZ

Also covered in the local news, which unlike The Times isn’t behind a paywall.
Many people are pissed off at Oldham Council for this move for destroying history (I certainly wouldn’t invest there now if I was in a position of having a business looking for locations to expand into).
Oldham Council demolish a 175 year old church in a part of town colonised by Muslims. This will happen EVERYWHERE unless people wake the f*ck up @Jeremy_Starship
