It looks like Camberwell Green is about to be inundated with street drinkers again, as Southwark council are likely to close the ‘wet centre’ which helped drinkers address their problems while allowing them to keep drinking. The old method of criminalising and punishing looks likely to return as the solution to the problem.
On an entirely unrelated note (he preferred to drink his Tennants Extra at the Silver Buckle rather than on Camberwell Green), a quick goodbye to long-time reader Daniel Hoffmann-Gill (a.k.a. Guy Gooberman) who is moving to
the arse-end of the middle of nowhere Essex today. Thanks for the support, Daniel.
Just remembered: there was a public consultation for St George’s new plans for the Grove Lane development on Thursday and Saturday, but I only found out an hour after the Saturday one had closed. Does anybody know what their new plans are like?
