Fusion Lifestyle, The City and the faulty alarm, GLE leisure centre

The unmonitored intruder alarm was sounding loud as ever from 23:05 till 23:25, no one was in attendance, the Police do not respond to the intruder alarm, City of London do not respond to this alarm, Fusion do not respond to this alarm. 

Does anyone know what the alarm is for?

Maybe it's an alarm to signify "all clear"... ie, no cause for alarm.

That makes perfect sense when the logic of the corporations department of common sense is applied.

Do you work for the Corp?


Certainly do, and we're all terribly keen to make things nice for the new residents of the Fourth Barbican Tower when they arrive. So it's lights out early for you lot I'm afraid, an 11pm curfew for Golden Lane, to clear the streets for limousines and Fine Dining... after which any council tenants will be shot.

The alarm is for the purposes of practice, to get you all in the swing of things.

Jolly well done for noticing, Golden Lane!

Maybe they could erect a peace wall like West Belfast? they are great for community cohesion, and would cut down on the use of a  shoot to kill policy and the subsequent lengthy legal cases.

Fantastic idea, but all in concrete... keep it Brutalist ;-)

Plenty of razor wire and roving flood lights directed inwards, and maybe  ramp up the activation of the intruder alarm, all  this could possibly increase the use of the estate as a film location? Increase revenue?

A Brave New World.

At last, I live in a Gritty Urban Location! Can't wait to tweet about it.

Nathan, must dash... I'm scouting a Shabby-Chic interior. Let's finish this deal some other time.

Nathan......Ben Edwards from our Fusion LC will be at next week`s COL meet in the could raise the matter with him then perhaps?

I sit writing this at home with the windows closed in the heat listening to a petrol driven water pump that vibrates the windows, that has been used to clean the tennis courts since 9am, they have just finished one of the two courts, the workers have ear defenders because of the noise. Great to see the leisure centre gets the attention that the rest of the estate does not. Fusion gave no notification of this, would have thought it would have been a matter good relations with residents, apparently no concern to them. Nevertheless, its great to see the leisure centre getting the attention that the rest of the estate does not.

I think Fusion have carte blanche to do they please with the support of the Corp, doing nothing effective about their faulty intruder alarm that has been an issue since the leisure centre opened, and overcrowding the courts running netball tournaments, Fusion have attended these meeting in the past and pay lip service to the issues that arise from their management of the centre, and since it is a minority of residents who are affected by Fusion I think the majority of  residents are in support Fusion.
