Jeremy Ireland seems to have his own "fluffy bunny fantasy" about students (Letters, July 7). If "socially responsible" students have brought such regeneration to Belfast, Glasgow and Leeds, one wonders why these local authorities (not to mention Birmingham, Durham, Loughborough, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield, Dundee and St Andrews, and so on) have brought in policies to control student housing and why communities in 30 university towns have lobbied for them to do so? And why have univer-sities published a 47-point checklist on coping with studentification? Puzzling, isn't it?
