    A young man has been stabbed on Tulse Hill estate. It’s crawling with police and forensics right now. Lots of evidence bagged up and also a burnt out car. Not sure how it all unfolded but horrible. Poor kid.

    I've asked them how many people actually took part. I'd suggest it's in the very low numbers.

    Passing thru last night junction of Stockwell road& Stockwell green was sealed from all directions with squad cars in attendance, like something heavy had gone down, fingers crossed not fatal.

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    Wild Caper is under new management and it has just taken me 10 minutes to get a coffee that’s worse than Starbucks efforts.

    Blimey - and it was never the quickest of places in the first place!

    In other news the Dogstar was forced to close early after some nutter with a knife was outside.

    Simon Stevens CEO of the NHS coming up on Marr in a minute on BBC1,

    He won Coldharbour Ward for Labour with 887 votes in the 1998 council elections (along with Donatus and Ambrose Hogan)
    Considering the minimum winning number in Coldharbour is currently 1,975 you can see the demographic of the ward has changed markedly.

    Appreciate most people on here seem to hate Chuka, but his question to the PM just now was spot on. Seems this was actually a repeat attack and the mother had requested a move from the council - which was obviously and characteristically ignored.

    May's answer was the usual flim flam about much they cared and were doing everything possible etc etc.

    I went to this. It was quite well attended and cross community - with an emphasis on this sort of music


    personally I would have liked a bit of this

    Surely Sylvester is the ultimate disco diva?
