The Hypocrisy of Brighton and Hove City Council

When George and Diane make a bit of noise on a few occasions they are thrown onto the street and have their locks changed, are summarily evicted without notice and are placed into a dive of a hostel in inner Brighton surrounded by smack heads leading the lifestyle one of them went to rehab to leave. They are informed that they "are unable to live in a self-contained property".

When American Express build a new building to hold offices for their employees they start early in the morning with cranes and create a huge amount of noise and carry on into the evening.

When local residents hold a massive banner outside of their property saying, "AMEX MAKES OUR LIVES HELL" what do the Council do?

Nothing. They do nothing. They say nothing. The Council wouldn't know justice if it woke them up at 6 in the morning.

(-: You didn't have to return to your former blog picture on my account.
I hope I didn't hurt your feelings about the previous one.

Thanks for the update on the couple.
It's sad if it just boils down to noise.
Toleration of noise is a generation thing isn't it.
My daughter can't revise WITHOUT music; I needed absolute silence and even used ear plugs at college!
