Times2

Roger: Actually it's, it's quite, y'know, typical behaviour when you have this kind of dysfunctional group dynamic. Y'know, this kind of co-dependant, emotionally stunted, sitting in your stupid coffee house with your stupid big cups which, I'm sorry, might as well have nipples on them, and you're like all 'Oh, define me! Define me! Love me, I need love!'.

Those cats at The Times can't get enough of the Brockley good stuff.

Property columnist Anne Ashworth has followed this piece with a plug in her own column:

Brockley in south east London may be rarely, if ever, in the headlines. Even Londoners remark: “Where’s that then?” But there is a growing buzz about the space that you can acquire here, for less. Seven-bedroom homes can be had for under £750,000. A bargain for London, especially since Brockley will soon become an easy commute to Canary Wharf. Unlike Oxshott, this is a neighbourhood in which people have tended to live before they become famous. Could this status be about to change?

So is Brockley the new Hampstead or the new Oxshott? You decide.

I'll just nip out and buy one of those £750,000 houses me thinks.

I think you'd probably need a bit more than £750k for a 7-bed property.

Brockley should content itself with being Brockley - which Hampstead (thankfully) 'aint'.

Oh my God that is, like, so brilliant! Hey everybody! Did you see what he did there? Did you see!? He took, oh wow, the word 'Hamstead' and the word 'mung' and he combined them.

You're going to be dining out for years on that one anon
