The A. discusses the urban injustices of New Labour's “new urban renewal”, that is the state-led gentrification of British council estates , on the Aylesbury estate in Southwark, London. He looks at what the estate residents thought/think about the whole process and how they have resisted, and are resisting, the gentrification of their estate. He argues that we urgently need to re-establish the city as the driver of democratic politics with an emancipatory agenda, rather than one that ratifies the status quo or gets mired in a dystopic post-justice city
