    That looks like Splott market?

    There used to be parties over the road from there in another warehouse owned by the Joneses (no relation). I remember DiY and a few others there

    And the council, police and Walesonline are pushing the "aggressive begging" line which is bullshit, most just sit there and say nothing, a fair few with their heads down.
    I'm around that area and in town a lot and don't see aggressive begging yet people have bought it and parroting it now

    Also heard that they are trying to get the homeless out of the city centre in time for xmas
    Can't have people spending money they don't have on crap people don't need seeing the homeless out of the corner of their eye now can we!
    One group who serve food to the homeless in the city centre have apparently been told they have to move to the outskirts

    There are extra officers, privately funded by FOR Cardiff Business Development, an organisation all the businesses operating in the city centre contribute to. Their purpose is to remove 'aggressive begging' That's defined as sitting in a way that might lead people to think you would welcome their change. So, being homeless. It's a fucking disgrace that the council and police are treating people like this so people can indulge in capitalism on The Hayes without having to bear witness to its consequences.

    Another consequence of this I'm noticing people sleeping rough in places I've never seen people before. Cardiff Bay Retail Park for example.

    exactly that! it just pushes people out to other areas and then they're harder to find and help

    Cardiffians - urgent help needed!!!

    It's my birthday next Saturday. I have no idea about anything going on and my usual venues have shitty stuff.

    Any tips? Bonus points for small dark spaces playing house or disco!

    came up on tweeter today

    Cardiff Docks, 1894, Lionel Walden

    he seems to have done a few others of Cardiff, although in some cases, the locomotive / station looks a lot more American. The signal post looks a bit questionable for somewhere that's clearly not main line, but otherwise :)

    (anyone who knows the patch may have more to say)

    It's for my mum, and she is, but they've not managed to help her so much this time round.
