We in this place in the centre of the Capital of England should uphold our free debate .You want me to be censored ? jog of to Barbicantalk
Nobody is starting an argument with you. People were genuinely trying to help you. Everyone is free to post here, but telling people to 'keep their noses out' is totally out of order. You have been a bit rude to the Alderman, and to fellow residents, who were only trying to give you information they had. If you wish only to talk to the Alderman then maybe it would be advisable to send him a personal letter, instead of posting on a general forum, and objecting when other residents join in the conversation. We are all meant to support each other, as fellow residents. That is what this site is for.
This Estate should be an example of its Intention,social housing .it is not .Its falling apart And Mr Alderman points out that that double glazing in Great Arthur House will be a benifit for the rich investsors
I am really not sure what it is that "15 storeys high" seems so upset about - even to the point of criticising other people when they contribute to the discussion. I would have thought this is exactly what a public forum like this is all about, and telling other people to mind their own business when they contribute when trying to be helpful does seem rather like censorship to me. The exchanges started with a question - would the GAH cladding works start next year, to which the one-word answer already given is "yes". The work will take many months to complete, so it is too soon to give out installation dates for any specific flat. I suspect the reason why 15 stories is upset is a sense that the Estate is not as well-maintained as it should be. I would agree there is a backlog of work to address, and I expect that both the perception and the reality will improve.
I do not understand 15 stories point (attributed to me) about rich investors - did I say that or imply it? The new cladding will benefit everybody equally, the only difference is that the "rich investors" (and I have no idea which GAH residents fit that description, if any) but if that expression is supposed to mean owners, they will each have a bill almost certainly well in excess of £40,000 each to pay for their "double glazing". So, if this saves £200 per year in heating costs, this is only 200 years for the work to pay for itself, at present day prices. If saving heating costs were the only reason for doing this, it would be an economically daft thing to do, but that is not the only reason and the work includes a lot more than installing double glazing. Hence the enormous cost, partly paid for by the so-called "rich investors" and partly paid for by the City of London.
'15 storeys high', it might also make things less tense if you could use a real name instead. That way we all know exactly who we are talking to. Far more neighbourly, don't you think?
