    Am I wrong to wish much much worse than influenza on influencers
    It's a properly fucked up world that allows anyone who can string a sentence together in that fashion to make a living out of it.

    Particularly baffling was the pivot from sneering at 'old' Brixton up at the top, to sneering at 'nu' Brixton about 2/3ds of the way in, while still encouraging you to go and paaaartay in the places which still 'had a bit of edge'. And however you feel about gastro-dining-class-war, the top paragraph was just disgusting given recent events in SW9. Good riddance.

    No way "intended" to be racist pretty much acknowledges that it was. Still, Brixton 1 Shitty celeb rag 0.

    Jesus. I missed that article before it was taken down. Fucksake. Who do these people think they are?
    I'm really worried that we are going to have an influx of toffs who read this shit and find it hilariously amusing to go about on urban safari, upsetting the locals.
    I worry for them too because we're not having that.

    The rich kid owner of Brixton Village/Market Row/Pope's Road actively targets the upmarket crowd inviting reviews from vile posh mags like Tatler, GQ, Vogue, Sunday Times, Bazaar etc because that's the mob he wants moving into Brixton. I suspect the 414 will soon be packed with his chinless rich Tory pals soon too.

    Exactly.
    Thing is, brixton has historically been very tolerant of this type of thing (partying, eating and drinking it up type tourists) so long as people stay in their business and stay out of yours. These braying, members club types are not likely to go down very well.

    This apology is saying we wish we hadn't said this publicly. Its not saying we were wrong.

    I don't think the Handbook have changed their mind.

    I think he is saying what a lot of people think. In the kind of circles he mixes in this kind of statement would not raise an eyebrow.

    Its putting it out on social media that was the big mistake.

    Where the losers in the gentrification war can have a go at it.

    In a way I'm glad he put it up. Its makes the gentrification issue clear.

    For me, just as big if not bigger an issue with that piece was the jokey reference about Brixton formerly being a place where one went ‘to get knifed’. Pretty unfunny and abhorrent subject to joke about at any time, and even worse now given the current knifing epidemic.

    Especially repugnant given that a child was knifed on the day their shitty article came out...

    The implication of the piece is that gentrification gets rid of knife crime. So the issues are linked.

    A justification for gentrification is that it brings in money to a deprived area and improves it.

    Whereas it helps bolster inequality within an area.

    Not sure about this. I was just investigating "rookeries" and it's quite clear that back in Victorian times they didn't just make poor people more affluent - they relocated them lock stock and barrel.

    Which is pretty much what the current London gentrification plans have done and propose to continue doing.

    As for knifing - to me this seems like a British response to American culture.
    Obviously if you could buy guns in Lidl, these would be shootings.
    But I am driven to wonder what sort of human society we have created where adolescents (largely) feel impelled to wound and kill each other.

    I'm getting perilously close to emigrating to a non-English speaking country or maybe going into a monastery.

    Possible infringement of human rights there. I always enjoyed looking out the window when the teacher got too boring....
