FFS. So sad.

A teenager has been stabbed to death in broad daylight in South London.

The victim, an 18-year-old man, died at the scene of the knifing in Corrance Road, Brixton, on Thursday afternoon (August 15).

Police were called shortly before 2pm and, along with paramedics, discovered the victim suffering from stab injuries; he was pronounced dead at 2.41pm.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of murder at 2.23pm in Tremadoc Road; he has since been taken into custody.

Police have notified the victim's next of kin and crime scenes have been put in place.

I did a separate thread because I was so shocked but I'll merge it with the this one now.

Condolences to the friends and family of 18-year old trainee mechanic Solomon Small and all others affected by this latest killing.

Pretty shocking, as they always are. I used to cut down those streets a lot too, so it feels a bit more real somehow.

Good news for anyone struggling on benefits, crippled by poor health, battling against limited opportunities, poverty and depression in the adjacent council estate. The pricey yuppie yoga joint on Coldharbour Lane say it's all going to be OK. Phew!

REJECTED
9-15 Electric Avenue - a five-storey building with basement.

Lambeth Council planning officers had recommended approval of the scheme near Brixton Market, but councillors narrowly voted against the project, arguing its size would be too dominant.

That is a surprise as I thought it was going to be a shoe-in. I've posted about it here

Yep. Another stabbing.

A young man was stabbed in Brixton in the early hours of this morning.

Police were called to Brixton Road at around midnight on Tuesday (August 20) to reports of a stabbing.

They found a man aged 22 with multiple stab wounds, who was taken to a South London hospital.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson confirmed that his condition is "serious but stable" and that his "family have been informed".

I don't know if any of you remember Lady Lykez - she used to be a bit of a regular at the Offline nights at the Dogstar/Albert/Jamm - but it's great to see her back in action. I always thought she was great.

Thanks for this.

The fate of EU citizens thread has been covering recent developments.

Fate of EU citizens in the UK post Brexit

This Boris / Priti Patel government look like they are going for No Deal end free movement immediately policy.

Which will leave those from other EU countries living here for some time with a problem.

Under May premiership the idea was for a transition period whilst people applied for the "settled status".

Its looking like this will be ditched if Boris goes for No Deal.

Some EU countries are offering support for their citizens here. Spanish Embassy is.

This is working up to another Windrush.

But worse in someways due to scale.

I get the feeling Patel must have been pissed off government didn't really use the EU nationals as bargaining chips a couple of years back when some idiot minister - maybe David Davis? Said they were.

He also says how much monthly bills are which is quite helpful
I didn't understands the water bill bit.
I know many or most people now have a water meter.
It sounds as though this chaps gets a water charge from his landlord apportioned in some way - which most likely does not represent his useage, as he says.
Are there any rules or laws about tenants having the right to separate metering of utilities?

Landlords are not allowed to profit from selling on utilities.

That said, I read it as being Thames Water setting the charge. Like any bill on a meter, the monthly direct debit is based on estimated usage and then adjusted once they have enough actual usage data. It's often inaccurate after occupants change because people's usage can vary so much. And, like any utility company they estimate it on the high side because it is safer for them and they get to sit on your cash for a while. Utilities can be terribly slow to adjust your monthly payments unless you provide them with evidence. Six months of readings should be plenty but lots of people find it too confusing or can't be arsed.

I had to have a new meter installed. Turns out it's a smart meter but had no idea. My daily water consumption is shown on my account. Helpful for the friend I have staying. The friend who spends far too much time in the shower!
