Millwall Football Club

Recommended Posts

Anonymous offshore trusts based in the Isle Of Man and the British Virgin Islands, dodgy local politicians and a football club that might be forced to move - this story is murkier than the water inside the IRIS treatment plant:

They write deluded nonsense and they are hypocrites. Typical champagne lefties. Do as I say, not as I do.

Millwall supporters group AMS have also written an open letter to Barry Quirke with concerns arising from their investigation of the relationship between Renewal and former mayor Dave Sullivan, among a number of questionable links between the council and the property developer in the scheme.

 

It states: “Failure to listen to genuine concerns could, we fear, lead to Millwall Football Club’s loss of academy status as recognised by the EFL and, ultimately, the club being forced to relocate from the London Borough of Lewisham.”

 

Today, Cllr Hall told NewsAtDen: “Millwall Football Club are part of the cultural history of London and Lewisham with over 100 years in the borough.

 

“Over the past five years Renewal's original outline planning application has fallen apart in slow motion in front of our very eyes.

 

“Renewal was going to pay for the new station at Surrey Canal Road – the taxpayer is now funding that; there was a multi-faith centre planned for Lewisham's diverse communities – that is now a cathedral-sized church for Christian evangelists from Australia. And the ever-shrinking proposed 'sporting village' will drive away one of football's most famous clubs and its highly successful community scheme providing opportunities for Lewisham's young people.

 

“That is bad enough but is also on top of the many questions surrounding governance, due diligence and ownership of Renewal that remain unanswered to this day.”

 

The next cabinet council meeting to discuss concerns and potentially push through the compulsory purchase order will take place at Catford Town Hall next Wednesday, January 11.

Pecunia non olet ?

From the past to the present.

 

 

The Latin motto Quocunque Jeceris Stabit can be translated as "whithersoever you throw it, it will stand", or "whichever way you throw, it will stand". The motto dates to the seventeenth century, where it is first recorded on Manx coinage dating to the year 1668.

 

 

Vespasian imposed a Urine Tax (Latin: vectigal urinae) on the distribution of urine from public urinals in Rome's Cloaca Maxima (great sewer) system. (The Roman lower classes urinated into pots which were emptied into cesspools.) The urine collected from public urinals was sold as an ingredient for several chemical processes. It was used in tanning, and also by launderers as a source of ammonia to clean and whiten woollen togas. The buyers of the urine paid the tax.

 

The Roman historian Suetonius reports that when Vespasian's son Titus complained about the disgusting nature of the tax, his father held up a gold coin and asked whether he felt offended by its smell (sciscitans num odore offenderetur). When Titus said "No", Vespasian replied, "Yet it comes from urine" (Atqui ex lotio est).[2]

 

The phrase Pecunia non olet is still used today to say that the value of money is not tainted by its origins. Vespasian's name still attaches to public urinals in France (vespasiennes), Italy (vespasiani), and Romania (vespasiene).
