I’m at the launch of #digslaunch I’ve discovered a Lewisham Council Officer who is brilliant and he has never been introduced to councillorsPaul Bell
Ben reeves Lewis- the government don’t give a toss about you, renters need to get together and work together. #DigslaunchDigs
#DigsLaunch Hearing some horror stories about private landlords but great turnout and vibe..’building a force for change’? Think so!Andrea Enisuoh
Tenants will have to work with the council to address tenants issues because the government does not care #digslaunchJohn Page
‘Councils rolling up their sleeves and working with landlords is the answer’ ben reeves lewis @ #digslaunchDigs

Wales is the place to be as they are going to be introducing licensing. There’s a joke about leeky roofs somewhere #digslaunchDigs
71% of landlords in London are buy to let #DigsLaunchMel Evans
#DigsLaunch How do we organise to protect private tenants? Tenant Rights groups can play a major part says first speaker at launch of Digs!Hackney Unites
Wales has licensing for landlords, Scotland outlawed agency fees, England’s way behind #DigsLaunchMel Evans
‘Judiciary and police aren’t dealing with bad landlords. Private tenant groups, landlord education and licensing are helping’ #digslaunchDigs
Ben reeves Lewis, an amazing speaker, helps launch digs. He’s setting the scene for private tenants. Change is needed. #digslaunchDigs
