    GET TO FUCK.

    Nauseating ad clearly aimed at yuppies (at least they're honest about that) and investment buyers (the inference is more subtle). No mention of local people except perhaps that they provide an interesting backdrop.

    I used to work in New Cross years ago. I was always glad to get the train and bus back to Hackney in the evening.

    Anyone know what is currently on the roundabout by the Birds Nest? I have driven past and seen what looks like an artwork. Some kind of human figures and a placard kind of thing. I haven't had a chance to see it properly.

    Thaw Aye like, so it is.

    A big new Jamaican-ish bar, restaurant and 'creative space' opening in Deptford, in the arches by the station, by Christmas (probably). Sounds good and not wanky.

    WE ARE OPENING A BAR IN DEPTFORD.

    I went past it today. I assumed it was something to do with Halloween, and paid it no attention.
    I will check for you.

    not an entirely new point, tbh, the logical conclusion of the trend ruth glass identified in the 1960s. see e.g. Is London becoming more like Paris? - FT.com and darren johnson Johnson warns London becoming like Paris | Housing Excellence
