It's a shame Sainsbury's couldn't fit a WiFi CCTV camera up that we could log into. Perhaps at the entrance looking out towards the nursery. Possible to judge then what the queue 'looked' like and whe

What the council should not be doing, James, is pursuing its CPZ agenda helter-skelter using Covid-19 as a screen. That's frankly, disgusting. The Melbourne Grove proposals are a clear stalking horse

James Barber has already made the point that traders didn't want/ wouldn't have paid for space in, a 7 day market. Southwark did 'build a market' and nobody came (except on Saturdays). A market requir
