This did not mean that as an 'influx of arrogant and opinionated people' you describe, we forced our views and beliefs on people, we would have been run out of the area in that climate. That climate has not changed in one sense with the 'looking down your nose attitude' which is clear from the manner of your words.At least be polite enough to spell my name right.(toufan, not toucan)toufan wrote:Thank you so much for saying what i have wanted to say along with 3 generations of my family.

You see toucan, your rant makes no sense if you examine its parts.
First, if we turn the clock back 3 generations, your family could have been pointed at by a 'local' as being another "influx of arrogant opinionated people"
Second, you think that the influx of 'outsiders' "is what has ruined living here for others". On that premise, no person living in SE1 has ever had a life that hasn't been ruined by others - well mine hasn't and neither have most of my SE1 chums - rather we enrich each others lives.
I could go on dissecting your bigoted diatribe but, frankly, I am losing the will to live.
