    I know that black woman with the big voice who sings outside the tube can sing very well indeed, but recently she's become painful to listen to, thanks to relentless octave-spanning 'X Factor' style whOooOooOOOOOOo's added to every simple melody.

    The poor bloke working in WH Smith looked in agony, as I would be if I had to listen to straightforward pop songs being turned into big-lunged shrieking showcases all bloody day long.

    I think that locals with money would not be considered the right kind of locals.

    I know they're capable of knocking out some really good articles, so this thinly veiled advertorial for luxury speakers (£700-£2,000) is really lazy and disappointing
    Brixton bling comes at a price

    And yes, it's another high end product of Pop Brixton from someone with zero previous connection to the area. Isn't it great that Lambeth offered the land rent free so luxury manufacturers from miles away can get started and then bugger off to Kent?

    Did I read this right? You think this is "pocket money"?

    As usual you are living up to your profile.

    I think he’s pretty clearly being ironic.

    Then I'm sure he'll be along shortly to explain his argument. If not, he'll get a warning for trolling.

    If the greedy consumption was the value you wanted associated with the shop, it would be perfect.

    Clear at least to anybody not desperate to take offence because of a personal dislike :)

    Oh good grief. Brown-nosing Blues Kitchen are doing a hideous 'Royal Burger'. All yours for just £15.

    Any suggestions for how a burger celebrating other 'special transatlantic pairings' could be presented? Starting with Wallis Simpson and Edward?
    A plain bun, perhaps, the burger having abdicated?

    A May and Trump burger: bright orange with no immediate taste but a strange mechanical aftertaste.

    Intrigued to learn that you can now get a warning for not posting when requested to do so.

    And so another thread looks to be disrupted by the same shit stirring individuals. Sigh.

    Update: I've moved some posts from the Brixton food thread into this general Brixton thread as they had nothing to do with the topic

    You may not like it, but jokes not to your taste are not automatically trolling.

    This is private eye style, middle pages, fake daily telegraph story level of humour.

    Remember when we used to discuss if there was any graffiti in the men's toilets in the Albert? I think that argument is well and truly over now!

    Should some of the food posts in this forum be moved to the Brixton food thread?

    Surely you have better things to do than start up this kind of petty nonsense?

    Chlorinated chicken between two shredded wheat

    A plain bun decorated with tiny flags....stars and stripes the butchers apron and A swastika

    All Royal burgers should feature ketchup and mayonnaise symbolising the blood and semen of Jesus and the divine right to rule

    In Spams case they are. From the start Spam came here to be a wind up merchant. As I'm a regular long time poster here I've followed Spams posting history.

    Spam knows exactly how far to go without permanent ban. Initially Spam was more forthright with opinions on such topics as Council tenants. Then learnt to be more circumspect. Posting up one liners when asked what they mean being non committal.

    Back when I first started posting here Spam wouldn't have got any support. Spam is a joker. And "some posters" find it on so amusing. Nauseating. Sad what's happened to Brixton forum.

    Btw Spam sense if humour doesn't extend to Spam. When questioned Spam loses it. Why I think Spam may have me on ignore. Though I don't know that for a fact.

    Spam is only poster I've wanted permanent ban on. Banned from Brixton forum. Spam can try out politics boards. See how Spams views go down there.

    That's pretty much how I see it, and that's why my patience is running out. He might think it's all a big laugh and a joke, but for many people in the community, some of the things being discussed here are hugely important and deserve better than being constantly disrupted by an attention-seeking wannabe troll.

    His last attempt to fuck up the Food thread made more moderating work for me, and I'm getting bored with his antics.

    Some great creativity on display there. The Windmills gents toilet is also a great example of how a male public space can be used as a canvas for creatives who miturate and need to be expressive.
