I was about to apologise for being a tad harsh, but it seems I was entirely justified, "mate". Really? Please explain how it's "probably funding [my] existence". My more than adequate tax contributions fund my "existence", such as it can be termed that, and it is in no way reliant on that big word you cite which, being a council house resident, is not in my dim-witted vocabulary.
I have no issue with gentrification, welcome it in fact, but not at the expense of others less fortunate.
You asked for such a response. From the start of the thread (and other threads), you've acted angrily at the idea of "none council supported" Bermondsey residents even existing.
When I bought my property, Bermondsey Street
was an absolute dump. It was rough as sin. Now....I wonder why that changed? It certainly wasn't due to people not coming to the area, and not spending their money and not deciding to live there, and buy there and setup business there.
You're bitter because you think you've got some right to the area, and likely to the property that you don't own.
