SAVE BRIXTON's MARKET - "TODAY'S EXTREMELY DAMP SQUIB COUNCIL DEMONSTRATION".
Very few COUNCIL "faces" turned up, altho' Council "Leader" (so-called) Steve "Grime Ball" Reed did - they hung around briefly at the Coldhourbour Lane exits to the threatened shopping arcades - as per foto's above. They made no public address of any kind whatever, produced no informative ephemera of any kind whatsoever, posed for a few foto's together with a number of market traders/ stall holders - including the heavily pregnant and very lovely Electric Avenue "fruit and veg" stall-holder woman. And then Reed disappeared as one or two of the others (foto immediately above) ambled thro' the arcades stopping occasionally to have more foto's taken. A very damp squib "demonstration" indeed - barely anyone could have known what, if anything, was going on. Will this level of commitment save the market? Well don't turn to Lambeth Council's own fortnightly propaganda rag "LAMBETH Life" to find out - as per local public toilet provision "LAMBETH Life" has remained silent - as one or two folk today actually noted in conversation with STOCKWELL TOILET WATCH.
