    apparently the same has happened at Tooting Lido.

    So BPP closed because of arseholery
    Brockwell closed because of arseholery
    Tooting closed because of arseholery
    Yesterday even Streatham Common paddling pool was closed due to vandalism.

    that's just because temperatures have been high for a few days - can't imagine what things would be like if the shit really did hit the fan.

    And don't forget - Brixton Poundland closed because of arseholery yesterday!

    Depressing as fuck.

    yeah a similar thing happened to a woman in the Holland and Barret in Croydon - some young'uns went in and punched her repeatedly in the head when they got caught shoplifting.

    I think actually Tooting closed because it was full and people got very angry and the police were called as a result but fucksake, people need to have a word with themselves.

    yeah - that thunder hasn't really turned into a proper storm - the pressure is high. I reckon there'll be a lot of hot and bothered people out there spoiling for a fight.

    BBC just reported that someone at Cafe Max was randomly stabbed today.

    What's the matter with people? It's just a fucking swimming pool.

    I got there at 7.15 yesterday and there was a huge queue, mostly caused by the time taken to get everyone's money. It was very busy inside. 7.45 people setting up sun loungers rather than swimming. I left at 8.30 and they had had to divert the queue round toward the lido cafe entrance as they are still taking down the big wall and the queue was disrupting the diggers and lorries.

    I just don’t get why people don’t pre book tickets online to avoid the queues!

    Randomly? :confused: :eek:

    That's how they described it. Bloke was drinking coffee and some guy pulled out a flick knife and stabbed him.

    I obviously haven't read the report (Google is being oddly tight-lipped), but when you say it like that it sounds fairly targeted.

    Mrs Miggins There's been a slight cheese accident

    You can't buy advance tickets for Brockwell Lido can you?

    I'm only saying what the BBC report said, and they said it was a random attack.

    Absolutely mad behaviour

    Yeah, fair enough. Maybe they meant in line with a gang initiation type thing.

    Yep you can. The app is showing 586 of 600 places available for tomorrow.

    Well I never!
    Can you just waltz to the front of the queue then if you have an advance ticket?

    Yep, as you can if you are a full member

    Interesting! Maybe that could be a reason why there was chaos outside yesterday. People queuing in the heat and others just walking straight in.

    Or people who have bought tickets not being allowed in because it was too full.

    Tooting makes its members queue!

    Anyway - had a lovely swim today. There were 4 hi-vised-up security guards monitoring the 10 or so of us swimming in the rain. :D
