    I remember some time ago someone recommended a southern indian or Sri Lankan take away that delivers to Brixton? I've searched but can't find it does anyone remember? If notdoes anyone know a good Turkish/ lebanese? I have a craving for one or the other!!!

    The Sri Lankan one has closed. Sams is South Indian. Barbeque is a decent Turkish/Lebanese (it is slightly confused which it is)

    So we tried Saz but their menu was going mental and we couldn't read it, phoned them up and the bloke on the phone was aware but couldn't do anything about it. We ordered from BBQ - cheers Manter it was good; great salad which came free and the veggie sides and starters were lovely. The meat was a bit sparce but as a veggie that bothered the other half more than me. All in all good value and quality.

    So is Pete Robbins ex Cabinet Member for Housing and Regen. He did not stand.

    The new Cabinet has different post in it:

    Leader of the Council, Cllr Lib Peck
    Deputy Leader (Policy Delivery), Cllr Imogen Walker
    Deputy Leader (Finance & Investment), Cllr Paul McGlone
    Cabinet Member for Children & Adult Services, Cllr Jackie Meldrum
    Cabinet Member for Environment & Sustainability, Cllr Jenny Brathwaite
    • Cabinet Member for Families, Cllr Rachel Heywood
    Cabinet Member for Health & Wellbeing, Cllr Jim Dickson
    Cabinet Member for Housing, Cllr Matthew Bennett
    Cabinet Member for Jobs & Growth, Cllr Jack Hopkins
    Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, Cllr Jane Edbrooke

    Anyone know anything about Cllr Bennett? New Cabinet member for housing. Works for Steve Reed.

    Can't really help with Matthew Bennett - except his Twitter a/c says day job in Westminster - which sounds a bit ominous to me (another special adviser?).

    As regards Pete Robbins he was rushing around like a blue assed fly at the local election count. I would have expected him not to bother if he had "moved on".

    I guess "old school Brixton" means "people without proper jobs".

    Good to see the water feature in Windrush Square working, will ride through it again when the weather warms. It would be good to have a pigeon cull, over two hundred of them shitting everywhere on the square.

    I'm taking a Brixton Mural tour on 8th June - meet at 11am outside Stockwell Tube Station. No heckling!

    Make sure you're wearing decent comfortable shoes - when I did a mural walk we walked for miles and it took about 4 hours!

    Really sad to see this tree taken down. There are a number of possibilities but i suspect the idiot who came to mow the grass must have hit it hard.

    Actually it comes from the page that's stuck up on the side of their van and from their petition page which you clearly didn't bother looking at. Neither are attributed to the Brixton Blog, which I haven't looked at. If it turns out they wrote it - and not just used the same press release - then I will credit them.

    Still, great to see you being so supportive as ever, spending your time trying to undermine a campaign to support a local trader.

    I read it, had a deja vu moment, googled, and found that I had indeed already read this news story half a year ago.

    The BBuzz article gives the impression that the petition has just been started.
