"Tenants of a tight-knit housing estate threatened with demolition are fuming over incendiary comments made by the Council's housing chief about "ghettoes" that can be "full of fear and paranoia."

A Labour activist from that part of town points out to me that K&C leader Merrick Cockell was on the guest list for the semi-legendary Stephen Greenhalgh-Localis round table discussion about Hammersmith and Fulham's radical Decent Neighbourhoods regeneration programme.

So Fly on the Wall; can you now understand the dangers of 'off the wall comments' made by a total ingenue?
