Brockley Central on Londonist

"Now you will see me one more time, if you do good. You will see me, two more times, if you do bad. Good night."
- The Cowboy, Mulholland Drive

According to the Edelman Trust Barometer, you need to read something five times from five separate sources before you really believe it. So we've followed the Guardian review with an interview with the the nice people at the Londonist in a bid to bludgeon the charms of SE4 in to the consciousness of every Londoner.

Excellent article, fair and well written.

I also recommend the art vernissage day as a superb display of talent in what appears to be a small village (till you see it's in zone2!).

really good article - didn't realise that you started the blog in a bid to avoid weeding in wickham road though:)

I read the Blackheath one too. I like the feature.

Beautiful and eccentric - how true. Like many of us who live here (ahem).

Great article, well done.

Nice one, Nick. You struck just the right tone, if I may say so.

I'd hoped for an express mention but the reference to Brockley Central sceptics in relation to the Talbot will suffice.

Brockley Nick said...

Hugh, I'm glad you approve. You and I know who I was talking about.

Great stuff, Nick. I think you do a fantastic job with this blog. Keeping the tone right is a lot harder than it looks, I would say, judging from my experience over many years participating in another messageboard. Angry people are omnipresent on the internet, aren't they!

Brockley Nick said...

Thanks Tresilliana, QBF and anonymeece. Nobbly, I thought the Whopper anecdote would prevent accusations of vanity, even if it didn't placate the anti-mung lobby.

nobbly brick said...

Yes, well. Oddly you referred to yourself in the First person singular rather than the more usual First person plural

must have been the full moon...

"Angry people are omnipresent on the internet, aren't they!"

The internet certainly brings out everyone's inner anger, that's for sure. My experience on another talkboard bears that out. Is it because it's so much easier to post a harsh opinion? Or because we react more strongly to stuff in print than we would in person, as it's there on the screen devoid of all the metalinguistic features that keep people civil in person?

Someone surely must have done a PhD thesis on this!

Great read - looking forward to the next three to complete the circle and make it true.

I read the article on londonist and thought I'd take a look at your site. It made me wonder if there's one in my area - I will have to have a look.
