I’d imagine it’d be stopping on the slow bit.
When I commuted from Tulse Hill I used to get the Thameslink and it was utter carnage, always late, sometimes cancelled and completely fucking packed. When it got to Herne Hill it seemed posh people would compete with each other how loudly and assertively they could call out “could you move down please!”. Wankers.
Then I changed jobs and started getting the train into London Bridge which oddly was like a dream compared to the Thameslink, seat everyday and much more reliable.
It's a far more peaceful ride....and misses the Herne Hill posh cunts completely...leave them to their cattle train and their middle class mooing
This looks good!

Intro/Launch for this years Brixton Design Trail
Brixton Design Trail Launch
I used to be all for this but I'm not quite so sure what I think of it now. It sure doesn't feel as inclusive as it should be.
Need to get in at the launch to ensure its Brixton flavoured - smooth the edginess and stabilise the vibrancy!

Can anyone recommend a nice pub to take the mum for lunch on Sunday? no where to posh or expensive, just some decent food. My first choice, The Conquering Hero is booked up. Don't mind a bit of a drive out to the leavfy suburbs or beyond if necessary.
Bloody power cut in kemble house. All the other buildings still lit up. Weird!!
The power is probably being sucked up by the nu Town Hall that has all its lights blazing just about every night.
What a waste of money!!
Power was off for hour and half. Right in the middle of my inkmaster program!!
King and co at the clapham end of acre lane does a great Sunday lunch.
Menus/prices are online.
I thought the whole lesson of Carillion was that cheapest wasn’t always best value ?
In that case why outsource at all?
The Sun of Camberwell (on coldharbour lane) does nice sunday roasts. Does get a bit noisy and full of young people.
Though from the governments perspective de-unionisation and deskilling was a big advantage.
I heard there was some specific restrictions on that building having the lights on after a certain time at night in the planning permission because of the affect on residents on Porden Road. Anyone know if that's real?
Staff are working from there Monday ....

The local Town Hall makes it into Private Eye's Rotten Boroughs feature (Issue 1462). In brief, spending on ordinary jobs down, spending on senior management and consultants up.
Thinking about it, I doubt Lambeth currently have the capacity to design a housing scheme themselves anymore.
The dodgy bit here was getting a consultant in to help with the preparation, and then awarding the whole project to their employer (or so it appears).
It is very disappointing that such possible abuses only come to light nowadays when a wronged party threatens to sue.
Yes, totally agree. The completely unforgivable thing is the conflict of interest. The people’s audit leading leading with “they didn’t give it to the cheapest bidder” is really weak criticism.
Not going for the cheapest bidder is potentially something to be applauded.
Unless the value judgement is based upon some dinners out, and the promise of a none exec directorship when you next change job.
Unless it's Carillon.
I think the problem with carillon was they were the cheapest bidder.
Yes, of course. I got that completely wrong.
