Blur frontman Damon Albarn has criticised the gentrification of Kensington, saying:
‘I’ve seen the way communities have been marginalised by greedy landlords and property developers’.
‘All I can do is add a little more volume to the voices that must now be listened to. During the last 30 years I’ve witnessed a brutal programme of gentrification around here’.
‘This surely has to be a turning point. This has to be the moment where our government steps up to its responsibilities’.
‘No more scare tactics, no more division, just an honest, practical, caring government’.
Mr. Albarn also praised the area, calling it ‘a place where there’s a real community always evolving, always multicultural with its heart’.
