    I'm sure people will recall Jules Pipe saying this just over a year ago:

    'Plans to build towers up to 46 storeys high full of luxury flats have been branded “an obscenity” by Hackney’s mayor, Jules Pipe.

    At a packed public debate Mr Pipe slammed the Bishopsgate Goodsyard developers for failing to include sufficient affordable housing in their plans.

    “They are willing to do it [the development] because they will make an obscene amount of profit,” he said.

    “London is going to come to a grinding halt because we cannot afford to house the people we need to run this city,” warned Mayor Pipe.

    “This will provide not a single home that would be within reach of people who work in Tech City. We think the developers could do much better to provide space for them.”

    Now Hackney's planning committee unanimously passes this:

    'Zero affordable housing' scheme for Kingsland Fire Station site approved by planning committee - Hackney Citizen

    So land that presumably belongs to us, being used to support a divisive education strategy while making big bucks for developers and including no affordable housing.

    I'm not massively surprised but I am incensed.

    I think that's post-hoc bollocks when he was rumbled - all the stuff in the article about "poking" or whatever it was...

    I just saw that yesterday. I suspect they are probably out and out far right dickheads (but more of the intellectual than fisticuffs variety) but as usual with these things it has enough ambiguity and boring detail that most people won't bother to get into the detail of it. I mean even I haven't found the time to look into it all and am quite geeky about this stuff.
