AMS statement 24.01.17
Today’s news has moved very fast. Firstly we hear that a group of 45 Lewisham councillors has called for an independent enquiry into the New Bermondsey affair. Secondly a major sponsor of the Renewal scheme in Cabinet member Damien Egan has withdrawn his backing for the plans in their current form.
Millwall fans can regard this news as two major battles won, but not yet the war itself.
The AMS protest campaign will not end until the CPO process has been definitively terminated by Lewisham Council and Mayor Steve Bullock has proffered his resignation. He is intimately linked with the current scandal and his position is no longer tenable. He must go.
Until new leadership from within Lewisham Council emerges our campaign and our evidence gathering will continue.
We wish to place on record our thanks to the brave stance of Councillors Alan Hall and Liam Curran. Once again we wish to express our debt to Guardian journalist Barney Ronay, our the secret source ‘Swiss Tony’ and the total support that we have received from the Millwall family and the world beyond. We are humbled.
Our battle continues. Up the Lions.
