Newtown Neuroses

A interesting NME feature where Attila looks at what’s happening in the new towns across England.
The politics were grim then, as Attila points out.
Slum clearance was a good thing and the new towns were part of that, if not perfect. Since then ‘social cleansing’, or ‘decanting’ as the Toffs would have it, is the issue. These days we don’t even get new towns to live in once we’re turfed out of where we live.
