Our moles over in Canary Wharf have informed us that the MIGHTY Carter-Ruck are allegedly (thanks Ian!) interested in sorting us low-life East End scum out! Apparently the ODA are a tiny bit upset about some of your comments in the Skanska thread!
So........... 2 things:
1. Expect the police to come calling again (remember the last time we upset the ODA - they sent Sergeant Port over to 'ave a word) .......
and 2. Isn't it just a bit curious that the ODA get a bit het-up over a small community's blog? I mean - what are they doing poking their colossal construction sized noses in a residential neighbours internal affairs? Are we merely a thorn in their side - or is there something else we haven't yet been told?
Anyhow - it's nothing some of us haven't dealt with before - so - this is just a heads-up. Some of us WILL be 'aving a word with Sergeant Port some time soon - and some of us WILL be 'aving a word with Private Eye's favourite lunch buddies.
Oh - and some stuff lifted off their web-site says the following:
