    Weird. Just weird.

    How they've got the nerve to show their faces after last year's fiasco is anyone's guess.

    Those pictures are a bit misleading.

    Maybe when J£D1 has a bit of time off counting his money he could look into this pile of Norwegian spruce
    dumped by his tenants occupying the old Normandy pub nearly a month ago and still blocking the footpath as I type...

    How can they keep letting developers get away with reducing affordable housing? Friend told me it's because it makes the development uneconomical. But he knows the targets of 40% for new builds before be buys the plot etc so if it's not affordable don't buy the land and start the project.

    What a relief. They might have installed a special bar-unit with a fireplace for vomiting into as allegedly occurs at board meetings. Things are getting lively enough in my opinion.

    There's quite evil companies set up to help greedy bastard developers successfully wriggle out of their s105/affordable provisions. It's not unusual for them to successfully do this even after the development is substantially underway (see: Brixton Square).

    I'm no fan of the Council but this is how the system is set up by central government. Yes Councils can set 40% targets. It's central government that gave property developers the right to "viability assessments". Which of course are a load of bollox.

    Property developers are into making a profit. Enriching themselves. That's how Capitalism operates.

    One cannot expect characters like Knight to behave in any other way.

    My problem with this particular Council, supposedly Labour, is that they believe Capitalism can work for people's good.

    Take Pop Brixton - "social Capitalism" or the Council ideological belief they can influence property developers. Such as Network Rail. Work with them to produce "social" outcomes.

    I can see the Council powers are limited. Through no fault of there own.

    At the very least I would like to see local Labour Cllrs taking a more publicly critical stance towards property developers.

    People like Jerry Knight are Capitalist scum. Be good to hear Labour Cllrs say this.

    Verrmin like Jerry have been doing well out of sell off of Council housing, the gentrification of Brixton. He's only behaving in this way because local and central government don't stick up for the little man. But make sure the market works well for developers.

    The replacement artwork for the BOURGUEST bridge is up on Brixton blog - I don't know how to post pictures up here but it says 'Come in Love' on one side and 'Stay in Peace' on the other, in green and red. My first reaction was childish giggling cos I have a very immature sense of humour.

    Just to say that I took it to Goodways Electronics in West Norwood. It was a firmware issue, me neither, and cost to repair is £38.00.

    I guess 'Come/arrive with Love' would be too many letters.

    Cheers for posting the pictures up. You deserve a nice cup of tea now and maybe some biscuits, make it an immediate priority.

    Thank you. I impressed myself and it was a simple right click then 'copy' and 'paste image'. Not sure what happened with the Goodways post tho.

    Interesting. It's just a 5 minute job - you plug the TV into a PC (probably) and download a file from the manufacturer's web site. Or maybe the TV can grab the file on its own, without the help of a PC. The firmware is a bunch of instructions for the chip which controls the telly. Every electronics gadget has a chip and firmware - phones, cameras etc. They usually have a firmware update procedure explained in the manual. I've never heard of a power supply going on the blink because the firmware is out of date. Most odd. Sounds like the manufacturer didn't get the firmware right in the first place. £38 is very reasonable, what with the overheads for a bricks 'n mortar shop. And you've saved your telly from the landfill for a few more years. :)

    The Esso sign over the bed and the medicine cabinets in the kitchen...so that some boring cunt with no taste can buy that furnished-from-a-skip vibe. Authenticity with no effort.
