Letter: Re Councillor Farnell on what price on human life?

Date published: 23 November 2017

Dear Editor,

What a pathetic letter from Councillor Farnell (What Price on Human Life? – 20/11/2017).

A cynical political dig if ever there was one – and using human tragedy at that.

It is a pity Councillor Farnell did not have such concerns as he boasted about the demolition and rebuilding of the privately-owned Strand shopping parade, which is in his own ward.

The £7 million cost for this vanity project included a contribution of £5.4 million from Rochdale Council.

How many sprinklers could that money have paid for?
