I'm delighted that Andy identified Southwark and the Heygate Estate treachery as the testing ground for this neoliberal agenda, as it provides a vital warning to Haringey's residents of the importance to band together, or suffer regret later. Activists leafleted Heygate, urging the leaseholders to unite with the council tenants and distrust Southwark's empty promises of a good buyout deal. They didn't listen, Southwark's buyout was at way below the market rate and they were then unable to afford new homes elsewhere.
