I hate to be a harbinger of bad news but it looks like we might be getting another fried chicken joint - the place on Tower Approach which used to be an estate agent looks suspiciously as if it's being fitted out as such ....

Oh good.

So how many of us have to write to the council about upset stomachs and food poisoning to get these places shut down?

Why must a fried chicken outlet be classed a "de-gentrification"?

You speak as if gentrification is an unremittingly good thing.

Not all of us can afford to eat lobster at Village East every night.

Live and let live.

You obviously can afford to eat there, as you know what's on the menu!

Mmmmm yet more Fried Chicken...

They look crap, they smell awful, they create a lot of rubbish, they offer nothing interesting or tasty, they help to clog the arteries of those who use them, they regularly fail hygiene checks... but if you do really like then them Jim you already have a 1000 other identical places to chose from.

Another example is the beastly new betting shop that's just opened in the parade of shops on the Southern approach to Tower Bridge....

In what way is a betting shop the same as a fried chicken shop, please?

...if you press it, they will come.
