Brox will eat itself

This has already been doing the rounds on Twitter (follow BC here) but deserves to be shared more widely.

A pop-up too far? Victims of the pub-shortage (albeit directly outside the Wickham Arms)? Hipsters? Never escaped the 80s. This picture, like a fuzzy shot of a stick in Loch Ness, poses more questions than it answers.

More hipster related BS that will get clicks but not a sausage on the Network Rail workmen puting the advertising hoardings back up around BX today. Their removal was one of the best Brockley developments in the 6 years I've been here in my opinion. also any news on the MOT development?

She asked for drinks on a tropical island, he can't understand how his phone led them to a Brockley Island.

The BDS reunion in full swing?

Why bring hipsters into it? It's just a bit of good old fashioned eccentricity isn't it?

max doom! said...

is he tied to that chair or is that his attire?

This isn't hipsters, I was there, I've seen that guy at the Wickham a few times - he's got a randy black and white staffie that's always running around. Apparently he was banned for 4 weeks and in protest set up his own "bar" out in the street... I think he lives on UBR - saw him arrive carrying the table and chairs...

If these type of muppets are moving in I'm moving out. I dont care if the bakerloo line is coming in 30 years and we are in the midst of a 'great inversion'. Dorking here I come!

Hey, what happened to my comment? Did I get moderated or lost in the discus system? As I was saying, this guy definitely isn't a hipster, I was there and saw him set up. He's always in the Wickham with his black and white staffie. The bar staff said that he'd been banned for a few weeks and set up his own 'bar' in protest...

Well that escalated quickly.

Brockley's march toward saturation of twee nonsense continues unabated.

Monkeyboy said...

but its not twee. its an angry and slightly deranged local protesting that he cant get a drink in his unreconstructed boozer.

sadly not a hipster said...

What hipsters can't have staffies? Maybe it's a reverse cool thing.

choosenick said...

Surely a goldsmiths art project of some sorts?

Headhunter said...

Definitely not. If you met this guy you'd realise he's about as far as it gets from a hipsterish, Goldsmith's art student type as you can imagine, he's about as sahf east London as they come....

Too many people trying to define what Brockley types are/should be like, lived here 22+ years and the joy is that there us not a Brockley type, that is what makes it Brockley!

i asked the bloke on the traffic island and he said your motor failed due to worn brakes, emissions and a cracked windscreen
