There are some (true story) who simply do not see the irony of spending a huge sum of money for a flat in sight of the video billboard on Piccadilly Circus, who then go on to object to planning and licence applications on the basis of noise, drunkenness, light pollution (oh, irony on ironies!), additional traffic, uncollected refuse from other establishments etc. etc. etc. It's the same phenomena as those who buy homes under flight paths and then go on to complain about aircraft noise.You think people who live in Central London and have drunk people screaming and shouting outside their door at 3am have no right to complain?

You think people who live in social housing have no right to complain? You think people who live in Central London and have drunk people screaming and shouting outside their door at 3am have no right to complain? And no, not everyone who has a gripe is vulnerable but those elderly and infirm who live alone and are woken up in the middle of the night by noisy inconsiderate drunks are.

I dont care how loud money talks when I have people defecating in my stairwell, pulling up our plant pots for fun and having a half our conversation under my window at 3am while trying to hail a cab then I am going to complain !!!
