There always used to be a fish van on Stroud Green Rd, and also a cockle and whelk man too.

Disappearing London, someone should write a book about it.

Particularly on Sundays, for some reason.

I cant help but feel it's a bit of a shame that you rarely meet anybody actually from London in London.

I think I met more londoners living up here, there's quite the thriving ex-pat community. We often gather raaaaaahnd the old joannah to swap tales about how good to their mums the krays were.

Still a queue outside every fish shop in Yorkshire on a Friday night.

Somers Town is one place, but even that isn't as true as it was 5 years ago.

All of the pubs are being turned in to flats as well.

consequent flight to the margins, would you?

Have you been listening to that nasty Floyd boy again? I've told you about hanging around with him.

It's basically social housing, it's a bit sad

Then again, when do I see anything not through the prism of class? In that sense I'm massively, massively english.

All Thatcher's fault, of course

It made the institution of the Page 3 Girl look positively normal by comparison.

You English are very weird when it comes to sex. http://www.awimb.com/images/smiley_icons/ohwell.gif

Has that stopped now? It seemed anachronistic in the early 80s, I cant imagine it hanging about now.

Mind you Page 3 is still going strong.

You could see your face in Ma Kray's won, especially if you looked at them in the wrong way.

Back in the old days, every male over 10 could probably name at least three Page 3 girls. These days you'd struggle to name one. I blame the interwebs.

I think this is a decent demographic profile of your average sun (mouth moving whilst reading) reader
