More 'Ghetto' Allegations
Sadly, ours are not the only estates being demonised and described as ghettos. It seems to be a slur that comes easily to the lips of some local politicians these days. One of the latest to use it is Tory Councillor Rock Fielding-Mellen, who happens to be Kensington and Chelsea Council's lead for planning policy and housing policy. And guess what? He happened to use it when discussing plans to demolish Wornington Green Estate. The residents are not happy. We know how they feel.
