    Indeed,all while Peter John and his cronies sucked the developers balls. It's nice of him to support your plight whilst slinging out a huge working class community. what a shameless cunt.

    Maybe he learnt his lesson. Maybe things are finally changing. Either way, I'm not going to criticise the council for how they're trying to help Hamlet, and I hope other councils take an equally enlightened view for all the other community clubs and ventures struggling to survive as the developers encircle.

    That said, there should have been criminal charges raised for what happened at the Heygate.

    Yes it's bitter sweet. I am glad they are too but there is still a lot of anger towards him after what he presided over. Anyway,good luck with it all,it seems a right mess.

    Absolutely agree. It was the Lib Dem / Lab coalition that put together the criminal Heygate shambles – Labour signed the final documents with LendLease, but that was just six weeks after winning overall control in 2010. Doesn't excuse them, but to keep on saying the Council can do no good is not just unhelpful, but wrong. If anything good has come out of the Heygate – and Aylesbury – scandals it's that the spotlight is on the Council and that residents are now watching their every move.

    I've sent a couple of 'enquiries' to Meadow Residential at Contact us | Meadow Residential LLP and am really surprised I haven't received a reply yet!! :confused: :D Perhaps a few others could try the same thing and see they get a response?

    As I understand it the Aylesbury residents are still in a mess so it's not as though the council have learned from the Heygate scandal and decided to act decently towards them...

    It's good they are helping Dulwich but they deserve a lot more scrutiny over some of their other deals. The rest of the Elephant redevelopment will show how much they have truly learned.

    I've just asked them why they haven't got listed under current projects their attempt at destroying a 125 year old, much loved local football club. Do you think I'll get a quick response?

    The Heygate and Champion Hill are two different issues.
    The problems with council housing go way back before the Heygate, and this thread IS NOT about that.
    SAVE DULWICH Champion Hill since 1902!

    Although I've made a bit of fun of the Dulwich Hamlet forum at times, just throwing some solidarity your way with your battle over the ground and your cuntish landlords. These issues always rise above footy rivalry, and for me, no matter what club, when it comes to fighting the profiteering and commercialisation of football and its money-makers over the interests of fans, club/ground history, and affects on the wider community.

    All the best with the march too (I'm sure you'll do a better job than my lot - West Ham - managed with our farce :facepalm:)

    If Peter Bennison turns up dressed like a military dictator I can't guarantee I won't throw things at him!

    Helen Hayes is raising Dulwich Hamlet in the commons (live right now, BBC Parliament channel).

    Unfortunately it looks like there are only about 10 people in the chamber!

    MP's usually travel back to their constituency on Friday to permit Saturday surgeries etc. These debates are rarely well attended tbh, even by the standards of the Commons.

    That was a good turnout for an Adjournment Debate. It's usually the MP, a minister and two whips. Key point was the response from the Government which I thought was positive for a debate like this. A huge success, particularly allied with a be-scarfed picture of the Leader of the Opposition and Gavin. Congratulations to all involved in the delegation and to Helen Hayes.

    The important thing is that the government will now put pressure on meadows to resolve this asap with DHFC the priority or they will send in a mediator. Fuck you Meadows!

    Yes, well done to Helen Hayes and all involved. Anyone know where Harriet Harman was as the ground is actually in her constituency? A bit poor that she didn't appear to be there.

    Great speech from Helen Hayes, supportive comments from 3 of her backbench colleagues and a very encouraging response from Sports Minister Tracey Crouch, who revealed that she went to a few Hamlet matches whilst living at Herne Hill, and pledged to intervene to impose an independent mediator to resolve the situation if Meadow continues to be obstructive and unco-operative .

    That seems slightly optimistic. No?

    With good grounds, but as ever thanks for your input. As valuable as it is informed.
