    Yes...quite.

    It was all a bit weird cos it was in an empty office block on a trading estate. At first I thought 'this is all a bit cheap' and it was a bit cheap, but the puzzles and the game itself were very clever and (trust me I don't do fun and games) I liked it...

    It was then I had to suffer a team meal in a chain restaurant in Milton Keynes....and then try and get the fuck back to London ASAP..

    I think there was a rape on Tuesday night off Rush Common. About 30 police at the tube yesterday evening.

    We did one at work a few months ago and it was great fun. I was surprised I enjoyed it as I hate team building :D

    Although doesn't your position as a landlord disqualify you from commenting on anything to do with human affairs?

    Easier to type "Zzzzzzz" than to attempt to justify being a rentier, eh?

    Very few places that aren't extortionate or selling artisanal fucking avocados on pulled sourdough these days. Sorry, not very helpful I know! There is the greasy spoon in the market, the one that's been there forever. Up from Esme's.

    Sunday is great - the standard of musicianship is astonishingly high and there's a proper old Brixton vibe there - I really recommend it.

    I'll be gutted if the developers get their way and turn the 414 into shitty luxury flats.

    After seeing first my grandfather and then my father get fucked over with their pension I'm making sure it doesn't happen to me. This is the only way that makes sense to me where I can ensure that doesn't happen to me.

    I'd rather society was different. I'd rather the significant tax my wife and I pay looked after us with a state pension when I'm 65 and I didnt have to do this. But it won't and I'm self employed so I feel I do need to do this.

    So I couldn't give a shooting shit what you and that wierdo Pickmans thinks. I'm looking me and my family.

    How many properties do you own? If you're paying "significant" tax then you must be raking in a fair old amount out of your tenants. Which must be nice for you.

    I seem to have missed something. Does Mr Retro own the market?

    As ever you're totally wrong. I pay significant tax in my day job. This will not however make a jot of difference when I'm 65 so I'm looking after that as best as I see fit now.

    He always seem reticent to say anything on that score. But it seems to be a case of "I'm alright Jack."

    Truth is there's quite a few rentiers on these boards, but they're always coy about admitting it. It's not hard to work out who they are though by their attitude to all things nu-Brixton. Trendier Brixton = bigger, fatter rents.

    Anyone with a buy to let mortgage is a parasite whose vote has been bought by the Tories in the most scandalous bit of gerrymandering of the modern era.
