    I was just going to reply to the second last post on that thread..... despite that posters pessimistic appraisal of the monthly threads state of wellbeing its still got over 15000 views so obviously some of the bored are still about but lurking.....maybe in the hope of returning to some old beef.

    I just ignore it because, frankly, it's pathetic. Last month had more views than the previous three months so clearly a lot of people are still finding the boards of interest.

    Exactly proving my point no? The same ole beef the same ole posters have with Pop Brixton is what drove last months traffic.

    when i was in toronto a couple of years ago there were a couple of auld houses getting knocked down so they could put up a 65 storey block of condos. the advertising boards were on about breaking out of the mould and being individual. so a couple of perfectly decent, individual, houses were being knocked down so a load of well-off people could live individualistically in identical apartments. much like this nonsense in brixton.

    It feels like one of the very last old school nights left in the area. Mixed crowd, friendly vibes, great reggae and open late. It would be a tragedy of we lose the 414.

    I beg to differ because the discussion was about the community fridge being in the wrong place (which it is), it was obviously not about POp because no one came out with the old chestnut about a fork and spade on the roof.

    I had my first visit to Café Van Gogh today and it was great, much better than I expected. Lovely surroundings and delicious veggie food.

    Maybe Mr Retro will be back next month pointing out that the traffic was only driven by him pointing out what drove last month's traffic. Or something.

    The Edge, Brixton | Taylor Wimpey

    "Brixton is a district of South London within Lambeth. The development is located off Gresham Road and is positioned on the opposite side of the railway viaduct to the Fire Station. The two apartment blocks are positioned within this lively and funky corner of London"

    "Brixton is famous for its live music, murals, cinemas, and is a desirable place to live for the younger, professional generation due to the strong social culture"

    editor Taffus Maximus

    How many cinemas have we got? And much as I like them, I'd hardly say that Brixton is famous for its murals. Still, it's great to live next to a lively and funky corner of London. So damn funky around here.

    "Each apartment with private balcony" ? That's terrible English. "Each apartment comes with a private balcony".

    TBF, that's probably not the worst aspect...

    I was in Dalston few recently. The "same old beef" is happening there.

    Also chatting to someone I know from Tottenham. He said it's social cleansing going on up there.

    For a lot of Londoners what's happening to there city really angers them.

    I will be going. Betiel used to run the Art Nouveau cafe on Atlantic road. She has done a lot to support good causes. Including recently campaigning to get the Adventure Playgrounds reopened.

    What is this supposed to mean?

    When it was approved the development was to be three square tower blocks - the tallest on the Valentia Place side.

    Maybe they mean that "The Viaduct" and Brixton Square alias Carney Place are two funky apartment bocks which "The Edge" will be joining?
