|EXFORD: BOSS OF INTIMIDATING STAFF|
A large group of residents campaigning to save Sutton Estate, Chelsea, were meeting with Edddie Izzard and various journalists, including the Guardian, when they were rudely interrupted by Affinity Sutton's spin-mistress, Lisa Louis and Chelsea Resident Liason Office, Natalie Down.
This scary duo told the journo's that they were to speak to residents keen on the demolition of their homes.
The Guardian agreed, but found that AF had only managed to dragoon two!
Things got heated when residents confronted the spin-mistress about figures produced in a AF public consultation.
She then admitted there were, " errors and plans had not been finalised"
And that's when it all started to get unpleasant.
Lisa Louis approached a resident who had been interviewed by the journalist on camera in their property, and threatened, "You know you need permission to film in your flat." Unfortunately for Ms. Louis, her threat was overheard by a journalist; when she realised this, she said that she was just joking.
Other residents, who were in support of the Save the Sutton Campaign, had seen what was going on and were scared off by her threat.
Keith Exford's Affinity Sutton is a multi-billion pound charity, with huge resources and PR companies to get their message across, and yet, in order to push their agenda through, they found it necessary to start threatening residents.
This is not the behaviour of a charity:this is the behaviour of thugs and gangsters.
Keith Exford, as Group Chief Executive of the charity Affinity Sutton if you have any integrity give the accurate figures for the public consultation, and stop the intimidation now.
