Iíve lived my whole life in London, aside from 3 years at University, and I canít see myself leaving any time soon; I still love it.

Canít agree at all with the assessment that itís Ďfallení.

Itís interesting to read all this talk of how all these dangerous ghettos have formed - there are countless areas which are infinitely safer and more desirable than even 10 years ago; Brixton, Peckham, Lewisham, Elephant & Castle have all been gentrified beyond recognition, and appear to be continuing to do so.

I started working in Lewisham back in the 1970s today it has lost all it's character and looks more like Croydon every day. Soulless high rise tower blocks dominate the high street and surroundings but the local people cannot afford to buy or rent them. The number of dwellings between Catford, Lewishm, Deptford and Greenwich has gone up astronomically and all the council cares about is the increased tax this brings.

Yet this new "prosperity" doesn't trickle down one look at the high street says it all. Dominated by fast food shops, bookies and pound shops. There is no decent pub or restaurant in sight it's a dump.

God I sound like Steeleye and Pussay moaning about trickle down but I don't recognise any gentrification just more blocks of flats.

 


One more point

You mean your keyboard.

Well, you have my sympathy.

Anyway, what's with the 'deluded' comment? What do you think is deluded in the thread?

Iím a local person who owns and lives in a high rise block in Lewisham, so I donít particularly agree with your assessment. The majority of my neighbours are British.

I donít quite get the point on the number of dwellings in SE; in light of the housing issues, isnít that a good thing?

The shops/restaurants will come; it takes serious time for an area to change to that extent; Lewisham in another 20 years will be unrecognisable - youíre already seeing a load of these trendy sorts of pubs/bars and cafes opening up in Lewisham, assuming thatís what you mean by character. The residential investment only really kicked into gear in the last 5 years or so.

Ok genius, the caps button is broken on your computer.

Have you got anything else amusing you'd like to say?

never existed , a south london stereotype by writers who didn't have a clue , only fools and horses never really reflected the south london i grew up in and live in .

funny enough, I find it exactly as I remember London as a child in the 60s.
I assume the writers are fairly old, so have based on their memories.
My dad had a brother & 5 sisters who lived Dagenham, Bethnal green, orient, Bermondsey and other areas.
one uncle was a caretaker, ran a block of flats just like 'Del boys.
Although the areas deteriorated as time moved on, I remember they seemed pretty clean & tidy with a genuine community spirit.
The real London went decades ago.

 


Kids,tired of being bothered by your pesky parents?
Then leave home, get a job & pay your own bills, while you still know everything.
