    Just discovered to my horror that two of my favourite Soho cheap eats have gone. The Berwick St Fish and Chips which did the best fish and chips in Soho and Stockpot. The fish and chip ship shop has been replaced with yet another chi-chi eatery and Stockpot has only just closed it seems :(

    Chartfield Avenue I'm guessing. If so, it backs on to the Ashburton and no views of river nor any common?
    There are many nicer roads nearby.

    OK, so this place in Tooting does not have planning permission but it does have potential :confused:
    Offers in region of £48,000. Sold for £208,000 and then there are the fees on top :facepalm:
    Garage in Tooting Bec? Yours for £200,000

    Somebody somewhere (obviously quite a lot of people somewhere) must be earning the money to support this crazy casino. Banks aren't going to lend 465,000 unless there is a very good to excellent chance the money will be repaid with interest.....

    who they are, where they are and what they do is something I've never properly understood.

    Interesting side effect of gentrification is the closure of prisons. Holloway has closed and women are now imprisoned in Surrey somewhere I gather. Holloway is being replaced with flats of course.
    Pentonville looks next on the hitlist. The terrible part of this is that it becomes that much harder/expensive for friends and family to visit.
    Brixton vulnerable too Id expect...

    Basement ( bad things, stashes of pr0n, secrets, gloom, squatters) becomes Cellar ( Fine wines, Hobbies)
    New Shed=>garden office
    Paved over front garden=>private off road parking

    Many were shipped out to Bronzefield in Ashford. This is a private prison run by Sodexco. I visited last year and as Holloway was not replaced all the women were transferred to existing prisons meaning that the system is extremely over stretched. Dangerous IMO

  29. All of them are under threat. And should be replaced by a new nick on the same sight, but the greedy fuckers just see £'s rather than human lives and plough on making London a shithole.

    The other terrible part of this is that any objection to this will probably raise little sympathy from the usual suspects (right wing trolls on sub- press-article comments, claimant bashers, etc.), probably on the grounds that if you have a criminal (sic) for a relative it's tough shit.
