    When a view completely misunderstands, or wilfully misrepresents, a well documented and researched subject then I'm not interested in hearing it.

    When a view completely ignores the plight of the poor and disenfranchised then I'm not interested in hearing it.

    "Please read the boards for a while before posting". Now I am confused.

    Do we have a definition of acting like a dick? Because it seems to be from recent posts that anyone with a differing view from the old school members of this board is being a dick. And when they try to stand up for their views and explain them coherently there is no interest in engaging.

    My perceived attacks on you have been because of your hypocrisy. In the same way that you attack others who do not share your view.

    Newly arrived poster rocks up into the forum, starts insulting regular posters, dismisses them as immature or repeatedly declares them to be hypocrites based on some really bonkers reasoning as also witnessed in your previous personal attempts to attack me.

    You know, that kind of thing. HTH.

    Try sticking to the topic rather than trying to insult everyone who doesn't subscribe to your particular worldview.

    Except it's not seeing as this new arrival is the one constantly launching personal attacks at other posters (see his posting history for more examples). Still, I'm guessing that you're just happy seeing another right wing face on these boards, eh?

    Every forum has its own unique phrases that new posters have to get used to, but thank you, I think I'm starting to pick up on these now.

    "Really bonkers reasoning" = "An argument with which an established poster doesn't agree".

    And "insulting everyone who doesn't subscribe to your particular world view" = "acting like a dick" except where (and this subtle distinction has only recently become evident" dismissing someone as "another new member to file under "probably a Tory; definitely a dick"" does not equal "acting like a dick".

    Thanks for clearing that up, have a lovely evening.

    People don’t post random photos on Instagram .

    They post what they believe to be relevant and topical ones.

    A hashtag provides context and allows it to be part of an ongoing discussion.

    Nobody has banned you yet although you are clearly ignoring the one guideline not to be a dick by clearly being a dick.

    So you think posting pictures on Instagram is exactly the same as joining in with an on going specific discussion on a bulletin board. Thanks for that truly awesome insight.

    Too much vibrancy it seems:
    Of course, the real culprit in this is people like the multi millionaire Jerry Knight and Lexadon who keep building flats without sufficient soundproofiing next to existing pubs and venues. I very much doubt that he gives a flying fuck if his profiteering results in the closing down of existing venues, but it's greedy developers who are driving the closure of pubs and clubs.

    Sums up the sheer arrogance of these yuppie/city boy/Daddy financed incomers. They want the town to change to suit their selfish needs. If I was in charge of licensing, every time a nu-Brixton resident rocks into town and complains about the existing levels of noise, the bar would automatically get an hour extension to their late licence.

    Looking at estate agents blurb for Clifton mansions/ Brixton, nightlife and entertainment gets 4 to 5 stars and no doubt that was one of the selling points to these fuckwits.

    Some photos from last night. It's great to see the Queen's Head back but I have to say the 414 is a much better venue for live music. The sound at the QH was abysmal last night and the lighting is horrible too. Hopefully the new owner will sort it out soon.

    It's a shame that the two competing nights have effectively 'split the vote' in Brixton - neither is as good as the original night at the 414.

    lets hope the prick complaining about the 414 does indeed give up his flat and fuck off somewhere else that is not opposite a nightclub that has been open for over 30 years.

    I have a couple of questions. It isn't an attack on you personally, I am not being a dick, I am trying to understand how various competing views can be reconciled.

    Assuming that "yuppie/city boy/Daddy financed incomers" are high earners, they will pay more tax. That tax will be used, in part, to fund central government grants disbursed to London boroughs including Lambeth. Is it the case that you are happy for these people to exist, to contribute more tax and for Lambeth (and thus all of us who live in Lambeth) to benefit, but you do not want them living in Brixton, or would you prefer that they did not exist at all?

    If you would prefer that they did not exist at all, what are your proposals for bridging the gap in funding, assuming (which is a whole other topic) that Lambeth could not bridge it by being more efficient and saving money on pointless projects (which I think we all agree that they do).
