    outsiders in the same way as Johnson, Farage et al are outsiders, or outsiders as they are one of the few billionaires in Brixton (I presume) cunts either way

    A little more about Village owner, Taylor McWilliams:

    POOR DOORS - THE TRUCE IS OVER - IT'S WAR - CLASS WAR - Class War

    And a bit about his DJ collective:

    And here's how he rolls:

    I wonder if this is what he has in mind for Brixton (I'm thinking the 414)

    His fellow poshboy DJ chum said in an interview somewhere that they wanted to find new places to play now that Chelsea had gone off the boil or whatever - which makes me worry that McWilliams - with his vast wealth, property connections and co-DJ pals who already own clubs - might be thinking about taking over the 414 (the director of Brixton Village is the same director who owns the shitty company that kicked Tony & Louise out). That would be the final slap in the face to Brixton.

    I know it's a personal choice, but if l was going from the tube to Brixton "village," l would go down Atlantic Road. But that's not in a song, is it?

    i was shocked and surprised to see Red Rum Lisa staring out of my telly this morning. She was on a Skype link from Durham University promulgating her views on the Peterloo Massacre (which naturally were that it was a seminal class war event).
    Personally I'd sooner of had Professor Vernon Bognador the doyen of experts on the British constitution. At least he could have commented on what the immediate and medium term consequences of the Peterloo Massacre were.

    Lisa Mackenzie is harsh woman - all fire and brimstone as I found a few months ago. Still I'm sure Sky News found her fee more reasonable than the erudite Oxford Professor, and no doubt to people in the Sky News Centre Durham sounds more Manchestery than Oxford [though anyone who's been to all three will no doubt agree with me that Durham has much more in common with Oxford than either have with Manchester]

    Here's that welcoming "new community space" that's opened up in Brixton Village.

    Everyone welcome! (if you get past the bag checks/security etc)

    Last week I saw the entrance and didn't bother as didnt feel up to getting by security. What is it with this obsession with need for burly security everywhere I go now? This is daytime not some late night club. I see the same at Pop.

    How would anyone who wanted to go in fail to get past security?

    Looks like security are stamping something on the guys hand. What's that for?

    If you think it's open to all, why are there two security guards there?

    stop people getting out when they realise what they've bought in to?

    It says “lost in Brixton” but I don’t understand why security is required here but not elsewhere in the market.

    For the same reason that many other venues, from community asset pubs and bars to musemus, galleries and others, also have them. Why do you think they have them?

    But it's not a pub or a museum. It was trumpeted as a new community space for all. Is that what a real community space looks like to you? Or would you say it's clearly more of a private drinking/dining area patrolled by security where only the right sort of people from the community are admitted? So it's not an actual community space at all. That was just empty PR flubber.

    editor hiraethified

    If that's the argument, why have them at all?
     
  27. T & P

    T & P |-o-| (-o-) |-o-|

    It looks as much of a community space to me as pubs, which are forever here lauded as community assets, regardless of whether they have security guards outside or not. Do you cease to describe or see a pub as a community space depending on whether they have security guards on duty?

    Are you actually implying that Brixton Village are employing security guards to filter out certain demographics or social groups? If so, that is an abolustely extraordinary claim to make. Please clarify if that is what you are suggesting.

    The business plans and management strategies of these establishments will have a target clientele which will exclude persons, in their terms, considered high risk and or economically inactive - unwritten policies that sort, as they see it the wheat from the chaff...

    Exactly.
