I totally agree with you that there is a desperate need for a new school, and that is what Opposition councillors in Lewisham have been saying for years, and that is why Opposition councillors and Opposition parties opposed Labour's decision to close a school. It was only when they demolished a school that they realised, then, that there was shortage of places. I mean, what barmy thought-process they went through, I do not know.
Opposition councillors did get together and put forward alternative sites for a new school, which Labour have clearly failed to listen to. I would hope that your office and your intervention in this could actually bring a bit of common sense into this whole debate, because Lewisham Council have got themselves in absolute knots and are making utter fools of themselves at the moment.
