Police Forced To Shut Down Property Fair

Recommended Posts

This is why they usually hold it on yachts in sunnier climes.

They will do this next year stating that if they held it here the increased policing cost would be more than the jolly.

Wow, the sheeple really are waking up! Much different from the last peak back in 2007.

Thats because the 2007 bubble was a Labour bubble, a far nicer bubble than a Tory one.

MIPIM Innovation Forum

Located in the Gare Maritime, next to the Palais des Festivals, the MIPIM Innovation Forum is a 1,300 m² pavilion gathering all innovation stakeholders - 470 coporate occupiers, 4,300 investors, 1,400 architects & planners, 300 cities, 2,100 local and public authorities - to showcase the most innovative solutions and practices to increase the value of property assets.

An extract from the mipim site.

They don't even try to pretend about pushing up prices.

Kicking off the event was the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who made a speech in a room festooned with press and property big-wigs. He started with some of his trademark buffoonery, saying, “I thought MIPIM stood for ‘meet me in the pool in a minute’,” which was actually pretty funny at the time, but doesn't have quite the same ring to it written down.

He's reduced to cracking the same stale "jokes" he cracked in his last speech to MIPIM.

MIPIM stands for Le marché international des professionnels de l’immobilier (it's a French organisation) which in English means The international market for real estate professionals.

Same jokes same greed. He's not even got the excuse of being funny or amusing anymore.

Apparently the reforms in the Lyons Housing Review are going to be revealed today by Milliband in Milton Keynes - at 11.30am.

Of course it'll just be a coincidence that MIPIM (Le marché international des professionnels de l’immobilier - The international market for real estate professionals) is holding its first London trade show at Olympia at exactly the same time.

Not sure if that was really the Sheeple waking up or the old fashioned socialist-worker rent a rabble...

And what on earth's happened to our police...I don't mean to be rude but...what an absolute shower. In the old days, they would have all been men at least 5'8" and would have just linked arms and pushed forward to keep that lot back. It was the policing version of the British Square. Now they're all standing there in a ragged open line waving those silly metal sticks that look like car aerials.

Here's the review, not read it yet. The Lyons Housing Review. Mobilising across the nation to build the homes our children need.

I didn't think I could find anyone more distasteful than David Cameron, but boris (whose name my iPhone try's to auto spell as virus) is right up there with the worst of them.

I suppose it's in the blood, those two along with Osborne are related apparently.

The irony of an anti-capitalist rocking an iPhone is never lost on me

I was there.

Before you throw judgement you should know some of the facts. A small demonstration was organised by Save Charring Cross Campaign and Save Earls Court Campaign. The Labour Council Leader turned up and local MP. They were campaigning to stop both the Hospital and West Kens estate which are planned to be bulldozed for luxury flats for the foreign investors inside. The Council had a £9,000 stand inside paid for by the previous Tory Council which they turned into a protest stand in the venue to Save the hospital and build affordable homes for the locals. Everyone getting on the police and shared pretty much the same views.

However a anarchist group of squatters turned up, mostly french, Spanish and British swampies and high jacketed the protest. They suddenly tried to rush the doors and were stopped by police who pushed them back. Even the local protestors tried to stop them and were attacked by the anarchist group. The batons were raised as a show of strength and within about a minute they were pushed back and retreated failing to get in. The officers in the middle were TSG5 and were about five foot 8 or taller. One officer was well over 6 foot ;). None of the anarchists cared about affordable housing, they were financially illiterate and just wanted to get in and smash up the place and target Boris.

On a really good point the politicians and local activists were really speaking up for affordable housing and discussing when the London bubble would burst.
