And another beauty... tonight, about 7pm, at Peckham Rye, was walking through the empty, wide pathed garden near cafe- could literally hear the panting coming up behind- turned round to see large framed woman jogger, 40's, grey top, red headphones, bearing down on me, showing no sign of moving across. I indicated "space" with my arm, and was treated to " Is there sumfink wrong with you, freak?" as she passed within 2 or 3 feet of me. What to do? I'm perfectly resigned to constantly changing my own course, and picking my way through the dog turds and potholes in the grassy areas, but if there's no escape, are we supposed to just put up with it for fear of abuse from some selfish morons? With her grasp of the current situation, perhaps she should have joined in the football match which was taking place at the top end of the Rye...
