Of course, one person forced out when they dont wish it is one person too many. But quantities can produce qualitative change. We know that from nature. Similarly with social-life. If you affect enough people you'll get a greater co-ordinated response that will force other people involved in the process to examine their roles. We didn't see that self examination with Liverpool fans when it was a massive issue affecting huge numbers of residents, themselves and their club.Now it's a matter of volume and not sensibilities? You can't say it's wrong for one but ignore the other. A murderer is no less of a murderer because he's not Harold Shipman. That is literally conflation, double-standards and hypocracy by definition.
LFC and EFC, bought up the houses with a view to expansion if future demand and finances dictated. People who moved into those streets knew that could always happen, no doubt so did some opportunist landlords and property developers. When that time came, they exercised that right demolishing those they owned (the majority) and CPO'd the rest. If you want to talk about volumes just look at how many houses were knocked down in the same district on the the other side of Walton Breck Rd... dozens of streets worth. This was far smaller scale to the clearances that cleared whole areas nearby and in other parts of Liverpool.
No-one on here batted an eye-lid when we did it..... and the only argument for most at that time was that it should've been bigger and done much sooner.
There's no hypocrisy when saying that Everton FC were hellbent on turfing out care home residents and threatening livelihoods in Kirkby and yet Everton supporters were critical campaigners against that.
I know your position is to normalise this type of acquisition and development for the purposes of arguing the case for a Goodison expansion, but I really do think many more football fans these days are prepared to question their loyalty to clubs when others are affected by their actions. The dock stadium has sidelined that debate for us this time around.
