For the purposes of this thread I'm neutral about the proposed CPZ. I am, however, disturbed about the campaign against which certainly isn't winning me over.
I've waded through the various threads and can't find anything about the organisation behind the blue posters in Lordship Lane business windows, which are akin to pro-regime propaganda I've seen in Syria and Iraq.
Why do the posters not have a contact? And why can none of the shopkeepers give me contact details? If the artist wishes to remain anonymous, surely they can find someone amongst ED's 12,000 odd residents to support them (especially if more than 6,700 are with them)?
Where did the '67% of ED residents voted against a CPZ'? figure come from? It might be fairer to say '67% of ED residents are not in favour'...even then, turnout for the last local elections in Goose Green was 47%(a)...so to say 67% of ED residents voted against a CPZ is stretching the truth...
Unless I'm missing something, people did not vote against a CPZ. They were invited to respond to a consultation.
Finally, the wording is pure hyperbole. "Misery and Chaos"? Those are strong words. Homeless, hungry, abused people experience misery and chaos.
