Oh please, are you serious? er no I don't think so. As someone who has suffered problems for years as was diagnosed as COPD from a child, I do not know how I have survived living in Brent for so long. Especially as you now cut down trees in random abandonment. Er and what about the school that Quintain wants to build in the car park of York House. Give me a break you jokers.

Does anyone in Brent Council get what's going on in the High Road with all the new buildings? Pollution is at is optimum there is no escape for the general public. We are being bombarded by pollution from cars, building works, asbestos, cement fumes, heavy goods vehicles transporting waste from building sites and general waste. THERE IS NO ESCAPE. You dont give a good god damn! stop pretending.
