Brent Council's cavalier,singleminded obstinacy in how it has handled the transfer of Wembley Sports Ground to its new owners has already been similarly reflected in the way the council has actively encouraged parents to change their school selection preferences in favour of the new academy school while neighbouring primary schools have not filled their places for reception classes.
It's also reflected in their inflexible approach to insisting on the priority of this new school in the north of the borough as opposed to south Brent.
In 2007, an average of nearly 20 per cent of south Brent residents were attending non-denominational schools in north Brent.
This current imbalance in mixed non-denominational educational provision between the north and south of Brent indirectly discriminates against black Afro-Caribbean groups.
The council's unprecedented step of approving planning permission for temporary classrooms for an initial 60 school pupils as a forerunner for the new academy would appear to have predetermined any planning application for the proposed 1,600 pupil school.
For John Christie - head of children and family services - to refer to the proposed new school as a 'done deal' (letter published on August 7: 'the sport pitches will become playing fields for the new school when the permanent buildings open in 2010') reveals the arrogance of a council which has already assumed a positive planning decision for the academy.
I'd like to remind Mr Christie that the final decision still remains in the hands of elected councillors on Brent Council planning committee.
Any neglect by local councillors of the legitimate concerns of their electorate would not be easily forgotten.
