Greenwich Council's decision to paint over the Woolwich wall shows a high handed disrespect for residents. It's as if they don't matter.

Cant believe Greenwich Council chose to paint over the Woolwich wall. Someone's attitude here stinks.
Contractors at Great Harry say Greenwich Council owns the building and ordered #Woolwich wall to be painted over. #woolwichwall
