Re: Fewer accidents and lower speeds in first year of 20mph limit, figures suggest

No one actually adheres to the new 20mph limits. None of them are actually enforced with fixed cameras and not once have I ever seen a mobile scamera team operating on a residential road or even a main road in our neck of the woods. I doubt there has even been one single prosecution for breaking the...

Re: Labour MP for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova comes out in support of a People's Vote!

You should have listended more to hug a hoodie Dave before the election. “Bigger the majority the softer the Brexit” Instead you got rid of Jane Ellison who spent every weekend campaigning for Remain down on Northcote road and replaced her with a Marxist Corbyn acolyte shoehorned in from some Charit...

Re: Labour MP for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova comes out in support of a People's Vote!

I have absolute zero confidence in the Electoral Commission after the events in Tower Hamlets and Lutfur Rahman a number of years ago. They refused to take action against the corrupt Mayor and in the end local residents had to take out a private prosecution to get him removed. Another of our public ...

Re: Labour MP for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova comes out in support of a People's Vote!

The choice was clear - we even had a leaflet sent to every household explaining to us what we were voting for and the potential consequences of been outside the Customs Union, Single Market and ECJ. Nothing that was said during the referendum had any impact on my decision. I knew which way I was goi...

Re: Loan to renovate the living room.

If you have a mortgage then speak with your provider about borrowing more for home improvements. The terms should be more competitive than personal or other types of loans.

Never ever go down the credit card route.

Good luck.

Re: Labour MP for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova comes out in support of a People's Vote!

The biggest lie of the referendum came from the PM of the time.. “An in or out referendum. When the British people speak, their voice will be respected – not ignored. If we vote to leave, then we will leave. There will not be another renegotiation and referendum” We then had a GE - where both Labour...

Re: Labour MP for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova comes out in support of a People's Vote!

What is the point of voting in a second referendum if the politicians won’t enact the result of the first. The Remainer Government along with the entire media establishment having been working flat out for the last 3 years to delay and overturn the result. We have not had any real negotiations so fa...

Re: Balham bistro used to launder dirty money by notorious Italian Mafia group 'Ndràngheta

It might shock you if knew just how many of these establishments are involved in nefarious activities. Small takeaways and kebab shops, hairdressers/ barbers, nail bars and tanning shops all favoured as a means of washing money. The only businesses that seem to be able to afford the rising business ...

Re: Food Hygiene Scores!

It used to be ok Akash about 10+ years ago but they had a change of ownership, the friendly indian staff all left, they put a huge TV screen on the back wall and food and service went way down hill.  I used to be such a good customer they even used to send me a xmas card but I haven't bothered to ea...

Re: Balham Park Rd Murder

Two ‘honour’ killings in two days last week in London with this and the crossbow incident in Ilford.

Part and parcel of living in a diverse and culturally enriched city I guess.

Re: Shocking footage of van ramming into car on Battersea Park Road

Saw this unfold on Prince of Wales Drive. I believe the guy in the van was trying to defend himself against a very angry and very aggressive driver ( the man in question had a knife) Had no idea it esclated to this extent Looks like reasonable defence to me if threatened with a knife. I've noticed ...

Re: Man dead and suspects on the run after Battersea fight

The details of this murder don't make good reading for our local constabulary.  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/10/18/father-of-two-regularly-confronted-drug-dealers-beaten-death/ It seems this poor man had a running battle with the drug dealers on his estate and despite the police been inform...

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

Starbucks has closed (permanently), apparently in 20 years they only managed to make a profit once. I noticed that too today, when driving past. Anyone know if there is already another shop in line to replace them? Looks like Starbucks is struggling across NVN. Now both Starbucks closed on Northcot...

Re: SW11 mugged at knifepoint in front of our 3 kids

Well said Tommy. It reminds me of when Liz Hurley's nephew was almost fatally stabbed in the borough earlier in the year and the only CCTV the police released of the suspects was a blurred picture of a car with the number plate blurred out even more. Still no arrests 6 months on and with an appeal a...

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

I have never been too impressed with the fish stall on Northcote Road unfortunately. I remember when they had their own shop which was better. ... Moxon’s ...rude customer service. Problem is most the new younger residents who have moved in and replaced the families in the area wouldn’t know what t...
