    • Personal Attacks
    Quite. Because clicking on a link to some facts is really hard work.

    And we know that while this is a rip, organisations and prices have been misrepresented on here before by your good self. So it's always worth giving people the opportunity to check facts when you post.

    I posted up a tweet that accurately reflected the prices and you have no right to turn that into a personal attack or to lecture me on what manner I should post up accurate information or local opinion.

    Take a warning for that because I really have had enough of your tiresome personal attacks disrupting thread after thread. If you continue with this personal beef, you will be warned again, and if you carry on, temp banned in line with our rules.

    • Disruptive Conduct
    I think you'll find that I acknowledged the prices are a rip off. I do not send personal attacks. I'm sure you're a lovely bloke.

    You are welcome to send me a warning. If I was the administrator of this forum I would send a warning to somebody that sent out inaccurate information about a sports club that offered very decent discounts to people on benefits. And when challenged on it simply ignored it. Because I think that is dishonest.

    But i understand why as an administrator, who is very busy, that might have slipped under the radar, and it must be difficult to be consistent in one's moderation.

    Please accept my sincerest apologies.

    I'm not going to let this thread be disrupted by your tedious cross-thread beef, so you're now banned from commenting on this thread for a month.

    I don't understand how Lambeth have done a deal with Picturehouse but not put in agreement that staff at this site get LLW.

    GLL staff at the leisure centres , for example, get LLW now. Which is down to Lambeth.

    shakespearegirl just worked out taglines

    Lambeth said obtaining LLW was attempted during the contract negotiations but wasn’t achievable! Crock of shit. As a LLW employer Lambeth shouldn’t have entered into a contract of this size without insisting on LLW being paid

    “Wasn’t achieveable at the target rental income we desired” is what they mean.

    Has Iceland gone for good or just a refurb?

    Refurb. I think it reopens end of November.

    Hopefully, the child who was shot last night will recover - physically, even if not mentally - from his injuries.

    Facebook tells me we've got ourselves a taproom which opens this weekend (open Saturdays and Sundays):

    Tap Room — Second Wave Brewing

    Will try and give it a try this weekend for science. I know. I'm a martyr :cool:

    Just popped in. Quite small, but nice, typical taproom affair. Only a limited selection at the moment (4 beers and a couple of soft drinks). £4 a pint which isn’t too bad. Nice to have another option in the area :thumbs:

    Just had a letter through saying Barclays is shutting in June. Won't affect me particularly but pain in the arse for anyone who needs to go into the branch on a regular basis.

    I guess Barclays has been on borrowed time since NatWest closed and became Pedder. They expect people to go to Brixton.

    It will be a kick in the balls if it becomes another estate agent, and we lose the ATMs. Also, I'm sure it isn't great for the staff.

    That ATM is a nuisance for pedestrians though. I'll be pleased to see it gone.

    It’s probably the least troublesome one as it’s slightly set back.

    ION it seems both The Railway and The Hope were broken into overnight :(

    This thieving douchebag broke into the Railway last night. Anyone recognise him? Message the pub if so.

    Apparently there's been a spate of break ins in the area recently.

    colacubes Well-Known Member

    See my post above. The Hope was also broken into last night.

    ETA seems it was about an hour after the break in at The Railway :hmm:

    The ATM outside the post office is much better placed.

    They appear to be filming something in the Electric Cafe.

    Lots of trucks and a big catering van....so maybe a film, or something expensive drama...

    It was also featured in the last scene of a new BBC3 comedy called Jerk I caught the end of the other night.
