They close our schools insisting the birthrate has fallen and thousands of schoolage children had supposedly moved away...now we have not enough schools and children are being forced to travel miles.
They sell off our churches saying no one attends....then build piddly little things which have no character....
The pubs are being lost throughout the borough and turned into residential properties, now they want to turn the Final Furlong into a restaurant - or is it another Nigerian Church!
Seriously the pub is revoltingly decorated outside, the inside is not much better, I have used the pub several times, I don't like it or the clientele ( I must have gone there on an exceptionally bad night)
They used to serve meals which were good value and tasty.
But either way don't pull down another bit of old Southwark, the management may change for the better, if the karaoke started earlier perhaps you could get me out quietly before 1am!
