    Is it Southern Gas Networks digging up Gresham Road at night to get double pay?

    Maybe they're digging it up so that future tenants at The Edge will be able to cut their own groove with gas in their ultra-expensive apartments?

    I think they stopped around 12.30am.

    Anyone noticed the dog running around opposite the Barrier Block with what looks like a drain cover round its neck?
    Is this a new canine fashion statement, a novelty deinfestation process or a form of animal cruelty?

    Oh, that dog is usually seen scuttling around Windrush Square. It seems to have a liking for random bits of street furniture.

    Kicked off outside the domino club. Eight cop cars in attendance.

    They want to watch it.

    With Rachel on suspension and the Lambeth "People's Audit" due up on the Sunday Politics (it is rumoured) the Honorable Member for Finance (Cllr P McGlone) might be casting around for another asset to sell. A pair of semi detached villas in Coldharbour Lane must be worth £2 million - even to Lexadon.

    Re domino club, just remembered that on Sunday night tried to go in there and they were charging entry money (£3 i think it was) and searching bags. Never seen that before.
    We didn't go in in the end but wonder what that's about, if its somehow connected with the above or if I just didn't know that things have changed recently.
    Didn't seem any busier than usual at all, no special event on far as I could tell.

    I suspect all late venues can be required to have security staff who might be called upon to search bags.
    Maybe the police warned the club management following the incident on Saturday.

    About 7 years ago there was a problem with the Medussa (sic) in the railway arches opposite.
    The police produced some very hair raising hearsay evience to the licensing committee.
    This ended up with the Medussa being required to put in an "arch" after their license review.
    Then they closed down.

    I guess with these shebeene type places it's a balancing act between attracting customers and avoiding things going wrong.
