I'm waiting for some 'insane in the membrane' suggestions for what it should be spent on...

Can we give our funky old lamposts a lick of paint?

My vote goes for a in street French style urinal. Due to the low frequency of trains and seclusion Crofton Park station is soaked through and I wouldn't be surprised if the footbridge doesn't collapse soon. There are a number of street drinkers in the area who are among the many culprits who also seem to think the wall at the end of my road is a urinal too.

I think that the strip of land between London bound trains at Crofton Park Station and Marnock Road could do with a tidy up. The area is a magnet for rubbish and looks dreadful. Maybe a few spring bulbs too?

Just see what they have done in Hither Green.

I vote for the urinal. I've remonstrated with people before about p*ssing in the station and, of course, been shouted at. Why is it so difficult for people to care for their local environment?

Maybe we could kick Acorn out and turn that back into a public toilet!

The strip of land by CP Station looks much worse since the ugly black inner fence was installed, and also makes what used to be a lovely spacious and green platform feel very hemmed in. Perhaps we could give the money to the station manager to take it away again?

Actually a community garden / flower bed on that bit of land is a fine idea. I can't imagine Network Rail have any plans for it- too narrow to build on, and there's already step-free access further down the platform. It could be a great opportunity to brighten up the area and rival Brockley Station in the floral department.

Blog title quote correction Don't you know I'm LOCO or in the common parlance: insane in the brain.

It's a little pun. Cos it's about local ward assemblies. And because headlines about local ward assemblies get very boring very quickly after the first dozen or so.

Nick - the heading may be a pun on something but what does "ese" mean?
I can't understand the title at all. What does the European School of Economics have to do with Brockley?

"Ese" is slang for "mate" in Latin American English. Nick is quoting the start of a Cypress Hill song called "Insane in the Membrane", but that says "loco" (crazy) instead of "local" (hence the pun).

Some of the other comments are puns on lyrics from the same song. B-Real's made me laugh!

Thanks. So the original line translates as "Who are you trying to get crazy with, my friend? Do you not know that I am crazy?". It is a bit difficult to understand the context in which one would ask this.

I presume it means in effect: "Please tell me, my friend, with whom you are seeking to go mad, as you may not know that I am mad? One assumes the speaker is making an offer for his interlocutor to go mad with him rather than with somebody else as yet unidentified?

I think he's saying "Who are you trying to mess with (mate)? Don't you know I'm a bit mental?" I.e. I'm a bit unhinged so you wouldn't want to cross me.

This would make sense given the context of the other lyrics, alot of which seem to be "dissing" whoever the song is aimed at.

But maybe if the song is actually about being literally mad, you know, sort of King George stylee, it's not suppossed to make sense - as evidence of the author's insanity.

Gosh - it works on so many levels!

And I think I might have mislead you - I think the song is actually called "Insane in the Brain" not "Insane in the Membrane".
