    Does anyone have any idea where I could buy a fluoresent tube light bulb (just a normal 5ft one for kitchen)? I used to go the electric shop Amp on Amhurst Road but it's been gentrified into a vintage clothing shop or something.

    There's that lighting shop on Mare St at the end of Richmond Rd that might sell what you're looking for?

    There's a general stores across the road from Morrisons in Stamford Hill that sells them. Also Wickes in South Tottenham.

    Walked past this about 1130. Metal shutters down, maybe 80 people outside. People handing out (non-SWP looking) leaflets.

    Couple of the obligatory Socialist Worker sellers/trestle table with a petition of some sort and more leaflets about a meeting Diane Abbott/Gary Younge are speaking at. So all business as usual really as these things go.

    It sounds like there was also some aggro with the SWP people when they were confronted about rape apologism.

    In terms of what the "gallery" is, this piece in the gazette is a bit more digestible than the long blog post one:
    LD50: Protesters to march on Dalston art gallery that hosted alt-right exhibition

    Basically they are either far right twats who hosted someone that has praised Breivik (and was quoted by him in his manifesto) or they are "edgy" hipster twats who hosted someone that has praised Breivik.

    I found out about this from the Al Jazeera front page.

    This gives some background.

    I live in Stamford Hill, not seen any of the kids in our close as yet but one of the young men just collected by a car was dressed up.
    They'll be diving around in an open vehicle with kletzner (sp?) music playing loudly later. :D

    I've now seen a pirate, a fireman (actually a little girl) and a guard with busby hat!

    Thinking about heading out for a look in a bit. Where's the best place to go? Round Cazenove Rd or up the hill? (Never been though I've lived here for quite a long time :oops:)

    Big crossroad junction at Stamford Hill I guess, I'm going into town shortly and I get the bus to the tube there so I'll have a look.
    I can hear the music!
    Shame it's raining a bit.

    lower clapton road is shut northbound at "pembury circus" junction (or whatever it's called), between the junction and mare street i think, there was a car crash yesterday and it looked like a bit of the road had crumbled apart
