Never, ever, ever, ever, ever
and what's all this Stateside bollocks people keep referring to on TV?
ah right, us SW2ers are down south aren't we
Does that make the SW9ners (spit) uptown?
Something wrong there, and no mistake.
ffs minnie Yes you are
Get orfff my land
Well, it's hard to think that way when you're UP A HILL
Nay, nay and thrice nay!!! They are not "technically correct"
SW9 is "the postcode zone known as SW9". SW2 is "the postcode zone known as SW2".
By an accident of history their numbering follows the alphabetical order of the postal sorting offices closest to their centre when postal *districts* were first adoped a century ago but that does not mean that the name of the sorting office is part of the official postal address.
Those organisations (yes, I do mean you, British Telecom and Orange!) that use shoddy addressing software to insert an extraneous "Brixton" into every SW2 address (including those next to Streatham Hill station) and an extraneous "Stockwell" into every SW9 address (including those south of Coldharbour Lane) are wrong to do so.
I stand corrected
Quite. The idea that Brixton tube, Brixton police station, Electric Avenue, Atlantic Road and the Ritzy are in Stockwell is just wrongheaded. The people who provided that data must be the Dalston types who clutter up Granville Arcade on Saturdays.
Downtown Brixton means central Brixton. Just because downtown is used by the septics doesn't mean it's alien. As former rulers and custodians of the mother tongue we can claim to have invented all their stuff.
Wherever you are in London, Brixton is downtown. It's at the centre of everything. Westminster, Covent Garden etc. are just suburbs.
As funny as I find your post, I will never, ever, ever, ever call anywhere in the British Isles downtown
Or... it's just a somewhat arbitrary and uninteresting way for a big corporation to separate post into different piles at sorting offices.
You are my hero.
The Ritzy is in SW2.
It's all a storm in a teacup if you ask me. As a bona fide Brixton resident, I am more than happy to welcome our SW9 cousins as honorary Brixtonites.
Downton's in SW2.
Re Crispy's boundary map...I lived on Solon Road many years ago and the cut off point between SW2 and SW4 was Sandmere Road.
There's a power cut in the area covered by a sub-station in Ferndale Road -mostly SW9 I guess. Engineers due on site before 9:00 I'm told.
A year out of Stockwell and look what happens!!
That reminds me of the Portlandia cyclist clip
I'd get on to the feds about that
23rd March, first sighting of the baldy sunbathing beast of Brockwell:
Even the terrier doesn't want to get closer
I hardly see how it's any of your business what onkey does on his lunch hour.
Puts hairs on your chest all the lasagna and chips.
And what is it puts hairs on your back?
I wonder what he calls you?
Fat fuck, presumably.
the South London Press do this as well - it's pathetic and wrong. They say things like "Brixton Police Station, on Gresham Road, Stockwell...." And it's amazing that their subs dont even sort it out
They've probably got rid of all their subs.
Separate names with a comma.
