    Wow, London to a, er, an “L”.


    "Workers at the new branch of Foxtons, Brixton Road, arrived to work this morning to the words “yuppies out” scrawled in large letters in paint across the estate agent’s window.

    The graffiti follows an earlier incident this weekend, which saw “yuck” written in smaller letters on the glass.

    Many see the arrival of the estate agent, on the site of the former Speedy Noodle restaurant, as a graphic symbol of gentrification in Brixton." – March, 2013

    What, no more TEA in London?


    Almost deleted my 1st comment to replace it with my 2nd but spotted your reply to my 1st. ;-)


    Nah, all British TEA was dumped in some remote, far flung harbour years ago.

    This was also a hot button issue when I lived in Ireland a few years back, particularly the west coast. With the Celtic Tiger boom,absentee business owners from England and Europe would buy out some of the older businesses, put their new brand in, hire Romanian and Polish workers, and at the time I was there, they began closing down the new shops as Ireland began feeling the pinch of their bursting tech and financial bubble. This left the locals with less businesses than before the boom started. I haven’t been back for a couple of years, so I don’t know if anything has started to bounce back yet.

    Oligarchs here , oligarchs there, absentee landlord is the least of our problems. Making it too expensive to live in now that is a big problem. See Aspen Colorado.

    Nothing to do with the ’toon: just noticed that this artist is listed alphabetically by first name, while all other artists on this page are listed by last name. Wonder how long this will persist…happened to me more than once in the Yellow Pages…made a difference.

    Not Evolution, that only deals with adaption of living organisms to their environment.
