Nobes for Mayor of London?
Evening Standard reveals that Mark Noble, Bobby Zamora and Rio Ferdinand, who all grew up on council estates, have teamed up to support social housing. The trio have formed the Legacy Foundation which aims to encourage developers to build communities of mixed private rented and public housing. There will also be a heavy sport input with facilities provided on the estates to keep kids occupied during the after school period of 3-6pm. Nobes recalls moving house seven times in four years when he was growing up in social housing in Newham and all three seem to be genuinely interested in the project rather than simply fronting it. Is it too late to vote for Mark Noble as Mayor of London?
