    Wonder if Tricky Skills knows what's happening in Coldharbour Ward. Which is Cllr Matt Parr ward.

    Cllr Rachel has finished her six months punishment. But from what I've heard is not officially back in Labour group.So wonder if she will be deselected by the Nu Labour lot.

    It's the second pub I've seen recently that has a carpet! Thank you. This might be nice.

    They beep VERY LOUDLY. Still, it's nice to know that people are crossing safely when I have my windows shut.

    Pool tables are good for dates I suppose.

    Yep - talk talk seems to be down in parts of SW2 SW4 SW9 SE5. Not sure if it is limited to them.

    Seems to be a major outage connected to Virgin but affecting Talktalk as well.

    I wonder if that is why CH1 has not managed to post links to those conversations about the pace of house price rises in Brixton which he recalled having had with me.

    I guess so. I went to an interesting lecture recently about false memory syndrome. You obviously remember what you want to remember - but also can be made to remember things that never happened.

    I only met Rushy once in my life for couple of minutes and he seemed affable enough. I do recall that in the comments on here about prices of properties which occurred some years ago he and some others seemed gleeful about it.

    I also remember discussion of over development e.g. the "house" advertised at the back of the Brixton Road Money Shop in Astoria Walk (facing the Academy) - citing floor areas and potential disadvantages for a buyer. Not sure if this was Rushy, but the person was quick to quote £X per square metre etc which to me is more than mere amateur property dilettante speak

    How this has become a case of me somehow persecuting Rushy I don't really know. If he thinks I am misrepresenting his views he can say that.

    Kindly discuss Brixton matters only here please. If you continue with your attempts to stir up beef here, you will be warned and then banned if you persist, in line with the rules about disruptive posters.

    Every post you have 'contributed' to this month's thread has had nothing to do with Brixton and everything to do with you trying to stir up shit and disrupt the discussion, and for that reason I'm banning you off the thread.

    Where can you pick up a copy of Lambeth Weekender with round Brixton Hill, Streatham Hill or central Brixton?

    Should be some in the Tesco on Acre Lane. You can also read it online: (no title)

    What are you looking for? I may have a copy I can scan in otherwise.

    Overheard just now walking home from Brixton Town up the Hill. Friday night 11:46 pm. Bloke on the phone with beardy posse standing by.

    Owen! Owen! It's Dan! ... From work! You said... But you said.... Oh I thought you said Brixton.

    I hate myself for hating these people...

    Yes my phone and broadband went down on Thursday night. Not the fault of my internet and phone provider. There was a problem across the whole area.Its back up now.

    I'm with the Phone Co-op. They said it affected them.

    Get over yourself, you great wet lettuce. :facepalm:

    He and Alex Bighead are bother dreaming of greater things, probably entirely unrelated to rumours of an engineered deselection/forced retirement of Kate Hoey, and the insertion of a less independent Labour right-winger.
    Not that I can see either of those grinning spunk-gibbons making even a tenth as good a constituency MP as Hoey.

    To be blunt, both Hopkins and Bigham are about as "heavyweight" as a flea's turd. They're both of them - like their mate Bennett - political makeweights who've got where they are by kissing the right arses and mouthing the right opinions. If the people of Vauxhall allow themselves to be deceived by either of those rectal prolapses, then they deserve everything that they get.

    If Heywood stands as an Indie, she'll walk it in Coldharbour. She's so much more hands-on than Donatus and co, that anyone Labour try to parachute in will sink like a stone.
