Discussion in 'Brixton' started by TopCat, Apr 8, 2013.
Aren't they misreading the mood? Why do they think there might be trouble?
There was loads of them there, although the numbers seemed to have halved on my return journey
Was the penguin dance out in full force?
During the party there were about half a dozen police max - they all fucked off about 8pm. End of shift I guess. Then no police at all until about midnight.
Great to see one of our local shopkeepers getting his pic in Der Speigel in Germany!
Bit gutted I missed all this, but really heartened by the number of people at work (some really quite unexpected) who've been saying they were pleased to see it, and that Brixton still had some go in it. Feeling proud of Brixton at the mo .
And daughter has just dragged me over to a friend with the order to 'explain about Thatcher' so I did my best...
Also from Der Speigel
A big "fuck you" from Germany to the dead old cunt.
Do you still want one? After I read this I got an extra copy with you in mind.
Just been chatting with some of the many polis in Windrush Square - they're half expecting more 'trouble' tonight. But they didn't know that last night was a party to celebrate Thatcher's death - all they knew about it was the blockage of the road, the attempt at a barricade, the TSG callout and the looting of Barnardo's. Nobody had told them that 99% of the attendees were peaceful partygoers.
Was Barnardos actually looted then or just a window smashed?
No, it's alright thanks.
Looked at it online. Not quite the same though, but I'm a hoarder, and I know I'll keep it
According to newspaper reports, two girls nicked stuff. Don't know whether any cameras/witnesses have confirmed though
a few familiar faces past and present
Shame if so. It was probably more opportunistic than someone breaking the window with the intent of stealing. There were a fair few things chucked about over the night. Dunno, I was there till the end and never saw or heard it happen.
Ha ha true.
“Ok yah! I just love Brixton, I’ve only been here a month, and love the cosmopolitan atmosphere. Mummy and daddy bought me a lovely little townhouse twist the hills, don’t you know?!
I thought I’d pop out for a £15 burger and what ho! A street party and loads of free cheapo Brut! What a lovely place Brixton is, I’ll have to tell my friends!
Maggie? Wasn’t she wonderful? A true kindhearted lady with a gentle touch. I adore her legacy!”
I assumed they were targetted due to their participation in workfare and their providing services at immigration detention centres.
Yeah. I can see why a window would be broken but looting is a bit strong. Given that Foxtons got away with a couple of paint splatters it seems a bit out of kilter.
the world's out of kilter and it won't be right till someone sticks a stake through thatcher's heart.
Might not have been revellers at all, but some kids using the party as a cover
obviously pissed up twats never go to parties. they can't have been celebrating the demise of the foul bitch, they can't they can't they can't
Almost certainly. The only violence I was some yoot who were not involved in the party but attacked some geeky lad. Was quite nasty too, belts off and wrapped around fists
belts off and trousers down?
Their trousers were having quite low now I think about it.
they wouldn't have been able to run for it as they'd have been tripping down and showing their claggy y-fronts
Foxtons window is definitely NOT normal glass....
try it with the auld hydrofluorick acid and see what happens. but make sure you ask their permission first, and try a part of the glass where it doesn't matter too much.
Not seen this video
plenty of Urbs on that too - and a great comment by tim: "i don't think she considered taste when she was in power, so why should we today?"
