Well done. It's not a competition though.
Long story, and probably not very interesting unless you live in the immediate area but
Loughborough Junction public space improvements - consultation begins
i thought you might mention 3 or 4 of the other things done, not refer me to some other thread.
Public meetings, several thousand emails to councillors, forensic analysis showing how crap the consultation process was and how they skewed the figures, coverage by a couple of journalists which made the council look bad, that sort of thing.
but why then do you say it was the petition wot dun it?
It was a mixture of all those things, not just petition.
yes. but why did you highlight the petition, when you cannot say how effective it was?
Because.. on this thread I was ridiculed for the idea that a petition could make the blindest bit of difference to anything- and coz it does seem to have been key (the council's statement references the weight of opposition demonstrated by the petition).
the petition has made no difference whatsoever as gentrification continues apace.
never mind eh. We shouldn't have bothered, should've just sat here whinging about hipsters and the price of cereals.
you didn't even do that.
brighton gentrification - anywhere half decent is being taken over by fucking hipsters!
If anyone could check my questions about gentrification would be greatly appreciated?
You really are fucking annoying.
You are aware that the rules of this board specifically ban students using us as a free resource, so if you think you can now start spamming other threads with endless requests, you're very much mistaken. Either contribute something or you'll be hoofed off.
