Me, the church and its property portfolio | Letter from the Rev Paul Nicolson

In the Rev Paul Nicolson, a letter writer from America chose the wrong person to attack on the Church of England’s management of its propertyI am strongly miffed that the Guardian should publish a letter (5 August) from Dr Neil J Young defending UK landlords from an address in Pennsylvania, USA. He chose the wrong target. I pay rent, income and council tax. I own no second home. He ties me into the Church of England’s management of its property when it is totally outside my control.
