Lets for a moment assume we would not allow new people to come and live in SE1 (don't get me wrong, I'm a new one too, oh and foreign to boot).
The first place I lived in SE1 was Shad Thames
which I rented from a friend. Who bought it off-plan which must now be around 16 years ago. At a time where the building manager (for teh conversion) had to have quadrupal locks on the doors and a shot gun. Was that better?
Mill Wall - one of my friends is one of their absolute biggest fans. She lives in Rotherhite and has all her life. Should she therefore be banned as a fan?
Having lived in multiple locations around the world I can see why people might feel disenfrenchised, but alternatively it also provides additional resources to the whole community and maybe even more importantly new experiences and contacts. Take the example of Shad Thames
. Were it never re-developed, Southwark council would never have raked in as much council tax as they do now.
Why can't we all give a little, take a little and get to know each other a little better. Be a bit understanding and get along? Goodness knows, we all might enjoy it! But please - nothing like the two on the first post!!
