    Let me reword it: 'But of the 513 eligible businesses in the area, only 228 could be bothered to engage positively.' Better?

    Any thoughts about all the small businesses Lambeth took to court because of the BID?

    Not really imo. All votes are sign of positive engagement regardless of how they voted.

    Abstentions should not necessarily be regarded as negative

    It was only possibleto vote by returning the Ballot paper supplied

    Which is a very large turnout for this kind of thing.

    If business in Brixton has such an issue with the BID why did so few vote against it ?

    Yes. Looks like he didn't have any issues in offloading his Electric Avenue business premise after it was tarted up with Council sourced Lottery Heritage Fund money.

    Utterly despicable. I wonder how much extra he trousered for himself out of this fortuitous arrangement?
