Disappointed at property propaganda story

I write to express my disappointment that you should print propaganda from the commercial property industry, that has nothing good to say about our town – Property page, July 17: “High Streets...can’t cope”.

The mix of fact and totally biased opinion was unremitting, negative and suggested every high street was destined to be annihilated by the shopping centres Nick Round makes his living from promoting.

This was neither freedom of speech, nor simple advertising, although I’m sure Mr Round’s company was more than pleased to get the free advertising.
