I experienced TMAC last week, having to listen to a lecture together with my fellow residents. I find it difficult to understand how or why this adminstration thinks it is democratic to ignore the very people who put them there in the first place.
I always thought the Socialist dogma was "for the many not the few" but not in Croydon. LTNs are good for you and must be delivered come what may. When challenged on the inequality of these schemes, Cllr Scott refused to accept the premise that creating gated communities was in anyway devisive, he wanted more not less and actually said that the traffic should be diverted onto the main roads, his theory being that the congestion would be so bad that motorists would stop using their cars.
Cllr Scott has metamorphed from seemingly housing the homeless by building one bed flats that nobody wants or can afford to live in to being Croydon's very own Eco warrior. He lectures us about climate change and how single handedly he will change Croydon into a 1950s utopia where you will cycle to local shops and children will play hopscotch in car free roads. I have an idea, if you are so keen on saving the environment why not stop trying to concrete over Croydon taking away every blade of grass and destroying the environment, especially for the children who live on our estates, where do you suggest they play? Nobody will disagree that we need to tackle the problems of climate change but what we need is evolution not revolution. Take the people with you, listen to them because very soon they will have an opportunity to have their say and they might just tell you they have had enough.
