Dutch Cow - my point is I really don't give a toss about how much my flat has gone up or down ("My flat has trebled in value since I moved in. So what?"). I bought it as a place to live in, I like it here. I've got no intention of flogging it. Programmes like this highlight areas where bar...

I don't see what the problem is. Programmes like this are aimed at people who want to buy a place, stay for a couple of years until the prices go up then move on. They don't actually want to settle, they're only interested in profit. They don't do anything for an area except make it unaffordable for...

Who cares if house prices are going through the roof or dropping like a stone? Why not just make what you've got your home and be happy with it?

No doubt this will be particularly upsetting to those posters who seem to feel that modern, smoke-free, comfortable environments should be the exclusive realm of the middle classes. I hope so. Far too much snobbery on this thread... I've shown it to a few 'professional people' and the attitude has ...

Me and the other half had a bit of think about what we'd do to the place and we decided what was needed is: - sofas! so much space, and everyone loves sofas. -some more interesting lighting. Loved the lights round the bar but something nice hanging lights (big 30's style chandelier?) would look gre...

The power of the internet - my advert for dumping stuff in Springfield Road has paid dividends! We now have a fridge-freezer to go with the rest of the crap they've dumped!

Can someone dump a Ferrari and the keys - Friday will do, I'll be at home all day. Thanks.

Greg, you have enough money to live in more upmarket surroundings, you obviously don't like associating with the likes of us, why do you actually live here? You'll be complaining that the ciabatta in the Adelaide in Penge is a bit stale for your liking next.

Because it smells like a pub and doesn't have the waft of chardonnay and overpriced gastro food? This is South London, it's a pub - it smells like a South London pub.

Fly tipping - what is WRONG with these people??

I'm angry. VERY angry. For the past month some inconsiderate piece of scum has been dumping stuff in Lawrie Park road. First it was a fridge freezer, then a mattress, a chair, a car seat, another mattress and now a whole bloody bed. Always in the same place. As soon as the council takes the stuff aw...

If it's too intimidating to complain in person what about online. I did a quick search and found this in 'howtocomplain.com', this bit specifically for Arena Pubs:
