Lewisham People Before Profit have campaigned long on hard in seeking to expose the cosy relationship between the Developers in our borough and a council lead by the all powerful Sir Steve Bullock who has been able until this week to give jobs in his cabinet to like minded fellow Labour Councillors.
This Week after the Guardian blew the roof of the scandal, The Charity Commission has launched an investigation and this has kicked of a police investigation, although at todays interview i was told at present police are investigating allegations to see if a fraud investigation should be launched, in light of the huge about of paper work on this, much tweeted via my twitter feed Ray Woolford this is almost certain to happen this week.
Today in a further twist a senior Labour party official contacted me in private to state Sir Steve Bullock would be standing down, whilst many using the hash tags Millwall and LEWISHAM4 are demanding the heads of all the top people in Lewisham including The Chief Executive .
Councillor Alan Hall has been extremely brave in writing the letter attached to this blog copy

following on from my Question to Council demanding exactly this , but Labour Lewisham is changing although the present Leadership is almost all totally opposed to Corbyn and even went as far as to write to the South London Press urging Labour members not to vote for him many new members have joined who are pro Corbyn including large number of former PBP members, Greens, Socialist Party etc but as yet are not in a position or been members long enough to ditch the old guard , the fact that Labour Councillors are breaking ranks is something that is welcome but Lewisham voters must insure at local level we have opposition councillors elected who can ask questions and carry out due diligence , is it really acceptable that our Labour Council is in power with just 17% of the electorate?
