Alan Stanton replied to Mark Crouch End's discussion Haringey's an arsehole, say Spurs (or something like that)
"You are entirely missing the point of the article. Spurs are refusing to pay despite the fact that Spurs "supporters" add to the litter etc in local streets. They also add to noise; to parking problems; chocked roads; and to passenger…"

Alan Stanton replied to Mark Crouch End's discussion Sarah Elliott defects, boo/hurrah (*delete as appropriate)
"A small correction if I may. I wasn't actually "booted out" of the Haringey Labour Group of councillors. Having been elected for four terms from 1998 onwards I'd decided 16 years was enough. And although I was on the right-wing…"
