Stuart

How could you possibly omit reference to that classic utterance from John Sullivan's Wolfie Smith of the revolutionary Tooting Popular Front (the TPF), "Come the revolution, brother.......".

Re: The Censor in RTW Speaks Again

Heard confirmation from multiple other sources that Mr Beach, not only now as Censor-in-Chief-for-Forest-Hill but also Chief Snitch on SE23.life had written to NR demanding confirmation that Nathan Bowen had the requisite permissions from the site owner, despite Mr Beach's recent online denial that ...

Re: New leisure contract for Lewisham?

I think there was a pre-lockdown piece of ugliness about Forest Hill Pool that occurred at a public meeting about the facility around an announcement about structural defects in the building. Without prior warning to the public or Fusion or attending councillors, a council official turned up at the ...

Re: The Censor in RTW Speaks Again

I really can't see Chris selling this one to many of his followers. Just as he didn't sell SE23.life or close SE26.life. There may be more than two ways of looking at the no-sale outcome, but here are some starters. First, Mr Beach could not stimulate any serious interest from any party who had the...

Re: The Censor in RTW Speaks Again

Mr Beach is off again on a rant. This time a repeat of an attack by him on the work of Nathan Bowen on Perry Vale suggesting it is "questionable" What on earth can Mr Beach see as being questionable and doesn't he realise his unstated implication is futile. Or is it a reflection of his own prejudice...

Re: The Censor in RTW Speaks Again

I have commented elsewhere that it would seem Mr Beach has joined a mass exodus of like-minded British Twitter malcontents flocking to a fringe social media company that is becoming a haven for Twitter's ousted right-wingers called parler.com. Mr Beach in a tweet a few days ago reveals his right-win...

Re: Are we lacking moderators

Not forgetting the fake driving license and passport guy who has peppered every section of the forum. Fairs fair though - it is holiday season - so who knows if Admin and/or @Stuart has taken some leave for a week or so.

Re: New Bistro in Perry Village’s Foodie Quarter

Vale, Rise, Hill and Streete all have the name Perry associated with them. Not to forget the nearby Pearfield. All rooted in the history of the pear orchards in the area. So Perry Village is a balanced and all-embracing nomenclature for the wider commune. I might agree that Foodie Quarter still has ...

Re: New Bistro in Perry Village’s Foodie Quarter

I know and trust a fellow poster who lives there and who has reliably informed me that this is its new moniker. He has used the terms in earlier posts - so I am only following the trend. Trust me - no payment or commission involved from estate agents or others. And I don't bet normally - but would y...

New Bistro in Perry Village’s Foodie Quarter

Have taken our first opportunity to have a long liquid lunch in the nascent Foodie Quarter of Perry Village. Hottest day of the year and the first break the BH has had since lockdown. The Forest Cafe and Bistro, near the Old Fire Station on Perry Vale, has a delicate balanced and extensive menu suit...

To give him (dubious) credit, he can be quite convincing and it worked for a few hours. Anyway let me put on record here that it was me who accompanied Nic to the police station to help her get to the bottom of these ‘reports’ and I was there when, after an exhaustive search, the police confirmed t...

Re: a 60 foot (5G?) mast is coming to Newlands Park

The new rules require that Huawei kit must be removed within the next few years. So we don't really know what components are being commissioned in installations now. However a few relevant extracts including a revelation that this is a mast to be shared by two providers. The 5G antennas are some 3 t...

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic
