    Thanks. It looks like we might have a flatshare, good location, good price, but the room is impossibly small so I dunno how that's going to pan out...

    Railway teacher central tonight. Tulse much calmer. Phew. Tonight will be the start of a messy weekend for many london teachers.

    The near-Swastika signage on the front of the actual property seems an apt way of celebrating the 'demographic cleansing' of the area.

    He should try and seek compensation from Thames Water for consequential damages.

    The more likely cause of his issues is the 'new demographic' in the immediate area. There's nothing he can do about that.

    Which new demographic?

    I don't think it's hard to see that the demographic around Tulse Hill and West Norwood is changing.

    These new bars, pubs, wine shops and organic cafes are not opening up for the people who have been here a long time are they?

    Leigham Vale flooding again after that downpour. Not as badly as last time but badly enough all the same.

    eta apparently St Julian's Farm road water main has also gone there.

    Plus Brixton Hill obviously.

    What. A. Mess.

    Wow. I never saw I'd see the day. I guess we've become more trustworthy a demographic :D

    ETA: in Chelsea where I work, the local Little Waitrose's self service tills don't even have bagging area scales, meaning they totally trust the clientele and one does not have to put the product on an scales plate after scanning it. So one could sneakily put extra products in the bag without any alerts being triggered, but clearly no RBKC resident could possibly contemplate such vulgarity, so I'm sure they've never lost a thing.

    I don't think they allow me to get my 10% student discount. I've never made it work in the Streatham Hill ones.

    There's no better feeling than buying £11 worth of shopping and getting a tenner in your change from a £20.

    And, before you ask, I'm not a student. But you don't have to be to get an NUS card.

    So you're a fake student?

    N
    Nope. Just a non full time student with an NUS card, which is perfectly above board. You just need to register for a course which is affiliated to NUS. Some of these courses cost 99p. Then you get your NUS card and it's 10% off at the co-op, half price Spotify, free Amazon Prime, student prices at the cinema, 25% off on Grand Central Railway etc etc.

    2 cartons of milk at the co should be £2. I get them for £1.80 with my NUS card and then 5% off that with my co op members card. Once I get my refund it's £1.71.

    I tried to register for one of these courses before but got nowhere.

    I got six months free, then half price after that. And because I was already a Prime member, they refunded me the membership I had paid!

    Last week for the White Hart. I fought and fucked and drank and danced in that place....encountered total cunts and some decent folk along the way.

    It'll save me some money not having it there between the station and my house.

    So what's happening to it now?

    Don't really know. Been sold off by Heineken. It's being stripped out on Monday. Probably end up being a fucking Tesco local or something...

    It's such a shame. Given the area's upwardly mobile leanings - and the footfall to the nearby Railway - you would have thought that with a bit of effort and nous the place could have thrived.

    So put in a cheeky bid for it - or just walk out with it at closing time. Can't see the Landlord objecting all things considered

    Ideal if you ever go into a crowded place which has been designated " No standing"
