In a decision that is open to interpretation, Boris Johnson has sanctioned (subject to all the usual protocols) Spurs’ redevelopment of White Hart Lane. This of course does not suddenly mean Stratford is out of the equation.
But it might suggest that the Mayor’s office were seeking to be seen to being fair and at least leaving THFC with an option when they decline the Olympic stadium redevelopment proposal.
And it’s the idea of Stratford that has some fans up in arms.
Tim Framp, who has gathered more than 2,00o signatories including local parliamentarian David Lammy to an online petition “Say No to ‘Stratford Hotspur,'” has set up a ‘We are N17’ Facebook group with some 1800 odd members.
The demonstrators aim to hand out 20,000 flyers before Sunday’s home match against Liverpool as well as organise a march down Tottenham High Street ahead of the game with champions Chelsea on December 12.
