    Boroughs that are acquiescing in the social cleansing of London, where artists and creative people are being pushed out of London, applying to be London Borough of Culture. It's bollox. Sure Squires be happy to support it though. So I shouldn't be to negative.

    Funnily enough my father was an artist. And he was working class. I grew up in working class area. Whatever faults he had ( and they were a lot) this idea that art is just middle class activity is wrong. It's actually in my view a reverse kind of prejudice. That people from working class backgrounds can't be creative.

    I know what you mean but I wouldn't want to inflict this on Croydon. They have MP who was Nu Labour leader of Lambeth and Chief Executive Jo Negrini. The right on ex Lambeth council officer ( Ex Town Centre Manager of Brixton) who climbed the slippery slope of local government arse licking Nu Labour to get to where she is now. I wouldn't want them to lap up yet another award to put on there CV.

    I've tweeted Lambeth to ask why neither urban75 or Buzz was invited. Surely the sign of a strong and inclusive council is one that can accommodate differing opinions rather than gathering a collective of nodding yes men/women around them... After all, they are the 'co-operative' council or do they only want to 'co-operate' with people who don't challenge any of their decisions?

    I know all about her, don't worry. She is potentially not long for the world of employment in Croydon if the Leader needs someone to take the fall for the recent Ofsted.

    Just because we don't like the administrations though doesn't mean things like this can't be good for the actual people who live in a borough.

    Is Bromley bidding? I'd back them just to piss off every London Labour borough!

    Also, loads of ticket-holders who have spoken out against the council in the past, have had their tickets cancelled.

    So they have been going through names of ticket holders to see if they have been involved in library campaign etc?

    In the good old days Shane Collins (Green Party, Legalise Cannabis Campaign) might have organised a "Bonfire of the Vanities" burning of Lambeth Labour Manifestos combined with a dope smoke-in outside the St Pauls Pavilion, Royal Festival Hall to piss off Ms Peck.

    Now cultural vandalism and state intimidation is normalised, unfortunately.

    Oooh, have you any more info about that? any names happy to go on record? Be good to let people know how the 'co-op' council operate.

    I've spoken to half a dozen. None are willing to go on record. I'm not really surprised, as most are council tenants, and they're worried about blow-back. :(
