Arguments at CityWest: finding a silver lining

It is disappointing to read about the boardroom problems at CityWest Homes (the arm’s length management organisation that manages council housing for Westminster Council). While I do not know enough to take sides (even if I wanted to), events there do demonstrate that ALMOs are not an example of “privatisation”. For good or ill, ALMOs have close links with and accountability to their parent local authorities.
