The King Blues' letter to Gordon Brown on a billboard, Old Street, London

full text of the letter:

"Dear Gordon Brown,

Your party led us into war after war that we didn't want to fight and you added insult to injury by stripping away our civil liberties, the very things that made Britain Great.

Bringing in ID cards, surrounding us with CCTV and taking away our right to protest doesn't prevent crime, it just increases your Orwellian grip on us.

Money goes on bailing out banks and buying tanks while the police move on the homeless by waking them up and pouring water where they sleep.

Your crackdown on unemployment benefits during an economic crisis shows your finger is pointed firmly in the wrong direction. You are demonising the people you have forced to live in poverty.

We demand that you put ALL people before profits because ALL people are priceless.

No more will we fear each other, for we are all equal. We will not let creed, sexuality, or colour come between us. Our only enemies are those who try to divide us. We were born free and we want to live free. The people run this country, not unelected leaders and when we stand together as one we're strong because power comes from the bottom up, not the top down. Watch your back all oppressors, we are organising.


The King Blues"

Christmas shopping, London

Liberty - good for wood panelling and overpriced presents. I once saw a pair of Missoni socks here for £36, and they were in the sale:

Replacing the Christmas lights on Regent Street this year, we have the Christmas nets, this time illuminated:

Just in case you thought there was an outbreak of taste in this year's Christmas decorations, what's this above Carnaby Street?

Yes, it's a giant inflatable snowman, soon to be covered in London grime:

I was getting a little bored of this blog until I visited Bromley-by-Bow for the first time. What a place!

Three Mills Studios:

Bow Creek:

Industry and flats, Sugar House Lane:

Jhankar Club. Looks pretty inviting, eh? I can't find any trace of this place on the internet.
