2 out of 7 oh dear
My excuse is that I rarely use the train in Hackney.
I got that and I use them every day
Mind you I guess either of us can ask Sue any transport related questions in future so we don't have to worry about it...
same 2/7 here
I use a lot of the stations; Clapton mostly, but sometimes walk up to Rectory Road or back from there, and sometimes walk back from Hackney Downs, or Hackney Central.
I do know where Rectory Road station is but I had no ideas about how many passengers use any of the stations.
That's what i scored although im not a local.
now you can say you know as much about trains in hackney as the locals.
Erm, lucky guesses . I'm much better at buses...
This false modesty isn’t fooling anyone, Sue - aka Hackney’s finest train afficionado.
I used to live next door to it. My garden was practically on the platform
I was in Hackney central this afternoon and - guess what - Wally Herbert's kiosk is now a coffee place - like Hackney needs another!
Not cheap either, £3 for a flat white and you can't even sit down but I suppose they have to charge that if the rents expensive.
That's terrible. I'm really sad that fish stall is gone.
This is great:
Today in London’s parklife: 1000s destroy enclosure fences, Hackney Downs, 1875
Technically Islington Borough, not Hackney but I saw a poster for this record in the tube station today - do you think he's pinched the idea from that hairdressing shop in Balls Pond Road - just at the Kingsland Road junction?
An article about the artist How Jack Steadman Finally Expressed Himself as Mr Jukes
that's nicked from ruddy yurts' 1992 single 'invisible man'
Ah, I didn't know that.
The mark of true genius is when people start stealing your ideas.
yeh, that's the album 'invisible man' is on.
Rashan Charles death: Met Police officer not facing charges (click for more)
"The CPS has considered the matter and decided the evidential test for a prosecution for common assault is not met".
Unfortuntely, both The Guardian and a friend of Mr Charles' family appear to be under the misapprehension that they get to choose who represents the police at such and inqest, rather then the police themselves.

As taxpayers, we will be paying for the services of Mr Beggs QC (again).
Spirit was one of the people who was robbed of his shop on Broadway Market by the council despite having built it up from a wreck over many years AND offering to buy it from them.
I remember him , got proper shafted by Hackney Council . RIP .
Very sad RIP
Arghhhhhhhh. Rest in Power Spirit.
The real insult to untold injury was that the people who took over his shop opened a poncy fish shop... I just couldn't believe how insensitive that was. Proper pained me.
