Despite all of the various occupy protests of late.
I’m still waiting for someone to mount a serious campaign to curb the power(s) of those who run the City of London Corporation.
‘ Today, voting rights for the City of London’s municipal
authority are granted to its 32,000 businesses in addition to
residents which now number fewer than 12,000. ’
What also gets me is the way in which people may obtain the
Freedom of the City.
Just how one may mount a serious campaign to challenge the
power(s) of the City of London Corporation is still open to
but challenged it must be.
A True Cockney
I was born ‘in the City of London in the City of London’,
or to be more exact
St Bartholomew’s (known as Barts) Hospital.
This means that I am a true Cockney as I was born within the sound
of Bow Bells.
Though it’s a long time since Barts has had a maternity unit,
and so there must be fewer & fewer cockneys.
My birth certificate reads: ‘ Born in the City of London in the City of London’.
Thus I am a part of the last forgotten indigenous minority.
If I were able to afford to move back to the City of London,
then I would effectively be disenfranchised by the city vote.
That is why challenging the power(s) of the City of London
Corporation is very much one of my major concerns.
