    Brewdog are trumpeting their support for private healthcare on their new Brixton bar. And you can't get much more 'punk' than that.

    Does he mean the site corner of Tulse Hill and Brailsford Road, the tyre shed had this planning permission for a 3 bed house which is now 3 years old so possibly being acted on as it expires. It's beside the access to the closed Lambeth Landmark Adult Care Centre 47 Tulse Hill

    15/04890/FUL | Change of use from Store car tyres (Use Class B2) to a Residential dwelling house (Use Class C3), involving the demolition of the existing building and the erection of 2 storey dwelling house with basement. | 45A Tulse Hill London Lambeth SW2 2TJ

    I think he means the old Montego Inn site. I thought it was going to be an Italian restaurant - but only because someone on here said that ages ago.

    Good for them. It’s a good benefit. It’s taxable, but won’t be obligatory.

    Turns out, that if you (as an employer) want to get accredited ref Living Wage, you have to pay LLW. "Part of signing up to being a living wage employer with the living wage foundation is also promising to always pay a London living wage in London." I checked, it's true. I'd prefer that we all got paid more by right, but legislation to push up earnings....better than nowt.

    We are just going through the process of getting LLW accreditation. We have to meet certain criteria, and demonstrate that subcontractors working our sites are also receiving the LLW from their employeers. Everyone other than our cleaners were already getting it both in London and our Midlands office.

    I went to the CEO and told him this, said I'd like us to become an accredited LW employer, he agreed it. I immediately upped the cleaners pay, and we are on the verge of gaining out accreditation.

    What was there before KFC on the corner of Coldharbour Lane. It may have been another fast food place before becoming a KFC? Burger king?

    Pizza Hut and KFC are different cheeks of the same arse - both owned by Yum Brands, formerly Tricon
