Bloody hell. Good luck in your fight against these cynical gangsters, I'll certainly be writing to my local councillors and helping if I can. Have you tried publicizing the vandalism, thefts and fires to the newspapers? People can put two and two together, and negative press has some chance of influencing the council.. The Evening Times has been quite good for publicising the NK Meadow project. I know the media are a shower of bastards, but if you can give them an angle of "community group vs. greedy developers" on a single issue like this, they can be useful.
Thanks for the support. We have started trying to publicize things with the South Side News. We will evetually go to the Evening Times, but they tend to act as the press department of the council on such matters as the M74 extension. They have also been publishing the positive spin about the council giving the property developers £3 million, during the downturn in the housing market, to re-route a road around their new houses. That's 3 million that could have saved the primary schools and nurseries threatened with closure by the council. What is the NK Meadow Project?
you should install your own hidden cameras. it worked for a friend of mine whose shed was getting robbed on a weekly basis.
good luck, don't let the bastards win!
This is the project I was referring to
I'm horrified I didn't know anything about thistill now.SincerelyGrace FranklinEditorLOCAL NEWS SOUTH
