Its sad how councils have no respect for anything but the cash in their pockets. This house should have been preserved through who owned it. It would have been different if a bloody Beatle owned the house though. Overhyped chimps they are. Sid James was the king of comedy!. His memory deserves more respect than that which the council showed. (Big Jim)
