The Actung Millwall podcast did a midweek special yesterday with the Grauns Barney Ronay and Millwalls PR man David Prescott (John's son who Sea Lion mentioned up thread) who were both at a special Scrutiny Team meeting this week at Lewisham town hall that been set up to look into the CPO decision process.
Sounds like the club and the locals did a great job putting their case up (more social housing, profits to the council. "When the developers have gone we will still be in the community"... ) and the scrutiny team voted unanimously to call the CPO decision in for review citing "Insufficient grounds for a compelling case in the public interest."
A couple of jucy bits came up:
-->Renewal asked to have the names of it's financial backers kept secret as they are local. Very strange considering they're an off-shore company and are are appealing here for huge sums of public money.
-->Steve Bullock the mayor of Lewisham has a place on the board of a development company that one of the directors of Renewal is on too...
The brass neck of these cunts.
Well worth a listen if you have an interests in resistance against gentrification/ speculative developers ... I can see a line in Millwall/Class War half-and-half bobble hats flying off the shelves this winter
I listened to it and am a bit more optimistic.BUT with the back handers flying about im not sure it will help the club and the cpo's will go ahead.
That's a massive reveal about steve bullock. How long has he had that job? Feels like forever. Never trusted him tbh. I bet theres more dirt if someone digged properly.
Mayor since 2002 and job on the council since 1984. Cosy.
Wiki says He is the London Council's Executive lead for Housing and Vice-chair of Homes for London...
The geezer from the Guardian is onto them as well as Berylsons lawyers. I bet there's some arsehole flapping going on at Lewisham council.
Im sure Labour have recently condemned Off shore tax avoidance and the companies involved in such practices. Now they want to give these same cunts a massive development to build.
Prescott sounded well optimistic that the Renewal thing will be quashed and the Club could well win - which would obviously be epic.
I wouldn't be surprised if he's the head of the snake. Makes you wonder how many of the old-school new-labour anti-Corbyn crew are up to the necks in it as well.
I very much doubt Lewisham will let Millwall anywhere near the regeneration.They will put it out to tender again until they get what they want.££££££££££££££££'s
I dunno. Its a labour council. With the shift going on in the party, they either start showing some community spirit or get fucked off. As well, there's definitely bit of a ground swell against the corrupt offshore property scammers going on at the moment. It could be the catalyst of a turning point.

Five minutes in is about the regen.
Cheers for the heads up
me and me brother, moping around OKR on our jack wondering wtf... has the regen come early
love it. sound like the club's got the council by the balls... "the scrutiny committee has done the job of mayor and cabinet"
Are we seeing an internal overthrow in LC? Like you say, there'll be some arseholes going - particularly Bullocks if he cant deliver to these shady cunts behind renewal.
Millwall score an early goal as they seek the ultimate home win
Thats a good article, pulls it all together.
You only have to look at those despicable signs put outside peoples homes to make your mind up as to what a scummy lot Renewal are.
Contract to succeed?
Sullivan and Malik involed with this as well.

Tune in to the next episode of Sahf East Enders
Well exciting... (that is; apart from the performances on the pitch since all this... )
Barney Ronay's latest piece:
The chair of the Scrutiny Committee at Lewisham Council has drawn a line and called for the CPO decision to be reversed
Stellar job by Ronay... very brave. I hope he don't end up getting dredged out of canada water, wearing a pair of concrete boots
He's been consistently good on this story for a good while, hasn't he?
Now that I no longer live anywhere near SE London, this thread and him have been almost my only source of knowledge
Will read the above latest properly tomorrow. Actually looking forward to it
That was a really good article by Ronay
Massively hoping for Millwall's sake** that the CPO gets overturned. There seems to be some signs that some within Lewisham have some sense, but fingers still need to be crossed.
**Despite them beating us at home yesterday. Bastards
There are no prizes for guessing which candidate Milne supported in the last Labour leadership election.
