Letter in the Sutton Guardian

The above letter is a reminder to the hypocrisy surrounding the incinerator. Labour in Croydon have been cleverly capitalising on the growing anti-incinerator feeling in the borough. Its difficult for them to be anti-incinerator when their cousins in Merton are backing the proposals, so they are left to attack the procedural issues and not the actual substance of the Plan.

However, one should not forget the parameters of the South London Waste Partnership were approved by Labour back in 2006 when they were the lead group on the Council.


Dear Editor,

I was interested to see Councillor Whitham, the leader of the Conservative opposition group on Sutton Council comment that he had “grave concerns” about an incinerator in Beddington, something Greens have been opposing for the last three years [Croydon Guardian, Nov 9th]. He is right to be worried about its impact. Might I suggest that he write to the Conservative council leader in Croydon, Mike Fisher who is in favour of such a facility. Similarly, could I ask the Labour opposition in Croydon, also against the Beddington incinerator, to contact the Labour leader on Merton Council, Councillor Stephen Alambritis, who is also in favour of the waste facility in Beddington. When principle is absent, one can only see a tangled web of hypocrisy.

Yours sincerely

Shasha Khan

Leader, Croydon Green Party
