    This is the kind of business he runs:

    Mike Ashley running Sports Direct like 'Victorian workhouse'

    Somebody has acquired Popes Road - the pound plus shop where I get my diaries every year is having a closing down sale - and hasn't ordered in 2018 diaries. I guess I will have to pop up to Walworth Road?

    Oh no! It's one of my favourite Brixton shops.

    It's the start of the final corporate takeover that's going to crush any small business that sits in a prime location.

    Yes - they did all sorts from vacuum gags, bulbs, cooking utensils etc. A bit like a mini Robills for those with a very long memory.

    Meanwhile the good news is is you want a selection of cheap diaries I can recommend Card Factory on the ground floor level of the Elephant & Castle Shopping centre - which is itself due to be demolished of course.

    It was a useful shop. I used it over the years. Bought window blinds there.

    Elephant and Castle - another place I shop at on way home- under threat.

    Best shop in brixton. It always has the things that you can't find anywhere else. My go-to shop. I'll really miss it when it has gone.

    Sports direct will be a very poor replacement.

    FFS. Brixton Market has joined the Billionaire's Plaything club, along with this country's newspapers, luxury hotels, jewellers etc. The plutocracy is getting stronger every day. I never thought they'd want in on Brixton. You couldn't make it up. Almost makes me want to vote Corbyn.

    Aidan Brooks of Tribeca Holdings is apparently one of the new owners of the Market. I wouldn't be surprised if he and the others try and turn it into a themed retail space like Spitalfields market is now. Aidan Brooks has form for this, Tribeca Holdings his company had their fingers all over the changing of Spitalfields Market.

    Best to shut up. I suppose he pays solicitors to google his name.

    Bringing it to you straight from the streets! DJs Taylor McWilliams (Brixton Market owner) and his chums Carl Waxberg, Sebastian Macdonald-Hall and Jacobi Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe.

    Yah. Totes. Southside! Actually hes from the US so maybe it's "Like, totally" or whatever. Either way, fuck off. Thanks.

    Part of the self indulgent DJ Privilege Posse! They boast that they've been 'reinvigorating the London nightlife scene since 2012'. God, I hate these fuckers.
