    The sign has been there for over a month apparently.

    I see Dawn Foster who writes for the Guardian was blocked from there Twitter for calling the latest flats in Brixton a "dystopian nightmare"

    I thought there in your face advertising campaign was about causing controversy. Ie getting criticism works in there favour getting more coverage. But no they are offended. What a bunch of wankers.

    But what can one expect from property developers. They really believe they are bringing there wonderful entrepreneurial skills to regenerate London.

    I think Lambeth have fallen down on this as well.
    As far as I can see the ONLY consultation on this development is an internal one.

    They have a duty to make them take than banner down IMHO.

    If people can be offended by Peter Tatchell or Germain Greer at Goldsmiths, I can be offended by this sort of misuse of the English language evoking sleaze.

    Are they really going to say "cum live on the Reeperbahn"

    editor only you can answer that!

    I have no idea on what you have until I have a good grope.
    But I bet you're not in the business of milking invisible cows so that you can get yourself hard. :)

    They're trying to spin it into something that they gave a fuck about until they were told to take down their shitty sign. Now it's Block Angel and apparently all about RAW natural materials and penthouse roof apartments.

    Are they aware that 1) the Angel is actually Norf; and 2) their development is probably closer to Angell Town than it is to Brixton Town Centre.

    No. They have no idea that we already have an Angell Town here. Because they have no idea what is already here.

    Also, that lion seems to have swastika-ish loins.

    'Raw Natural Materials' ?!?! what the fuck does that mean?

    It is as meaningful as is their characterisation of London as an "off-the-cuff" city.


    They are using the sand and gypsum as it comes out of the ground. Raw and unprocessed.

    You know, if I've contributed anything during my time on earth, playing a part in stopping Brixton being inflicted with a development called Block Porn is something I'll settle for.

    How much will repeatedly calling their 0800 number cost them?

    They could of course have had a banner of Mr Benedict John Angell Angell's tomb - but perhaps having an angellic host type Angel was more upbeat

    There's also the angels that our boy Blake saw in the tree at Peckham Rye.

    I wonder if this Vanquish fella is going to try to claim that his development is "bang under the Angel Tree" now that he's changed the name.

    So lyrical...and yet I feel short-changed by their baffling omission of the word "curated".

    And nobody's written any reviews for their FB page. I do hope urbanites will fill the void.

    They're not inviting comments and even if someone did, they'd be deleted and the user blocked quicker than you can say 'twats.'

    Sheila brought to my attention the lion and union jacks. Looks like setting up some kind of British Nationalist movement. You couldn't make this up. What a bunch of tossers.

    Not just me then.

    It could be that they're just trying to co-opt a current corner of interest. Just cashing in on a fad.

    Or it could just be idiocy. Like them who dress like nazis because leather coat cool style etc.

    Or it could be something more subtly nasty.

    Either orthor, it's fucking horrible.

    If it's accidental it's no less nasty,

    I've just now gone past on the bus and the "porn" signage is still up.

    Have they given -or been given - a date for this sign to be changed?
