Your tirades against the Council have often spurred it into action but sometimes we resident/leaseholders have to question whether we give the impression of being a bit over-entitled and bolshy for the sake of being bolshy.
For example, I attended a leaseholder meeting last night at Hornton St.
The audience was confrontational, sceptical and in some instances unnecessarily petty....
What a lot of grumpy moaners we seemed even though the Council had wheeled out some its big guns who bent over backwards to show that the Council had discarded 'it's react/don't proact' strategy and was promoting a complete system overhaul for repair work.
Kim Taylor-Smith seemed genuinely keen to turn a new page and the new Director of Housing, Doug Goldring, who left an impressive legacy at Islington, spoke with credibility and commitment.
Yes, the Council has let us down in the past but now might be the time to lay down our swords and work with a leadership keen to work with us.
