Manchester United stars Neville and Giggs tell hotel squatters: stay for winter.

Well done Gary Neville & Ryan Giggs. Here’s a great story where these two ex-footballers got planning permission to turn the historic Manchester stock exchange into a boutique hotel replete with basement gym, spa & rooftop private members’ terrace. They envisaged opening it up to an exclusive & moneyed clientele. Instead, a group of homeless people with little or no money have moved in – with Neville’s blessing.

 

The hotel, which is undergoing extensive renovations before opening its doors to paying guests, was occupied on Sunday by a group of squatters and housing activists called the Manchester Angels. Instead of the usual response of property owners – rushing to court to obtain an order to get the uninvited new incumbents evicted – the famous ex-footballers who own the building have told them they can stay, not just for a few days, but throughout the coldest months of the winter. Check out the video in the link…
