    I could get that place up and running in one dry afternoon.

    Also - I'm not fussy about cleanliness generally, but there's something about eating cereal anywhere that isn't immaculately clean that freaks me out. I very seldom even have cereal at someone else's house, and I certainly wouldn't trust this pair of cunts to wash up properly.

    add the cost of staff, rent, imports, milk cleaning up etc etc..... how much is a coffee these days? wouldnt see people kicking off about buying one in a shop for £3 when you can get a jar for £1 in tesco.

    So much hate. They're not hurting anyone - it's not like the area is being newly gentrified.

    You're all getting old.

    True, but that could be said about lots of things. I just think £3 is a lot for a bowl of cereal that's all.

    Age has nothing to do with it. The attitude and continued gentrification of tower hamlets and other boroughs is doing real harm actually. Like them, if you knew anything about the area you wouldn't post such nonsense IMO.

    We're talking about Brick Lane, not Tower Hamlets at large.

    You may be, I am talking about both. This bullshit isn't restricted to BL only.

    And I'm well aware of the damage gentrification does, thank you Ms Patronising. I just think this instance is a) symptom, not cause and b) bolting the stable door long after the horse has bolted.

    Anyway, I'm just being contrary. Normally I'd be the first to stick the knife in to the wacky twats. I think I'm just stung by all the beard hate.

    That's rich Mr Patronising, given that you reduced the disdain of this kind of thing to being about age! :D

    I love beards, I always have, how do you think I feel, conflicted I tell thee :mad:!...these guys are ruining my beard fetish for me! :p

    It's not the concept, I don't especially hate hipsters and it's not even necessarily the price (though it is a bit rich to charge £3 for a bowl of fucking cereal) but the complete lack of awareness that yer man demonstrated and his ridiculous and arrogant refusal to engage on the matter which puts me off.
    I won't visit now. ShiftyJunior will have to take me word for it that Lucky Charms were a thing...

    Gotta say. There's about a million other people this reporter could/should be asking this sort of question to. Like, these two are obviously total fuckheads and the fact that they get the resources to set this nonsense up is grossly unfair on all the people in Tower Hamlets who'll never get such great opportunities ... but... they're not actually responsible for poverty in Tower Hamlets, they're not responsible for our capital city being used as a plaything/money tree for real estate investors/agents or even the vacuousness of modern subcultures. They're just regular strength arseholes being pandered to by a society that doesn't know the actual value of anything at all.

    Ah, but maybe it IS worthwhile. It's actually a clever front for something else entirely. They are international spies. Or diamond smugglers.

    Tesco sells Lucky Charms. If you're miles from the dreaded Tesco, I'd offer to get you some and post them but given that I have just failed to post a birthday card to my brother and I've had all blooming year to plan that, I fear it wouldn't do you much good. Stale unlucky yukky un-charms, they would be. :(

    A year and a half in which they also learnt nothing about the history of TH, nor the current issues poorer people are facing in the area on account of them being swamped and priced out by developers and self-centred new business models like this one.

    Chilli.s changed the little words

    Can't believe that after a year and a half of planning they didn't have all the answers and smiles for that C4 interviewer. That was one chance of top free publicity turned into a coffin nail.

    Feeling a bit sorry for them now.
