Landlords have found a friend in the unlikely form of publisher Eddy Shah who has vowed to take on ‘cowboy builders’ in his blog.
Mr Shah who doesn’t to believe in damning with faint praise has announced in his blog that “construction workers are lazy and incompetent”.
The media mogul turned property developer believes the construction industry is worse than the old print unions he took to task twenty five years ago.
Mr Shah says in his blog: “It is easy to blame planners, government policies, petty officials and big businesses with their inefficient bureaucratic structures and lack of dynamic management. They do not help, but they are not the root cause of our high prices and shoddy building.
That, I have learnt, falls at the feet of our construction workers. They are lazy and incompetent, often working no more than five hours a day. Shoddy in their workmanship, they have no pride in their efforts and spend more time avoiding work than doing it.
If they spent the same effort working as they do ducking out of work, we would have one of the most efficient construction industries in the world.”
