SL's radar is about as effective as...well I don't know what. Her irony meter was severely lacking when I said I'm a MASSIVE left winger. Which I am though. D should give credit to that tim vine though as he used that joke about 26 1/2 years ago.

Not at birth. Only at All Saints...

Dunno, there's a distinct lack of '80s shoulder pads... designer beer guts seem to be in vogue.

It was Dazza! I can take or leave real ale, I go through phases. I'm on a cooking lager phase at the moment, 2.50 a pint I'd be sober not to. It's a long walk up the hill so I'm taking on liquids at base station Railway Bell.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Doombar. The pub right beside Tulse Hill Station sells it, and I like to try a couple in the 22 minute gap between trains on a Friday evening.
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.

Prize for the most surprising and welcome post goes to SLR's spirited defense of the area, and London overall!

Prize for best psychological analysis of Rik (and all of us who succumb to that toxic emotion nostalgia) goes to NikD.

Prize for most probable economic analysis goes to SL, and others of the 'use it or lose it' argument for market-driven changes.

...and we all get prizes for sticking to our guns on the need for a cinema that shows something for everyone.

Older than that. If you're sitting comfortably I'll tell you the story.

First some background: the pub sits on the edge of the land that Dulwich owns on the east side of Gipsy Hill.

In the 1640s, there was a schoolteacher called Edmund Colby who lived in Cornwall. In the Civil War, his sympathy for the Parliamentarians led to him losing his home and his books being burned.

Parliament took over Dulwich College and appointed Colby as a new schoolmaster in 1645. He was a popular and effective teacher – several boys managed to get to university – and local parents were grateful for his allowing their children to attend his classes.

He also liked to have a pint of mulled ale on a winter’s evening, heated with a poker. Twice he is said to have left the poker in for too long, melting his tankard.

But Dulwich College was unhappy about Parliament taking over its affairs. In 1654, it appealed to Parliament, which after an inquiry concluded that the college should have the freedom to choose its own staff. Despite a petition by local residents, Colby was discharged, leaving the college in 1658.

I'd like to thank my producer, my stunt double, the hair dressers at Willie Smarts (hey, I maybe be forty nine, but they make me look forty eight and three quarters)...

But seriously, this is by far the best part of London to live in, let's celebrate the bejasus out of it...
