Re: Local announcements with political message

Dead man talking - I asked admin to delete my account 2 days ago - and repeat the request again here . Since it’s still active I have to comment , hopefully my very last comment . Stuart where do you get off accusing John H of trying to censor all discussions about Brexit!? - he simply said its inap...

Re: New plans for Calabash of Culture site

Admin I think John H was saying he would NOT eat halal so doubt he would welcome your gleeful suggestion of an halal KFC. Mosy I’ve never heard any suggestion in my life that halal slaughter is less cruel than ordinary slaughter - ditto kosher though it’s so rare in this context as to be not worth m...

Re: sticky:RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

I don’t the Nando’s livery , which seems to be everywhere , is anything anyone will miss . One mans vibrant is another mans poxy ,garish chicken shop etc. I think the frontage as it stands cause less offence than other Nando’s shops and I doubt anyone hell bent on visiting it will have any difficult...

Re: sticky:RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

Not moanin’ just a straightforward observation . I think East Dulwich draws a lot of its custom from locals who walk in . Remembering how bad things got for some peole when Zanzibar was open , it’s not an unreasonable line of enquiry. If it were Croydon where they enforce very harshly I’d be less wo...

Re: sticky:RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

I suspect there will be thread around mid August along the lines of “ why can’t Lewiaham stop Nando’s customers parking on the pavement/ roundabout / up my road/ zig zags etc . Quite neutral about Nando’s - personally wouldn’t go in but appreciate lots of us very happy with it , but seriously I do w...

Re: Disgusted of Lawrie Park -Thames Water Fiasco

Have to concur, I walked past and there seemed to be a lot of suits but very little work - surely this should be treated as top level urgent given the mayhem it’s causing . One upside - because I could get out of Lawrie Park on Friday to go to the Tasty Fish Bar in Newlands Park , I went to Kirkdale...

Re: Noise from Crystal Palace festival

I have no problem with the CP festival precisely because it finishes , as advertised at 9.30. A load of selfish people playing loud music after that is entirely different and I can see why someone would be upset and wouldn’t brand them a moaner at all . EUSSR , you’d hate it living near me - sometim...

Re: fake Big Issue seller?

Is there something wrong with being concerned that what you thought was a genuine Big Issue seller is actually part of some gang activity from Romania ? And if you think the system is being abused is it wrong to stop donating to it ? People “ get “ slavery when it comes with the accoutrement of cott...

Good luck and thanks for the greyhound tile mural - at times I think those 5 millimetres of ceramic tile is all that kept the building standing !

Re: Mopeds

I think the original poster was alerting us to potential crimes and unpleasantness visited upon our persons - not bravado , derring do or other winsome sounding ways of describing these young tikes-on-bikes.

Ticket for Eleanor Marx - tonight 8pm

Due to one of our party phoning sick we have one ticket going for tonight’s performance - it’s a concession ticket but I’m sure the organisers will look kindly on a non concession person buying it rather than wasting a seat . If interested pm me me straight away . By all accounts of the play so far ...

Re: New council houses

Mosy I agree , on the one hand we are wondering why more people didn’t raise concerns about the dire design and finish of St Philip Neri and now people are being slighted for recognising the validity of some objections . It seems like the housing or more properly people crisis makes logic offensive ...

Re: Syd Society help request for pavement opposite library?

This is absolutely appalling - like cars , unchallenged ,parked on the pavement it says : you can do whatever you want in Sydenham and no by-law or local agency will challenge .

Re: The mural designs!

Rather than just complain about what i don’t want I guess I’d say the 4th one would be preferable - it looks like sign writing rather than graffiti and conjures Betjeman rather than the Bronx . Fair play to those that like it but this thread feels to me a bit “ which eyesore do you fancy? “ . A very...

Re: The Monstrosity

Excellent news - whilst I’m sure everyone supports the needs of schools there is no excuse for developers sacrificing good design and finish so they can pocket a few more quid for BMWs , hot tubs and dodgy porches or whatever these Philistines spend their money on .

Re: Don't mess with old men in Hither Green

Two things lacking in our criminal justice system - sense of. Natural justice and victim empathy .

Re: Penge Indians

I’ve never had a bad meal from Himalayan kitchen - the worst was ok once but generally very good or really very good .
In my experience they deliver pretty promptly , I’m usually still changing for dinner when they turn up.
They are really charming people too .
A very good takeaway
