Re: Swearing aggressive man on the 319

Tourette syndrome can result in outbursts of unexpected language, but it does not make people aggressive. It sounds more like this man has mental health or substance abuse issues.

Re: Hotel in Paris

I've stayed at the Hotel des Arts in Montmartre. It's nothing flash, but a great location on a hill in Montmartre, surrounded by little shops, bars, cafes and restaurants and a few minutes walk to the metro or bus.

Re: Debenhams in Clapham Junction to close on 11 January

Don't think so, they're closing the Wandsworth Southside and Wimbledon branches, but not Clapham Junction.

Re: Grown up bdays celebration

My friend hired the upstairs room at The Phoenix, 5 minutes from Victoria for her 40th. 

You get your own bar and they do food. Don't think there's a dance floor though.

Re: What DO we want on Northcote Road???

The former Chicken Cottage opposite Debenhams (Wimpy a long time ago) has a Nandos licensing form in the window now. I'd assumed Whole Foods were taking over the whole block.

Re: Wandsworth residents can now enjoy free phone calls and mega-fast wi-fi from new network of multi-media hubs

I looked at one last night.
