So is any SW2-er ever going to come up with a credible location for the their version of where the heart of Brixton supposedly lies?
Face it. The real heart of Brixton is the bustling vibrant street markets - all you've got are noisy highways into SW9 and dull civic buildings stuffed full of civil servants!
actually sw9 is pronuounced sw grime. as in grimey and street and yoof and... stuff
Of course not. If we come up with an answer and prove ourselves, that'll put an end to this lovely thread
Actually SW2 is pronounced sw yooohooo!, as in a toff's hunting cry or as in a Tamara to Tallulah geeting (as they pass each other in their 4x4s)
the sign on the door of the ex-claire's says vodaphone.
Oh good, more mobile phones for the poshingtons to bellow into.
there's nothing more 'street' than a mobile phone. most crack dealers have several.
that's the most lame justification yet - who the fuck believes politicians?
Nooo, that's GenTile (TM) - 100% slate-effect roof coverings
You're barking up the wrong tree. You see, in SW2 we take a more sustainable and ecological approach - there's no need to concentrate all our best amenities in one central area and endure the subsequent crime, litter and congestion issues. We reject the centralising approach and prefer to locate our amenities in the community, near to where people live. For example, our best drinking establishments (The Windmill, The Elm Park, Mango Landing etc) are spread throughtfully throughout the area meaning that residents are never further than 312.8 metres* from their nearest pub. This brings a higher quality of life and level of chilledness to SW2 than could ever be experienced in SW9.
*According to the latest research - carried out briefly in the head of Brixton Hatter...
Typical! One posho (from SW9, natch!) talking about another posho who likes buildings.
"Art, Justice, Literature and Science". Posho pursuits one and all. Typical "swine" rubbish.
Us SW2 poor folk have "Graffiti, Prison, Pornography and Bomb-making" as *our* municipal ideals.
(Eris save us from those weirdoes down the hill)
That's true. You lot prefer to drive around in your 4x4s while dropping off the kids, driving to the supermarket, gym, opera, regatta etc
Can't disagree with that.
SW9 is for the urban street warriors anxious to score crack or interact with the bustling, hustling heart of real Brixton while SW2 is for the gentrifiers out for a quiet stroll to their SUV.
Nah, it's pronounced SW Crime, 'cos it's where us SW2 poor folk go to expropriate a new car, DVD recorder or mobile.
Sorry if it's already been mentioned but it's a long thread.... But isn't SW2 Streatham Hill?
NO IT BLOODY WELL ISN'T
Well it is, but only because we gave them honorary status as SW2 citizens
ahem, Nikolaus Pevsner was an Asylum Seeker........
(that's a refugee in oldspeak)
SE24 Unemployment count (March 2004) 520
SW9 Unemployment count (March 2004) 1881
SW2 Unemployment count (March 2004) 2233
Tsk.. further up the hill you go the more work shy they are..
SW2 is Brixton - based upon the system of postcodes which works alphabetically. SW9 is Stockwell. Even the SLP agree with that!!
I reckon us marginalised SE24ers need a support group. Too posh for Brixton, too plebby for Herne Hill. It's tragic, it really is....
Has SW2 been crowned True Brixton yet?
Not on these boards matey-moo........
Just as soon as you show us where the lively, vibrant heart of SW2 Brixton is!
Ya can't judge a community on flash bizazz and bright lights Ed.
SW2s got SOUL, simple as.
And that precludes him from being a posho how exactly?
I think we can safely say he was a naturalised posho who wrote.
BTW, I'm fluent in "oldspeak". I even remember "old money".
My point exactly!
So when these miscreant characters are most desperate to make it appear as if they have some substance, and that they are not creatures of spin alone, they don't tootle past the 4x4s to the Town Hall. They hit the mean streets of SW9 (with nervous twitching bodyguards tucked carefully out of camera-shot).
