    I seem to recall some guff abut Wahaca wanting to honour/preserve the heritage of their building. But now they've just painted over the Railway sign and stuck up their corporate branding. Not that it matters now.

    Its all very well for Green party to criticize the Labour Council for not going far enough but when Council tried to enact what Green party say they should in Loughborough Junction the Green party said nothing.

    The Labour Council got a lot of stick for what was in effect a mini Holland scheme in LJ. Green Party never said a word in support.

    On a more general note, the Rum Kitchen seems to attract a shitload of trouble most weekends, and it was sad to see something kicking off when I passed the Dogstar too.

    Went to the book shop yesterday, coincidentally and when I walked past Rum Kitchen noticed it had a big sign up by door about rules of entry or something, which is a bad sign usually

    That's what a bouncer told me but I've since corrected the article.

    I saw the end of this, not the start.

    What exactly is it about the P5 bus that seems to make people so confrontational and violent!
    Lost count of how many incidents there have been while I've been on it.
    Today was no exception. Crazy shit!

    I've got loads of baby stuff that I dont need any more. I've posted on the recycling thread but havent had any takers so was wondering if anyone knew of any local groups that might want this stuff (was thinking about refuges or immigrant support services perhaps)?

    If not I'll take it all to the council recycling place but I thought I'd try this first.

    There’s a baby bank in Balham that would happily take this stuff. We just took our cotbed there. Donations accepted Tuesday mornings.

    Everyone seems to use Delivroo/Uber Eats or Just Eat these days. Brixton Pizza oposiopp the White Horse does a good Neapolitan style pizza

    Don't use 500 Degrees. Ordered 2 pizza from there last night and they arrived basically raw, with the stingiest tiny sprinkling of toppings. Called to complain, the manager asked me to whatsapp him photos before he could authorise a refund or replacement - then nothing, no response. I appreciate it was NYE so they were probably busy, but ended up having to stick them in the oven to make them edible, so might as well have just got a frozen one from the shops anyway.

    Think it's worth pointing out the edit in your article for the sake of fairness that it was most likely people being thrown out of the Market House that broke the glass.

    Were they thrown through the glass by security then?

    I edited the article as soon as I knew, and included the word 'update' in the title. I believe the update makes it very clear:
    Mind you, several people have told me that it was the same people who were causing trouble at Rum Kitchen earlier and this comment was added to the article:
