Croydon better than Kensington or Richmond

If you are a fan of arson, anyway. The local rag has the London arson results in, and Croydon has suffered 728 arsons to the 114 in Kensington and mere 26 in Richmond. Tower Hamlets is the London-wide champion at 1,526, with Camden also impressing. Does TH have buildings more flammable than those in Richmond by a factor of almost 59, or are matches and so forth that much easier to come by dahn the East End?

Well, as Graham Chapman so wisely observed: "Who can honestly say that at some time he hasn't wanted to burn down some great public building? I know I have!"

James - good point. Eschewing the obvious, I will got for the New Zealand High Commission on Haymarket, because it is so staggeringly ugly. I would wish our Kiwi friends to be evacuated well in advance though.

James you will not find any great public buildings in Croydon it is a bile flavoured stew of arterial junction ,cheap office space and shoddy development in the sub moderne manner. If there is an uglier Town in all Britain I would be surprise and have certainly yet to see it

Come friendly bombs and drop on Croydon I think Sir John Betjamin would have fainted at the very sight of it

( It has does have quite a good pub though)

(Wasn`t Graham Chapman an alcaholic ?)

It happens a lot PHITCH as I well know . My father used to place rag trade business from New York intomLondon and it was pretty much comopulsory.

Actually he was bunged out of Lloyds as the Broker of the infamous Den Har Slum binder that finished Tim Sasse.(Hung himself). Quite the big story at the time

OFF TOPIC- C I was interested to learn that both Verity and I suggested the Le Pen (mixed race)poster as suitable for Coydonianation. You are particularly well informed on French Politics and I have starting to take an interest in Le Pen .His slogan "Love this country or leave it" ..appeals greatly .
I must get your thoughts at some point

(Hope the gout is getting better PHITCH apparently in the last stage of healing your knob drops off so its wings and rounabouts for you old chum ...

persoanlly C,the Scottish parliament building is possibly the ugliest in teh country,whether you'd ring the fuckers up first is amtter of conjecture in my backyard.

Newmania.have got into the french stuff via my visits here and have to say,I find it quite fascinating.

What intrigues me is the success -comparatively of the French far right,compared to our own.  



Blogger Croydonian said... 11:14 pm

I did think about doing Le Pen, but Daily Pundit beat me to the punch, and I try to avoid too much duplication here. However, my unified field theory on the Gaullists and Le Pen focuses on the way the latter connects to strands of pre-1789 aspects of French identity - church, nation, the land etc. Many French monarchists (if that isn't an oxymoron) support Le Pen, for instance. I might inflict a French update on you all next.


Could we have a bit of a reining in on the language front, please?

Not sure if 40 year old men get attacks of the vapours....

Agreewith you on the language C , this sort of thing "pre-eminent homme serieux" is quite distasteful and unwanted in decent company.Less of it old thing ..

I nearly had a seizure laughing at that.

Newmania 10:40 - don't let your personal circumstances get in the way of reality. The poster you refer to is not a "mixed race" woman and I don't know why you thought she is. The girl is from the Magreb. It's very obvious.

Don't try to get me involved as an ally.  



Anonymous verity said... 4:34 am

LePen is wily and is now recruiting voters from the Magreb, which is hysterical, but he will pull it off because no one else is speaking directly to them. This fox has a long way to run. He is sly.  



Blogger Newmania said... 7:21 am

I`m very ignorant about it Verity.You are right, I glanced at the picture thought of the phrase"Love this country or leave it" and proceeded immiediately to certain conclusions of which I approve.I think I will not be the only one to mistranslate the picture though.Nice to hear from you

Lets be honest.

The only reasonable reaction to the borough of Tower Hamlets is to want to burn it down.
