    Was this outside M&S? Somebody asked me for a fiver as I walking past there once. I thought it was a fair ask for M&S shoppers.

    I prefer the more imaginative requests for random amounts to take the person back to some random faraway location: "Hi. Have you got £9.62 so I can get back to Lower Wivelham?"

    Was he an actual skinhead or just a man with a shaved head?

    There was a chap seemingly unconscious on the pavement near Pret the other week. I stopped to ask him if he was ok and he immediately got up and asked if I could buy him a sandwich and a coffee. By the time I’d finished paying he was sitting at a table waiting for his meal. I half expected him to have a napkin tucked into his collar. :D

    Totally bald, rather than a shaven head. I didnt mind telling him to go away but he was literally going up to everyone remotely in his vicinity, including old ladies and demanding £2. Pain in the arse.

    No doubt, but he wasn't a skinhead.

    Good to see and hear the Reparations March pass thru just now on their way back from parliament.
    The icing on the cake was it coinciding with peak yuppie home time, so holding things up nicely
    some of this nu lot are known to get all hot and bothered by a heavy bass line.

    Some gang violence went down on Railton Rd this afternoon. I had to take a detour because ther3 was a police cordon not far from Lesson Rd, which turns into Mayall Rd. Not sure what happened but there was a 322 abandoned inside the cordon, along with a bicycle and a car, and tons of police.

    It doesn't sound to have been very serious, based on the news report above. Although there is very little detail.

    Sadly, there are a number of wankers in this forum whose main purpose is to have digs at you, and they're arrogant, ignorant and self-righteous enough to use any avenue to do so.

    Are you taking the piss?

    Locals think gentrifiers are "the enemy" because of the well-documented social effects of gentrification, not because people TALK about what gentrifiers do to our communities.

    Get real. Get your head out of your arse.

    I totally agree with you. I'm fortunate enough to live in a community where a lot of the residents help take care of one another - where we still knock on our neighbour's door to see if they're okay, help each other take on the council, participate in community activities. We're hoping to get together and finance an ESOL class, as some of our residents asked for one.

    Is that the best you can do? Send yourself into exile, for your own sake. You're too pathetic to survive in the real world.

    I remember turning the late, lamented loki onto Lidl's lagers - "they'll be shit" he cried. A week later "fucking hell, brilliant beer, and well cheap" he cried. :D

    If you've just had a single speed bike stolen, some brazen 7 year old kid has just abandoned it outside Pret.

    Just walked past KFC to Windrush Square and there's a small van/people mover sound system playing to what looks like a couple of hundred or more people dancing

    I get the sentiment but I can't work out who is being quoted here:
