Paul, as we both know, Haringey Council itself did not run the flawed, shaming Estate ballot on Love Lane Estate. Also referred to by the Council and developers with the utterly meaningless name of "High Road West". A planned renaming which wipes away the history of a real place. Substituting an empty non-name, which could hardly be more of an estate agents' or planners' invented Anytown Anywhere.
Though it appeared that Haringey Council staff were at least partly involved. Paul, could you clarify this for HoL readers. And for new councillors who read this and may be confused by which staff did what.
I have no idea why the photographic and eye witness evidence was dismissed. It strongly indicated that this ballot was at minimum dubious and unreliable. That is putting things politely. A politeness which I confess to finding hard to keep to. Especially when remembering, for example. the photos of a fake ballot box. And of a pair of posters on railings; one stressing the reward for a 'yes' to homes demolition.
How much attention do you think Haringey gave to the written advice, comments and criticisms of Damian Tissier the Independent Advisor?
Alan, the second one is a spoof trying to encourage people to vote no. Sofa Fabulosa is a made up name.
Thanks Michael for this observation. Of course I'll check this out and get back to you and others. Even as a spoof the aim appears unclear.
Of course I should have been more careful & checked before risking a silly error.
Thanks Paul Burnham for the original double poster.
And for Michael Anderson, I hope more people can now see, the "Sofa Fabuloza" was a political parody aimed at pointing out what many people - including me - viewed as a significant measure of dishonesty at the heart of the Council's "consultation" and resident voting.
How did this happen?
Makes you wonder whether they got the actual count right.
