Well I don't much remember it, but Bees fans should never forget that QPR tried to put BFC out of business back in 1967.

Now, 38 years later there is a chance to strike a modest blow back at them (other than on the pitch of course).

You may know that London Borough of Ealing is basically gifting Warren Farm Playing Fields to QPR for a new Training Ground, on a 200 year Lease.

And as might be expected, QPR are taking full advantage, including paying scant regard to the wider community use promised for the site.

Anyhow, locals are campaigning to rein QPR in, here:
http://http://www.savewarrenfarm.com/

And there is a Petition which anyone can sign (i.e. don't have to be local to Warren Farm or live in Ealing):
http://www.savewarrenfarm.com/#/sign-the-petition/4574990520

And you can also object personally to LBE here:
http://www.pam.ealing.gov.uk/portal/servlets/PlanningComments?REFNO=P/2015/2387

Meanwhile, if you can get your hands on last weekends Ealing Gazette (freesheet), there is a very professional and informative wraparound from the campaign, also available online here:
http://www.savewarrenfarm.com/#/gazzette-coverage/4589971813

Finally, here is a brief TV clip from 1967 showing the power of Bees fans when it comes to taking on those imposters from W12:

"Save Warren Farm as open space for nature and the growing population of Ealing.
Say No to this our largest open Metropolitan land in Ealing being given away for free for 200 years to a corporate company.
Say No to loss of sporting facilities for local Schools and minority groups."

Signed the petition, 855 of us so far. Would be good if we could get a few thousand Brentford fans signing it.

Petition signed. It is scandalous that Ealing Council are realistically gifting them the land when they are a business situated outside of the borough

OK, so I screwed up the original post - and my mental arithmetic - but this thread has already received 350 views, without seeing 350 people sign the Petition (or anything like it) :nono:

So here it is again, it only takes a minute (literally), you can remain anonymous if you like, and you're already online, SO SIGN THE BLOODY THING!

P.S. Thanks to those who already have signed - even if it wasn't QPR, it would still be a bloody scandal :mad1:

It's all quite mean spirited and spiteful isn't it? :(

I did enjoy doing it though. :D

If the Fernandes airline goes tits up at the end of the month this petition might become academic.
