A couple of posts ago (>>>see<<<)
we cited the August South London Press
quote from Pamela Holmes,
head of Help the Aged
on the plight of the elderly because Stockwell
like elsewhere in London has a chronic shortage of Public Toilets
- here is the Help the Aged
statement again: "Toilet humor might be funny - but not being able to go out due to a lack of public toilets is a daily reality for MORE THAN HALF OF OLDER PEOPLE"
(latter emphasis added). One elderly STOCKWELL CLAPHAM
pensioner ventured forth today and got the "THISISLONDON "CAUGHT SHORT" LOOK".
All the existing Clapham
public toilets are of course now closed 24/7
- more relevant news on Thursday.

LAMBETH COUNCIL COMES CLEAN! IT'S OFFICIAL! PUBLIC TOILETS ARE "STREET CLUTTER"!!
-----------------------Click on the above image to ENLARGE text.
How lovely to learn from LAMBETH COUNCIL's propaganda rag (September 1 edition) that because LAMBETH COUNCIL won't provide adequate public toilet facilities that when it does provide very very short term night time only pop-up pissoirs ("for the boys" only of course) that it excuses itself for thus minimising even that provision by alluding to it as "street clutter" when the facility is not being made avaialble. What it amounts to in reality is that when the "pissoirs" are down there is NO TOILET PROVISION. Brilliant crass low life LAMBETH LIFE journalism eh?? Take a very low bow editor Ella Cop-Out.
Not that low life tactics are a new LAMBETH COUNCIL
In a month or so according to a 15 August South London Press
have stated that they will be able to progress the COMMUNITY TOILET SCHEME.
Don't hold your breath. We shall see.
The South London Press tellingly cited Pamela Holmes of Age Concern thus: "Toilet humour might be funny - but not being able to go out due to lack of public toilets is a daily reality for more than half of older people".
BOG ORDER TOILETLESS CENTRAL STOCKWELL - MORE GROT AND CRAP.
By the bus stops and close to BETTER BOOKIES
alley which has been the most often used unoffical dunking space for folk who get "caught short"
for many years now - given useless Lambeth Council's
inability to provide central Stockwell
with public toilets - the above foto shows the bog order condition in which contractors left the pavements after working thro' the night into Thursday morning (18th).
It is thick tacky grease and adds to the urine and other mess stains that almost permanantly pollute central Stockwell's paved area. Central Stockwell
is notorious for its filthy pavings - as has been instanced previously on this blog. Lambeth Council's
so called "Street Care Team"
ought to wake up as should Stockwell's three duff Stockwell Ward Councillors
- some fat chance of that. Roll up roll up Stockwell Festival is about to happen - excuse me while I yawn.
