If what they were looking for was some form of 'peer support' worker who
would be bound by other tenants' wishes in carrying out their job, this
wouldn't be such a bad thing. Instead it appears what is being proposed here
is someone who will serve at times as an extension to the police and 'mental
health' industry inside this building - in other words, a spy.
