I hope you are well and keeping warm on these chilly days.
Mentioning chills...one definitely ran down my spine when I saw the latest interview from Gary Yardley of Capco ( or Crapco as we call them round these parts) .
|Greasy Gary having breakfast with Mr James of Soho Estates.|
Soho Estates, the property empire of gangster and
pornographer, Paul Raymond(dec'd)
It is certainly, to my mind, a contender for the Booker Prize for fiction. Gary rambles on about Capco building a New District for London.
Is the vulgarian idiot aware that Earls Court has been in existence for a lot longer than Capco?
The area, now Earls Court, is itself mentioned in the Domesday Book as being the manor of Kensington. The earls, of those times, held their Manorial Court in what is now Old Manor Yard. So why are Capco telling us all they are building a New District in London to be known as Earls Court? And why are RBKC and the 'never present' Mayor, Sadiq Khan, letting them spout this old tripe?
Capco continue to poo poo anyone against their development, oddly stating they are not building for people today but for those in the future!
Do they imagine a new generation of 'tiny folk'?
One thing I found very interesting is that Greasy Gary says they have been working with RBKC officers for the past ten years so that would be 2006?
Well, that doesn't fit with what we are all told. If they were planning to knock down the exhibition centre and estates that far back why was it hidden from us all?
Capco says on the myearlscourt.com that the London Mayor ( Boris) recognised it as part of the London Plan as an Opportunity Area in July 2011 ??? with the plans approved in 2013. So, if the area was not recognised until 2011 how could Capco have been working with the council on it since 2006 ? Capco are telling monstrous lies.
I also note he talks of Pocket Living.... 'developer bullshit' for flats you cannot swing a cat in: not that I would let one of my cats near a Capco flat, they are very choosy felines, with great taste.
My best Regards
