New Cross poll of poles

Larry David: [watching Girls Gone Wild] You know what a woman would do if I ever asked her to lift up her top?
Jeff Greene: Why do you have to analyze this? Can't we just watch this?
Larry David: She would spit on me! If I ever asked a woman to lift up her top, she would kick me in the balls and spit on me!
Jeff Greene: We've waited a long time to see this and all you're doing is yakking. Be quiet, come on!

Very short notice but there's a public meeting being held by the Council tonight regarding New Cross pub the White Hart's plans to turn itself in to a pole dancing venue.

Monday 16 February at the Barnes Wallis Community Centre, 74 Wild Goose Drive, SE14 at 7.00pm. The centre is just off Dennetts Road.

Cllr Ian Page explains:

"There is no legal process under current licensing law to oppose the decision by the magistrates at the appeal hearing to allow the variation in the pub's licence. There is however a possibility that a change in the Licensing regulations in the near future may allow the council some leeway to oppose the licence in the future although nothing is certain.

"I think it will be well worth attending to show the strength of feeling and to explore any options for community opposition whilst we are there."

Actually that's Cllr Ian Page's explanation.
For a lot more discussion on the whole saga (or just for Ian's most recent feedback on the Magistrates Court hearing) go to the www.thehill.org.uk general forums.

Wild Goose Drive is an interesting place to hold it.

Is it really going to be called Uniques?

I don't know why everyone is so anti. I think we should embrace our Eastern European cousins and enopcurage Pole Dancing.

If it opens it will be the biggest joke in South London.

Did anyone attend the meeting?

I noticed this morning that the windows are blackened out so are we beyond the point of no return?

Almost beyond no return - at least until the new licensing bill is passed (and even then, it depends if it is retrospective which is not clear).

Listed building control is the last chance of stopping it (but the Council may have screwed this up).

Ian's suggesting it be put on the agenda of the Ward Assembly next Monday.

I suggest a nighttime visit with spraypaint and some feminist literature
