    Landlords with BTL mortgages always think they're doing society a favour by providing housing. The bit they don't get is the injustice of being permitted a low interest loan many times greater than their stake money. You can't do that if you invest in stocks.

    Would it were only this. This Twitter posting from 35% Campaign suggests overseas investors are jointly taking mortgages in the Strata building as an investment. Either that or they have kids at the South bank Poly.

    It's all so fucking depressing. People desperate for homes while greedy landlords are fucking raking it in.

    Just as reticent as you to divulge your financials. A touchy subject with you for which you banned me for for a month for questioning.

    As I tried to point out it's not a case of I'm alright jack. It's a case of trying to provide for my pension but you ignored that point because it doesn't suit you.

    Anyway once again I'm going to bow out because you'll end up using one of your hissy fit excuses to stop me posting by banning me or locking me out of the thread.

    God how I hate lying landlord bullshitters. Count your money and enjoy your fat pension. You've done very nicely out of Brixton at the expense of others.

    I'm thinking this stretch on Beehive Place may well be that vestige of 'old Brixton' left around the centre of town. What say you good people?

    Have you got Amazon Prime - there'll be shitloads of options online? They do next day delivery, so if you're really stuck, I can do it through my account.

    Cowling & Wilcox in camberwell has them - funny i went looking for these just the other day. Not cheap the individual colours (I ended up with a sort of kids starter pack of fabric crayons).

    Yes I saw that. It's the Brixton Hill version of the Kaff premises!

    Bring back the camping shop!

    The format is exactly the same as those two page "Spotlight on...." articles in the Evening Standard on Wednesdays.
    This isn't a bit of moonlighting by the chair of LJAG is it?

    CH1 please don't make that worse by trumpeting it unnecessarily, it is already causing serious problems.

    Cheers for the offer, managed to bribe a mate to go to Cowling and WilCox in camberwell to pick some up. Still, very kind of you, much appreciated.

    Market row wines is closing in 2 weeks, which is a shame. I know many on here probably felt it wasn't for them, but Dave who runs it is a good bloke, and Id always rather an independent in the space than a chain. His 7/8 quid wines were always nicer than the supermarket equivalent for the same price (and made me feel proper swanky with it all wrapped up nicely).

    Shame :( We used them quite a bit when we lived in central Brixton.
