..are they already here then?

If you've not heard the voices Mickey, then they're probably not here yet. Unless, like me, you hear voices all the time.

Seriously though, perhaps we could organise an act of mass mild-but-harmless naughtiness, designed deliberately to get them to speak to us.

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

By the way, anyone seen one of those mosquito devices in SE1??

No but I've heard one when hanging around QES being anti social. God they're annoying....

I had a mosquito ringtone on my mobile. Used to drive the cat crackers..

Slightly off-topic, but some places play classical music really loudly to disperse 'yoofs'. West Croydon bus station and Clapham Common tube spring to mind. The BBC covered it a few years ago, apparently the Co-Op were trying it in their stores

Classical musak is played at Elephant & Castle (Northern Line)

And E&C (Bakerloo Line), at least on some mornings - although it is proper music recordings, rather than "musak" (i.e. the real thing rather than some atrocious pan-pipe rendition). I think its great. It cheers me up. I hope it cheers the staff up!
