The Council has been boasting that Cranbrook Basements have been heavily fined for displaying advertising on the hoardings surrounding their hated mega basement sites.
Clearly, the O' Connor family who own Cranbrook couldn't give a toss and see the fine as part of a cheap advertising budget! They are certainly not quaking in their boots...
|PALTRY £1000 FINE|
Anyway, a reader wrote this to the Dame...
I live in Abingdon Road and happened to walk past the dreadful Cranbrook basement excavations which so disrupt our lives.
I saw a very smartly dressed manager in a hi vis jacket and asked him how he felt about the fine of £1000 his company had received for the ugly advertising signs on the hoardings.
His reply rather took me aback.
Rather than seeming upset he said that he didn’t think it would worry the boss, Mr O’Connor, who had had unpaid advertising on the sites for months and probably thought £1000 cheap for street advertising that would have cost him tens of thousands of pounds!
Well, I was astonished by his response; particularly as the council press release gave the impression that Mr O’Connor was quivering in his big workmens’ boots.
I thought you ought to know that Cranbrook seem very relaxed about their puny fine: after all they are making millions of pounds from their client….
