I was on teh NatWest side so couldn't see properly, but it had a sign saying "Amusements" and "Welcome" in that same neon lighting you see on arcades or those clubs. Then, walking onto Southwark Street I was greed by a huge billboard reading: "Looking for longer lasting Sex", with "Sex" in huge caps that you could see from across the river. I am not criticising, just remarking on this slightly signs usually associated with a the West End.

If there's enough trade for another bookies, then someone will open one.I've also noticed that a BetFred has opened on Tower Bridge Rd along with another one on Walworth Rd a few months ago. It seems as though almost every new business opening in Southwark is gambling related these days. Who do we complain to at the council about this?
