Look at what is happening to Marco Cerestes best friend 'Pooter' Cockell in Kensington & Chelsea. We could still be getting trainloads of their social housing tenants moving to Peterborough, if Mr Cereste and his robotically voting Tories including Cllr Turnip get back in. You read it here first!
'The Dame' writes the Hornets Nest Blog and first tipped us off over the Cereste plan to welcome their displaced social housing tenants to this long term construction site (formerly a classic English Cathedral City) ..

Nothing can happen until he does.
Still, as Cockell did bugger all for Stanley ward residents they won't be notice much.
But could this have anything to with getting his final quarter's allowance in?
Nothing this greedy piece of work does would surprise the Dame.
Come on, Pooter, get your resignation letter in now.
We want you 'off the premises'

I would just like to say thank you for trying to save our flats in Chelsea. I went to see the new homes which are an example of what Suttons are going to try and get planning permission to do on our estate.
Firstly they state they are better homes for all of us. Well I totally disagree with what I saw of the new homes, they did not impress me at all.
The home I live in is much better which most people on the visit agreed. We do not want this redevelopment to go ahead. If we have to take these new homes it will break families up as there is not enough room to have children and grandchildren visit and have dinner, as there is no where you can sit and eat. I think the designer done these flats and realized he forgot to put kitchens in them, realized he forgot to put kitchens in and as an afterthought decided to put a row of cabinets in the sitting room and call it a kitchen. I would have more room in a coffin. As for the winter garden, it is a large plant bed. I had more space in my unmodernised flat 30 years ago when I had a bath in my kitchen with a work top.
They state they are putting planning permission in as some blocks that are empty do not meet the needs of social housing, well why don’t they do what they did to all the other flats on the estate, knock through and modernize. It is good enough for the ones that are not being knocked down wonder why? Money that’s what this is all about so they get the flats. Also they (social housing) are around the back of the site from Private buyers. I think it is unfair to put us social housing people at the back of the flats while private buyers have to be facing the front and have the best views. Shame on them, William Sutton must be turning in his grave.
If a flat is worth 1 million plus let the rich buy their own homes they can afford it. Social Housing is needed badly in London. Who needs underground parking and penthouses on the estate for the rich; this was meant to be an estate for the needy people, stop discriminating us for being poorer. Leave us social housing residents alone. I think we should have a door to door petition before planning is put in. There are over 1000 people supporting saving the Estate on Facebook. All the excuses they are making for planning permission is nothing to do with this, it is all for selling and making money. Just wanted to let you know my views and a lot more are thinking the same.
The Save Our Sutton / Save The Sutton Estate Supporters have also been informed of a terrible ordeal residents in Chadwick Mews, Easthampstead had to endure after moving in to new premises built in 2011. The article highlights the fact that just because something is new does not always mean better.
