COUNTDOWN TO THE WRECKING OF CHELSEA'S SUTTON ESTATE
Conveniently, just when the local elections are over, grasping Affinity Sutton get down to their plan of tearing down the heritage of a great Londoner William Sutton. And where are Cllrs Cockell, Warrick and Pascall who professed such concern? They couldn't even be bothered to attend an important protest meeting. The Dame, who knows about these things, says Affinity Sutton have bought on board a 'persuasion company' going by the name ofMeeting Place Communications . This company specialises in bullshitting(Dame, rather vulgar language, don't you think? Ludo)in lulling the targets of its nonsense into a fall sense of security. Avoid their greasy charms, residents of Sutton. William Sutton was a Cheapside born Londoner. His Victorian work ethic allowed him to rise from humble beginnings and create a vast door to door delivery service; it was the first of its kind. Upon his death he left his £1.5 million fortune( in terms of today just under £1billion) to create housing for those poor of London needing comfortable, low cost housing. God knows what he would think of Affinity Sutton and its plans to bastardisehis great work of human kindness.
Sutton Buildings are famous: not just in the UK, but worldwide. A professor of English History at Brown University wrotethis about Sutton. It's a 'must read'
A PIECE OF CHELSEA UNDER BREAKERS BALL
Today Ground Investigation Works begin on The Sutton Estate.....
100 year old residents are being terrified by the noise of the drills in The Sheltered Housing Garden.
One asked The Dame, "is this really how a social affordable housing provider should treat us?"
Another, who had lived though the Blitz and action overseas said that it was like being under attack from the Luftwaffe.
Another said...... "we planned an event on the Estate to celebrate the regeneration of the Sunken Garden and to tip our hats to those who sacrificed their lives in WW1 so we could enjoy our peaceful garden. Instead we have noise levels more like the Battle of the Somme."
The other noise the Dame hears is that certain key movers and shakers on Sutton are planning to get UKIP involved.....
