On AOL UK we appreciate that our readers love to comment on the biggest news, entertainment and sports stories of the day.

Each week, our editors keep an eye out for the most insightful, kind or humorous comments left under our most popular articles.

We then pick one of these comments to award our ‘Comment of the Week’ blue badge.

This week’s winner is Gerry who was commenting on the article: Five luxury £1m mansions demolished after they all breached planning laws

Thanks for your comment, Gerry, deterrence and not setting a precedent of weak enforcement does appear to be key here.
