If they did, they would be right off target....
Instead their ire should be directed at industrialist/Goldman Sachs banker and Labour peer, Lord Allen of Kensington!
|SCREWING UP RESIDENTS' LIVES|
Allen rarely loses an opportunity to parade his social conscience and Lanarkshire working class origins in the financial pages...what a hypocrite!
But why would Allen and his partner, Michael Fischer, need this vast space?
Can it be that they plan to do it up and then flog it?
Created 'Lord' Allen by his very good friend, Ed Milliband, Allen has used his money and power to turn South Edwardes Square into his feudal state, whilst he completes his massive renovation.
When complete it will include a multi level sub basement including an Olympic size subterranean swimming pool!
A nearby resident writes in fury.....
"During the day, South Edwardes Square (the road), has been closed off to traffic for the past 6 weeks, and sometimes it has been inaccessible to pedestrians as well. There are times when it is intermittently open, but for the most part, there is a member of Knight Build, the construction company, standing on the street outside the Scarsdale Pub redirecting traffic. The road around the square is narrow and by necessity, it is a one way traffic system, so in essence, the Square has been largely closed to traffic, and will remain so for the foreseeable future. I understand that the several elderly residents of Pembroke Court (on the SE corner of the Square) and their families are quite worried because in the event of a medical emergency, ambulance accessibility would be very quite difficult."
But, his charitable tendencies don't extend to caring for his neighbours.
Still, with him being boss of the Red Cross neighbours can relax in the event of that medical emergency.
As one colleague said of him, "he gives the impression of being kindly and avuncular, but will stab you in the back without compunction".
