    Without trolling - it's quite funny how areas that wouldn't be considered 25/30/40 years ago are now desirable.

    A lot of people don't see life as one endless competition. Sooner a real community than a rich ghetto. No real thoughts on antic moving in, just annoyed at gentriifers who feel they know what's best for the people who already live in the area.

    Antic will do a faux refurb, strip the building to the rafters and charge more for the priviledge of edgy.

    It is changing NOW...you only have to look around - so no need to be wilfully blind.

    I'm not too keen on the competition thing either...but it's a fact you can't get away from. You can't just expect others to not want what you want. It doesn't work that way.

    I'm not that familiar with Antic...but I'm guessing it's chain...and chains nice as they might be will never have character.

    think rustic, artisan, and a feeling like you've been mugged when you've paid the bill!

    still, it'll probably put another 50-100k on the houses, so terrific. meaning an ever dwindeling number of people will actually be able to live there.

    Oh I think you will find that in some places part of the whole 'regeneration' game is to go into vibrant, culturally diverse areas, systematically price out the very communities that made them interesting places to live in the first place and then sanitize them by building abundant 'cunt hutches' under the guise of affordable housing... That £5 pint and £3 coffee doesn't taste any better and you know it. :)

    /unfortunate cunts don't know better
    /ripped off cunts by buy to let landlords and developers
    /more money than sense or lacking social conscience cunts
    /greedy cunts who buy and then sell for ridiculous profits
    /smug, arrogant and decluded cunts who feel like they are winning some big competition and like to brag about it.

    Yeah...like it's just a big conspiracy...somebody is controlling the whole thing with only evil in mind.

    I dunno...I just don't dunno....it's a fucker - you want your area to "improve" always but what does that entail...

    I agree with BM about a bit of pride. I clean the beach* where I work. I always pick up others litter in the park. I do this to make the place look nice....I ain't "cleaning for the queen" but think we need to have more responsibility for our environment....

    Fuck me - I'm officially old!

    I still can't believe they opened in Wallington tbh, well not opened but took over a soulless pub that was previously a branch of Boots.

    Just takes deluded, self centred fuckers to collude, think their winning some imaginary competition, think their cunt hutches give them some kind of status, like they are suddenly more worthwhile and important, like the world suddenly loves them more and bwoy are there going places!

    Everyone else is just bitter and jealous, haven't worked hard enough, don't know the meaning of culture and have nothing to offer the neighbourhood.

    I was looking at a place a few years ago then realised I was about 50 yards from Selhurst Park..I couldn't deal with that :)

    Bless them.

    I don't have one, haven't done for over a decade. Keep up the puerile comebacks and avoid the discussion though it's in keeping with your pointless competitive streak :)

    I'd get called a glory hunter though ;)

    Or something that rhymes with that - will do and even get my mum to do sandwiches!

    Please revisit your expletive ridden rants and consider if they fit in the 'puerile' category

    Well I'll be pleased when it opens and it looks like I won't have the pleasure of meeting the majority of contributors to this debate. From what I've read elsewhere they will be too busy protesting to allow in more refugees to add to London's population.
