    who is it for? what slant will you be putting on it? will you pay people to talk to you?

    And will she answer strings of belligerent questioning from narky types who don't even live in Brixton?

    I doubt if her questions will be anywhere near as belligerent as your response.

    Is it normal for journalists to pay interviewees?

    It's not no. Maybe for something like a big feature specifically about them, I don't know, but they not for something like this.

    The implication that she might be intending not to pay people where she should, mainly.

    That's what I thought.

    Didn't say it wasn't.

    Hello, Not sure if this debate is humoristic or not, so sorry if I answer 1st degree : but no, journalists don't pay for interviews (fortunately, especially considering I am broke). People talk to me only if they think it worth spending time explaining their point of vue and convictions, so I can write about it in the newspapers. I just thought that the gentrification process happens in a lot of cities and it is quite new people react, so it's interesting and this debate in your community could inspire people elsewhere in the world. I got a facebook page with my name, I am easy to contact. Apologies for my -sometimes strange - english writing. Best, Anna Borrel

    You could just read the Board, the Brixton forum in particular. There are many threads that would give you a flavour of what you are looking for; that would be better than expecting information to be served up on a plate for you.

    You'd think that people genuinely interested in getting their views to a wider audience might be a bit more friendly to the journalist.

    I think you've got this assways. How is a journalist asking people if they want to be interviewed expecting information on a plate? Isn't interviewing people and asking them questions part of the research that goes into an article?

    Just reading the boards and forming an opinion seems lazy journalism to me. Many have done it in the past just lifting quotes from here. I might be wrong but it seems like this person is willing to do much more work than that and should be commended.

    It ought to be the first thing they do and it looks like they have not bothered.

    But that's not what you said at all in the original post, you said they should just read the board

    Imagine how many more pages this epic thread would be if the owners of C&F had tried to engage with the U75 community, like the poor sods who run OTC did...
