I’ve got good news and bad news

The bad news:

A family in Bushey Hill Road have been hit by E.coli three times in a year. The infection was probably picked up from mouse droppings. I hate mice, ever since I saw one in my kitchen. My humane principles go out of the window; I want the fuckers dead.

Speaking of vermin*, a Camberwell-based rapist has been convicted of a ten-year-old attack, at least his second such offence.

The good news:

The Camberwell SE5 photo pool is inundated with Camberwell Beauties!

Camberwell Beauties

  1. Mushtimushta — I’m glad we’re tight again.

    I don’t look at the SE5 forum that often as it seems a bit uptight and I’ve got little interest in politics (I really don’t believe that we can make a difference in the grand scheme of things).

    Is it likely that my days of swimming every so often in Camberwell’s ramshackle old pool are coming to an end? One Sunday afternoon I was there, a minister was carrying out baptism’s in the kids pool.

    SE5 Forum’s not very uptight really. And it’s apolitical except from the rality that you can’t engage in change without getting political. The Forum itself aims to bring together all the bits and pieces of Camberwell and the people that aren’t currently (and haven’t been for decades) working together so Camberwell at last can begin to work for most of us. If WE — like you and me I mean — don’t get involved then nothing will ever change. YOU are already involved more than a lot of people just because you take time to contribute here.

    As for your days of swimming every so often at the ‘Leisure Centre’. If you like the idea of a swimming pool on your doorstep so to speak — then you ought to be involved because if you’e not. Who should be making the decisions about our futures?

  3. Lumme, bukowski333, you ran into that fair and square! “I do not like politics — the more local, the more anal it gets. By the way, my traditional Camberwell swimming pool/verruca culture has been turned into an African church. Why doesn’t someone do something about it?” [Sound of localists groaning under their pith helmets, using copy of Morning Star as fly swat.]
