I think the Scientologists are deliberately keeping their Northumbria Idle in a rather dilapidated condition (burnt out and with sheeting covering the holes in the roof) just so they have an excuse not to pay rates on the property. I personally think that they set fire to the building themselves to manoeuvre themselves into this favourable position. But this is revenue lost to the tax coffers that the British public must compensate for with higher taxes and reduced services. Why haven't they sold the building if they don't need it? Then the money for rates can flow in. This is a disgrace and everybody in Gateshead and British taxpayers the country over have to pay for this.
