I was trying to work out what 'an old working biro' was a euphemism for then realised I was reading too much into it

E & C has been an area with late-night entertainment and nightlife for years, and one view is that it's nice to have a later bar around there, as an option, rather than a nightclub.

Lambeth has almost completed its agreement to a nightclub (Abba themed) 6 evening a week in among social housing so don't be too optimistic. Unless you think Southwark is much more responsive to its local community than Lambeth.

I'm having a back piece done by Angi who works there. Love her style and skill! Was very pleased to find someone local. Have a look at the artists' books and see if anyone catches your eye. Really depends on what you're looking for.



[SE1 Discussion] Marathon road closures

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 23:13:09 +0100

I could write a lengthy diatribe on this, but it would bore you all to tears, so I’ll go for the abridged version.
We live some 90-100 metres from Brunel Road SE16, which is on the marathon route.
Not unreasonably, all access to Brunel Road was closed from around 08.30-09.00 today.
At 14.40, my wife walked out on to our first floor kitchen patio balcony, and looked toward Brunel Road.
“Can’t see any stragglers”, she said, “give it an hour, then go to Tesco at Surrey Quays and get me some stuff, okay?”
I went one better, I left it until 16.45, then drove to the end of Rupack St. SE16, where it joins Brunel Road.
There was a Road Closed sign there, and four or five traffic cones, plus a disinterested looking young Asian guy in a hi-vis jacket.
There were cars going along Brunel, left and right, so I asked if I could get through please.
“No, I haven’t been told to remove the cones and sign yet.”
I pointed out that cars were going past us as we spoke, and that Jamaica Road and Lower Road both had traffic moving along them.
“Yes, I can see that, but no one has told me to open this section yet.”
I said, “What will you do if I move a cone, and join the cars heading toward Lower Road?”
“I’ll take your number.”
I gave him an old working biro, and said, “There you go, knock yourself out”, then moved a cone and went to Tesco.

[Chatter] Re: Morrisey on Sadiq Khan

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 17:47:43 +0100

I find it hard to credit that anyone, (and I’m NOT pointing at you Spartacus), would give any credence to what a jumped up, professional social outsider, clown of the first order, and celebrated celibate says.
I have no opinion on how Mayor Khan speaks, or on the man himself really, aside from the fact that I don’t agree with Labour policies.
I would have preferred a Tory or Lib-Dem mayor, I’d go as far as saying that if it came down to a straight contest between Labour, and a candidate from Marine Le Pen’s Front National, I’d be at the barricades, waving a Tricoleur.
I am however, a believer in Democracy, Mr. Khan won the election, so that’s it, he’s the Mayor.

Maybe they have some special gadgets that allow them to look at the art through the walls and this way they catch up on the latest exhibitions.

No, they do it all the time. It appears routine, I just can't figure out the reason.



[SE1 Discussion] Anyone up for early morning jogging?

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 15:38:49 +0100

Hello forum members

It's marathon day... which has given me the idea of seeing if there's anyone up for joining me on a regular early morning weekday jog? I just can't get motivated enough to go out alone so would really like to have a running buddy.

I'm a slow jogger... (11 mins a mile) and want to do this for exercise - not necessarily to enter a race.

I'm thinking of a 6am or 630am 45 min jog a couple of times week?

I live in Wade House on the Dickens Estate (near Dockhead) so a Thameside run would be great - but equally I'm happy to meet somewhere in the middle and pound the streets.

Sarah

Thank you Michel for the link London Inheritance am trawling it now..

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 13:10:43 +0100

I've been doing some research into my father's family which lived in Tenison Street in the 1910's and came across this thread so I thought I'd add some information which may be helpful to whoever might be interested in this part of the SE history.

There's a long article here about Tenison Street with photos dating from after the demolition :

AND a photo of Tenison Street from 1930 - BEFORE the demolition ! :

A local young man was stabbed this AM in the football area. Spoke to a policeman & he said he was in hospital but not life threatening. All so very sad though.



[SE1 Discussion] Webb St stabbing?

Air ambulance landed in spa gardens today.

Later on the park area on Webb St / Swan Mead was all taped off after a stabbing. Anyone have any further info?



[SE1 Discussion] Re: Elephant & Castle Rail Station

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 22:01:57 +0100

Yes I have also noticed this, and I agree it can be intimidating.

Probably worth raising with the British Transport Police, and/or Govia Thameslink Railway as the station operator.



[SE1 Discussion] Elephant & Castle Rail Station (Elephant Road entrance)

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 21:56:17 +0100

I have used this station 3 times this week and increasingly around 5-6 pm there are groups of people drinking just inside the entrance. Their manner is intimidating and I felt quite threatened walking past. Anyone else noticed this? Can’t understand why the station staff fine do something about it.

I seem to be having a moan tonight!



[SE1 Discussion] Nightclub ‘Creep’ Elephant & Castle pub

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 21:51:48 +0100

I’ve noticed that the Elephant and Castle pub appears to be morphing into a nightclub at an alarming rate. It opened as a pub and now has a nightclub 2-3 nights a week including Thursday. I believe they are converting the upper part of the building to expand capacity. I am dreading this as there is increasing anti social behaviour around the venue. Surely the Council won’t allow this?

Well luckily you don’t get to tell women what to do and your strawmen examples are just that.

There is a real contempt shown for women when people talk about examples of women having abortions because they feel like it. All studies show that women consider abortion deeply, they don’t rush into it and most feel intense relief afterward. Suggesting women do it for convenience is no different to when I lived in Egypt and people claimed women couldn’t be judges as they were too emotional.

Shouting at women outside doctors is an extension of this contempt for women.[/quote


Who is or was "shouting at women"?[/quote]

The anti-abortion protesters obviously.

Ah, America.

Isn't that the country where pro-lifers shoot and kill doctors and nurses who work in abortion clinics, and also place bombs in these facilities?



[SE1 Discussion] Re: Tattooist

I think one should be looking for the artists themselves, rather than the premises of a shop: tattooists do move on to new locations.
