    Is anyone actually sure whether she has been operating legally all these years? I'm hoping she has just so they can't use that as a reason against her

    She said they were revoking her licence, so it sounds like she has been

    Oh good, and mismatching chairs is a reason for revoking a licence? :hmm:

    This is just disgusting, that's her livelihood.

    Aside from that, everyone loves her food. Goes to show that the people who make these decisions don't live in Brixton or know anything about it.

    Where's the link for the petition?

    Gentrification.

    Perhaps she should have put a fuckton of frosting on the rotis in a big swirl. :(

    This is really out of order...she's so much part of the market now even after only 5 years.

    From the sounds of it this could be the thin end of the wedge, a sort of 'first they came for the roti vans' type of thing.

    I'd be really concerned about what else the council will decide isn't 'in keeping with the market' next. :(

    Private Eye would like this for their Rotten Boroughs column

    Maurice Picarda Actually, might as well flounce.

    Would they? Features on corrupt councillors and sweetheart property deals appeal to the puritan in Hislop, but I don't think that the Eye cares much for rotis. Unless the van was listed in the Pevsner Guide to Lambeth, in which case they would scream blue murder.

    It would tie in with stuff they've already done about Lambeth iirc...a sort of adjunct to what's gone before.

    Isn't a link... It's a lined pad from a pound shop, bless her. The northerner tried to discuss something more formal but she got a bit flustered.... May nip down to chat to her tomorrow. Friend is drafting a letter to chukka ummana ?spelling for me... Will post it once written

    Yes, people come from out of Brixton to buy her rotis. But I think you may have hit on something, does anyone think Jay Rayner could help?

    Hiya, a petition has been set up for this online too now - http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/protect-the-guyanese-roti-van-on-brixton-station/ - and we've just put up a quick piece on the blog referencing urban75 too. http://www.brixtonblog.com/campaign-sign-the-petition-to-save-the-guyana/8608

    What are the thoughts on what can be done? A community meeting on how we can help to protect traders is currently being organised at 3pm next Saturday (venue tbc) too - would be great if people could come.

    Think I've seen your tweets this morning. Keep them coming and I will share as widely as possible. :)

    Can you do some double checking on the exact reasons for her being given notice? Maybe get a butchers at the letter or other correspondence. And compare to neighbouring traders. It would be a shame to get people campaigning on the wrong premise.
