All Just a normal part of living in London. Did you not know?

Carrying a knife goes unpunished and wont be checked for, but do t you dare eat any burgers or chips on London transport.

Yup I get it first time.
When I lived in Croydon it was nowhere near as bad as now.
Shrublands as a kid then west croydon as a family.
Couple of scraps but then walk away.
No steel in your guts.
I do think it's a culture thing and a lack of proper parenting.
Someone will go with poverty but we know that's bollox.

It not surprising if you change a community to one from a third world that it will go down hill, not rocket science.

Do any of you posting about this actually live in Croydon? I mean now, right now. Not it was better in my day before I moved out to Kent.

Why does everyone move to Kent? Apart from the art gallery in Margate its a complete cultural vacuum.

Or do you all live out in the shires relying on media and anecdotes to form your opinions.

 


said the rabid giraffe whilst brandishing his throbbing member of reason, and twas ever thus.

Did you know? 95% of people are morons.

It's a fact though.
It was better when I were a lad.
Many evenings out with 6 or 8 of us.
No major trouble.
Kent is more than just margate!
The same as parts of Croydon are better than others.
Also if no culture means less death on the streets then I will take that thankyou.

I moved away from Selhurst to Bromley in around 1995, we moved not from a dislike of Croydon but simply as the right flat came up. Moved further out when we had kids as when we did you got a lot of house for your money in the leafy Shires of Orpington.

But I moved back to work in Croydon a couple of years ago and it makes me sad. It is much worse. Shops closed down, pubs, clubs and music venues gone and the constant smell of food everywhere. On the trams first thing in the morning and on the streets.

Oh and the kiddies now ain't like it was in my day. Don't know how to have a decent scrap. All carry knives and wave them about outside McDonalds.

Sad really as I have fond memories of growing up in Croydon.but the Croydon of the 80's and 90's has gone.

Yes Kent is more than just Margate, but it depends on what that 'more' contains. I know it reasonably well but would I want to move there? Is it stimulating? No. Maybe when I'm 90.

If you mean better in the context of knife crime, then that is unarguable. However, as I'm constantly at pains to point out, this is the same for the entirety of London. Croydon has, and will always suffer from entrenched stigma built up and perpetuated over many years. A stigma that I don't think is reflective of the reality. Perhaps in the late 90s / early 00s but not now.

I am constantly out in Croydon, and have been doing so since I was 16. The amount of times I've encountered trouble I can count on one hand.

It depends what you need to stimulate yourself.
And you wont reach 90 living in Croydon so set your sights a bit lower I reckon.

I agree about the shops. But that is a nationwide issue, not just localised to Croydon. Of course, the councils failure to deliver Westfield is certainly doesn't help matters. But frankly the centre of town has been denied investment for so long and it is, albeit slowly, finally happening.
