Top, Top stuff.
Ferdinand group's bid for Dulwich Hamlet rejected - reports
Big up Sadiq.
Sadiq Khan has ‘deep concerns’ over Dulwich Hamlet after Independent report
There was a video clip shared somewhere on Facebook yesterday of President Trump addressing an audience of big business representatives in which he appealed for support for his ridiculous "guns for schoolteachers" initiative. The first person who supported him from the floor was from Meadow, and Trump namechecked them with the comment "Meadow you're beautiful!" I can't find it now, but given the sheer antipathy towards Trump from the U.K. media and people, surely anything that can link Meadow with Trump whilst emphasising that they are threatening the future of our club is something we can exploit?
we sure they were from Meadow Partners LLP?
It was posted on the Moral victory but whoever posted it has removed their own post.
I'm a big fan of Sadiq but that seems to me like a classic politicians answer: he hopes for a solution that saves Dulwich Hamlet but also delivers new homes. Not really anti-Meadow, to be honest - just hoping a solution will present itself.
The thing is, when he wades in, the money listen. He controls one of their most fertile investment options. London Property.
I think the solution did present itself on 12 December but Meadow told him to fuck off.
Meadow are obnoxious unethical bullies. They probably think that by taking that stance they'll get what they want. Maybe that approach works in the US? Ultimately I don't think it will make them very popular with Londoners. I'd like to think bad publicity over their treatment of our club will damage their chances of gaining planning permission for other projects. I'd like to think we can help force them out of London and ruin their whole UK operation.
Meadow projects in London since Vile Bennison started this pile of shit organisation.......nil FUCKING NIL!
What is actually known about Meadow? I've lost track of the all the characters and who is based where
Good. I'd like to think we can personally ruin that bastard's career. I wouldn't mind so much if he just doesn't like football, but I'm told he has a private box at Chelsea yet he's still trying to strangle our vibrant big little club for greed and profit.
Should do what millwall fans did on the hof site, when they were threatened
Its funny many pple think they are all thick , yet two of the 3 were millionaires and are no mugs
They got lots of Dirt on them Dodgy bank accounts offshore etc from investors of the company
Discredited a few names with all sorts, put it up on twitter and other outlets
These people play dirty and it seems you have to do the same
As for khan and few of his fan club on here it seems
Let it be known that he was the one who has messed up Cray wands future turning down their planning application after it was approved the first time

In the meantime, after we were told we’d receive all bar profits from match days, we’ve been told we won’t be getting a penny. (Est. £35-50K) We feel that this decision has been made purely to make our lives difficult. We are surviving on gates and donations alone.
What about Boycotting the Bar ?
If no takings go to the football club how about making it be known more vocally
Come on youve helped refugee causes , Gay rights, cinema staff etc and all this other stuff
Maybe time to help yourself nearer home
I no longer live in London and have zero opinion who should be Mayor, it's none of my business. However Sadiq Khan has an electoral mandate to block development on Metropolitan Open Land. From memory the Cray development was on MOL. In the very unlikely position Southwark had approved the Meadow scheme I suspect that he probably would have called that in and rejected it too given it was built partially on MOL.
Personally I'm glad to see a politician honour their promises to the electorate. The developers are aware of his electoral mandate and should work around it.
The London electorate will have chance to remove that electoral mandate further down the line if they disagree with it.
Rio's company quoted as saying they remain interested in doing a deal. Southwark Council putting the boot in too.
If Meadow hoped this would die down overnight it looks like they'll be disappointed.

Looking after DHFC *and* helping out the causes you’ve quoted are not mutually exclusive last time I checked. We can do both.
Many people come to the game to drink and watch the football. Many are day trippers and may not come to many games but their entry is the only income the club will get. .... widespread promotion of boycotting the bar may effect attendances and so the ability of the club to pay the bills. They have us over a barrel with this, I'm leaving it to the individual to make their choice to use the bar or not.
By doing all this 'gay rights' (or LGBT History Month to everyone else) stuff is helping ourselves ... the awareness of the club / publicity it's achieved brings in the crowds we now get, without these crowds I fear we may have been on the brink a long time ago.
Keep doing what we are doing should be the message
So they want £13mill is that the sticking issue?
