Ethelred Residents Against Transfer
Public meeting with Kate Hoey MP

Monday April 16th, 7pm
Carmelita Centre, corner Vauxhall Walk and Jonathon St SE11 5JT
Organised by Defend Council Housing

We Voted No!
Official Ballot Result:
NO – 240 (60.9%)
YES – 154 (39.1%) 

We now know that a clear majority of Ethelred residents voted against transfer to WATMOS. For months Lambeth denied that they had access to the results of how each estate voted. They finally released the figures when they were forced to by the Information Commissioners Office. But then only AFTER they had signed over the deeds to WATMOS.

From the beginning Lambeth has treated the residents of Ethelred with complete contempt and this is the final insult. They knew there was no mood for transfer in Ethelred so they deliberately set up the ballot to include two other estates where the TMOs were strongly in favour of transfer. Then they poured huge resources into convincing us to vote YES but when we voted NO they just went ahead regardless!

Residents and campaigners are challenging the whole way in which this ballot and transfer were organised, including local MP Kate Hoey who is taking up the issue directly with the government minister responsible. Come along to the public meeting to help make sure that everyone responsible for this disgusting swindle is held to account.
