    Yes, that's it. I wish I'd known about it in advance. It's great to see communities rising up.

    I think I hear that woman was the amazing voice busking outside the tube again, There's no doubting the skill of her voice but I do wish she wouldn't do that ear-piercing, TV judge-impressing WooOOooOOooAAAeeeAaaIIIiiAAAAOOOO 'look at my vocal range' thing because it destroys the song and sounds fucking awful. That is all.

    Went to 414 last night and it was great, there were nine people on stage at one point doing live dub with no machines just instruments. Shame about the airport-style security on entry but still great inside.

    If you look here you will see they applied in 2013, were refused by planning - then successfully appealed. Without reading it all, I can't tell you what is different with the new application.

    I was there too! It's always a great night there. Incredible musicians. Sadly, the security on the door is thanks to the antics of some utter bellend a few years back (no need to repeat the story here).

    I was going to post up on this but you beat me to it:thumbs:.


    'Windrush generation' deportation threat

    It's down to two things. When May was Home Office minister she brought in concept of "hostile environment". Theresa May, despite her talk of concern for "those left behind" is a right wing piece of shit.

    The second thing is historical. Post WW2 as British Empire receeded idea initially was that Commonwealth would be area of free movement like the EU. So many came here and worked on that basis. Due to anti immigration leading to rise of far right governments amended this. Pandering to anti immigration views. As afro Carribbean friend said to me recently the way some people go on about East Europeans is the same as people went on about his parents generation.

    A lot of Brexit vote was about immigration. Like in the working class community I came from in Plymouth.

    As BBC article says this hostile environment has affected a lot of people. I know Black British person who said recently she had to prove her status to her employer to work here. Despite being as British as me and growing up here. I know a New Zealand person. Worked here for years in public sector and now retired. Got nasty letter from Home office and had to get MP onto it.

    All the talk of the EU citizens working here getting right to stay needs to be seen in light of what has happened to previous immigrants. Ones status isn't guaranteed. A politician like May can come along and pander to racist feelings. And imo that's what a lot of concern about immigration is.

    My baby boy is 21 in a couple of weeks. I'd like to buy him a St Christopher and have it engraved.

    I am sure I could probably do this online, but I want to go look and touch first, and see what I am buying etc....

    Any ideas how/where I can do this....

    I don't buy jewellery so have no idea where to start....

    Maybe that shop with all the religious icons and stuff in Reliance Arcade sells such things.

    Pretty sure the little jewellers shop on Station Road (by Craft Beer place) does it.

    No. I tried there. They sell litter trays. I might go in and ask this time though. Thanks. I stupidly realised the supermarkets will sell this earlier on

    There’s a lady in Brixton village that makes jewellery. The shop is called moon something and it’s on the strip up from honest buggers and shite and cheese. I’m passing by in about 10 mins I can ask for you if you like?

    Agree with this. The only useful approach, sadly, is to apply for citizenship as soon as you can. Which isn't particularly helpful advice now that it is extremely costly and the Home Office so obstructionist.

    Nanker Phelge - Happy birthday to your boy. In my head he's still a little boy living on the edge of the park. Can't quite believe he's 21!
