    Yeah I heard something along those lines. Nice plaything for the stinking rich 'DJ' socialite owner.

    You can keep Herne Hill's gelato and West Norwood's cafe culture. Give me a machete waving lunatic in Tulse Hill any day.

    At the final moment before being hit, the red dot from the taser looked perilously close to his brass clankers.

    Wow. That’s scary stuff. I was trying to raise a laugh earlier but that guy obviously needs help. I'd imagine he wasn't trying to hurt anyone, as he would have had plenty of opportunity before the police arrived.

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    I did say at the end that Council Tax needed to go up.

    I think the survey is a good idea. It’s not really about garnering new ideas, it’s more about showing residents the difficulty that local authorities are in.

    The problem is that they can then use results to say things like 'but 73% of Lambeth residents surveyed wanted us to close X rather than Y' when the reality is that that's what a very small sample said they'd prefer, on the basis of no detailed information and who'd obviously prefer that neither were closed. I've started to fill in consultations in such a way that I leave sections blank if I think they are asking leading questions that provide a choice between two things neither of which I want, or if they ask a question which I'm simply not qualified to answer in an informed way. Then I fill in the comments bits if there's a thought I want to be registered.

    Can someone remind me please, does the Effra Hall Tavern have live music on Fridays?

    Every night but Friday and Monday. https://theeffra.com/#whats on

    The Junction is a great alternative, albeit with more jazzy vibes.

    I saw that today and thought the very same thing ‘ who is Ben Howard’? You’ve just saved me some Goggling.

    In a nutshell (as I've just listened to about 10 of his songs) : started off all folky cosy singalong Ed Sheeran and then decided to go glum experimental Thom Yorke.

    Guess it was only a matter of time but it looks like farewell to Launderama on Brixton Rd as it has a very closed look and a planning application has been granted
    https://planning.lambeth.gov.uk/onl.../16_01730_FUL-PROPOSED_ELEVATIONS-1705781.pdf
    Admitted it may not have the same emotional cachet as a pub but still this was still a place where community would meet and engage over the weekly wash and somewhere catering to those in non luxury accommodation a few of whom still live in the area. Will be interesting/depressing to see what it becomes ?

    Who ARE "The Beatles"?
    Well I didn't know who this guy was - and it turns out he is a person of note.
    His vignette at the end of the Standard Magazine name checks 3 Brixton businesses which could be said to be normal (as opposed to hipster etc) - at least I think so.

    I like the Notes to Strangers project. I see lots of them in my neighbourhood and they always make me smile/think :cool:
