Can Jeremy Corbyn solve the housing crisis?


I was Jeremy's paired RIBA Architectural adviser for 5 years before I learned that the RIBA had barred both Jeremy and myself from future RIBA meetings at the House of Commons for our left wing views. This was as ironic then as it is now, as Jeremy Corbyn was one of the few MP's guaranteed to turn up for a discussion of architecture at the House of Commons, and clearly the point of the RIBA in hosting these meetings was to get MP's interested, and to attend. I continue to have a very positive relationship with Jeremy and welcome his refreshing views on Housing and Planning. It is also worth noting Jeremy wrote to the RIBA, critical of their position in the RIBA London election scandal which I was obliged to bring to the attention of the Charities Commission. I support the AJ's spotlight on Corbyn. Chris Roche Founder 11.04 Architects / Former Deputy Chair RIBA London
