I don't want them to.
What about you?
why do you want to take it away from them?
Not far from my flat there's a "welcome to Bromley" sign.
What do you think about that?
I've been to Hayes a couple of times. It is a truly magical place.
Where am I thinking of?
just a lot of quiet soul searching
Why have two places which are basically the same, London, you dick.
and also that it was the vile cesspit of the world.
I thought it was about the Hayes that is near Heathrow. I guess I knew Bromley was out Kent (scum) way.
So I don't give a shit.
and your childrens' children
I'm an old grumpy cunt who doesn't like to go out now. Where were you in 2005 TfL?
coz i'll be able to get to my sister's with marginally less changes
have you been to the aquarium? jellyfish!!
going back soon
last weekend while hanging out in the animal walk thing i saw a goat do what looked like a skateboard trick (minus the skateboard) off a tree trunk stump. it was one of the best things i've ever seen
Bit of devil's advocate, isn't it.
The tube = more people = more bellends though. Higher house prices.
Would be great at the moment though what with all the line closures.
and is full of bellends anyway.
(The fact that I live 30 seconds away from a fucking art uni is neither here nor there)
can afford to get taxis everywhere.
and they were both free Uber ones
More that people that don't like public transport and get taxis all the time, everywhere i.e rich people
putting someone off. You'll be 100 years old by then
of reasonably wealthy folk from out of town moving to certain parts of London and then saying they don't want more folk to move there because, y'know, it'll spoil it for them.
You're just as, if not more, complicit in rising house prices than a new tube line is.
*obviously* the tube coming down here would be wonderful
Us economic migrants to London need to fight for our rights.
I'm going to Peckham tonight actually. Might finally go to the Spoons!!!
has a pretty chunky amount of `just LISTEN to yourself` in it.
Unless you were being largely tongue in cheek of course, in which case I retract my mild hostility. SRS BSNSS though.
you're not LME.
Once they finally get off their arses and get it finished Peckham Rye will look like Chelsea.
I'm all for it.
Camberwell really needs a tube station.
which would mean Camberwell misses out
even worse than Old Kent Road. Camberwell just seems so far from any tube stations at the moment.
I'd miss all the horrendous Word Art signs on the shops!!
I think the fact there's nothing at all down OKR and it's much more in need of the economic spur than Camberwell and Peckham would see it go there. It's also cheaper and a more direct route
first time there, this woud've been useful then but maybe not in future.
that building a mass transportation system through a densely populated area would be such a lengthy process!!!
So that I could have bought a property in Peckham.
Imagine reading this sentence 10 years ago
look at the fuckin price of that
justifies sticking an extra £50k on the asking price.
especially south-east London into central. people can get buses which are much slower than this'll be. trains tend to be what, 10-15 minutes apart? and that's in areas with lines that go directly into London
the issue is, as ever, how do you improve low-income areas for the people without leading to gentrification and the less well off people being pushed out to new ghettoes. if you haven't guessed i'm not talking about the DiS user demographic here.
the overground has something like 6 or 7 stations in SE London. i mean, if you think that covers all of SE London, well, that's an opinion at least i guess.
the Overground also isn't direct into central London. Brockley to Central London, EVERY user would have to change, either at Canada Water, Shadwell, Whitechapel. that's not direct, that's not quick, that's still an impediment and a less desirable journey for everyone. on the tube, there are at least some no-change journeys, which should be seen as more ideal.
