A housing organisation called Acorn, established to represent the rights of low income families living in rented properties held a protest outside St James’ Park yesterday regarding a client of theirs in Birmingham.
You might wonder what this has to do with anything with Newcastle United but it transpires Steve Bruce is involved with a property in Birmingham. In a series of social media posts Acorn explained their position regards Steve Bruce and a single parent who is on the point of eviction from a property in Birmingham:
He might just about keep Newcastle up but we won’t let Steve Bruce evict our member, Zahra, a mum of 2 kids who were hospitalised due to the mould and damp in the home they rent from him.
Looks like Steve has been spending too much time with Mike Ashley🤔 https://t.co/6hXxPWOWaQ
