Would that be Wimbledon Village?

Biro,

Sadly I can't claim to have had any involvement in the wonderful creation of any of the SoBo-type words that could save SE1 from any nasty individuality and will hopefully ensure at least another 57 branches of S***bucks by tomorrow.

If only I could have made it as an estate agent.......

[see chatter for details of planned unbranded SE1 cider-drinking session next Weds. It will be a good place for you to start the 12 step plan to turning your collar up!]



...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.

Ivanhoe, I do hope you didn't misconstrue my last post (cue bugle) as me having a pop. I feel that we are probably of the same mind. Thankyou for the invitation to drink cider. My colleague here tells me however, that cider is evil, the devil's work. Mind you, he also said that a fish needs a bicycle like a horse needs a carrot and I didn't understand that. This probably isn't the forum for that kind of thing.

Not at all Biro. I thought it was very funny (hence drawing your attention to drinking on Weds - cider strictly optional, other drinks cautiously welcomed).

Look forward to hearing more from you

Don't know how to make this into a hyperlink. There must be an estate agent one. "Agent" makes them sound like something other than a 12 year old in a crap suit with a Becks haircut and a compulsion to tell big fat lies. I prefer the term "horse trader". Inaccurate I know, but it goes a little nearer the important truth.

this is useful too. Avoid the pitfalls of modern usage.

Jan,

Stay lost. It's the best way to be. Just think about finding your way down to the pub on Weds. Would love to meet you.

"WANTED: Someone with taste, means and a stomach strong enough to buy this erstwhile house of ill-repute in Pimlico. It is untouched by the 20th Century as far as convenience for even the basic human decencies is concerned. Although it reeks of damp or worse, the plaster is coming off the walls and daylight peeps through a hole in the roof, it is still habitable judging by the bed of rags, fag ends and empty bottles in one corner. Plenty of scope for the socially aspiring to express their decorative taste and get their abode in 'The Glossy' and nothing to stop them putting Westminster on their notepaper. 10 rather unpleasant rooms with slimy back yard. 4,650 Freehold. Tarted up these houses make 15,000."

I think SE1 now needs a plain-speaking estate agent to rival Roy Brooks (the deceased founder of the firm who sold properties in post-war Chelsea not the current firm based in Dulwich!)

His collected ads from the 1950s and 60s Brothel in Pimlicowere republished a few years ago.
