We must celebrate the positives and ignore the negatives

I don t agree with Mr Tyrrell s explanation. Whichever way you look at this, the fact remains that Tower Hamlets Council thinks it is better for the locals to remember their area by the name of anti-heroes rather than real heroes. The East Enders do not

I don't agree with Mr Tyrrell's explanation. Whichever way you look at this, the fact remains that Tower Hamlets Council thinks it is better for the locals to remember their area by the name of anti-heroes rather than real heroes.

The East Enders do not deserve such attitude, they should be proud of their real heroes such as Winston Churchill attending the scene and the council should nurture East Enders' pride in their area by remembering places and events with the names of the most respectable heroes rather than anti-heroes.

We don't want to remain stuck in the same old rut Mr Tyrrell.

When I first came to live in the East End it was most publicised for the Kray twins.

I'm sure it doesn't help the East End if they constantly get mentioned in relation to negatives rather than positives.
