Thought the site was back for good, wrote a post, lost it within minutes. Hopefully all is back to normal now; as normal as it can be when there’s a class war being fought in my comments.
Yesterday’s Standard apparently featured Camberwell again in their Homes & Properties section, with a ‘bargain housing’ special. I’m pretty aware of where everybody stands on the issue now, but for me as a private tenant hoping to buy soon, the news is not good.
There’s a new sign outside the Salvation Army college; the strapline is “… because there’s a hurting world.” That grammer perturbs me; I’m not quite sure what they mean to say by that. Is the hurting world not this one? Is it meant to mean “… because the world is hurting”? Am I missing some metaphysical element?
The latest issue of Southwark Life says that 25% of calls to the police from Camberwell are to report begging. Is that FoxyAl and Alan Dale making the most of their free evening and weekend calls? I’m joking, of course; let’s call a truce on the (perceived) ideological differences for a while, eh? Why can’t we talk about curries again, like in the good old days?
