Actually if you read the article there isn't any outrage as such just some reasonable questions about the nature of the event and how it might be managed. The Standard has misrepresented the views of the residents' association guy to make for a better headline. He should really have anticipated this and not talked to them because the net result is a huge amount of free publicity for the event. The original story in the Chiswick newsletter is a much more accurate reflection of what is actually happening.

That's not to say there won't actually be genuine outrage about these plans. 4-5,000 people turning up to a local park for the primary purpose of having a lot to drink is not likely to be a pleasant experience for people in the local area but I suspect the great and the good of Bedford Park will try and put this proposal to bed quietly and subtly with some well targeted lobbying.
