Mark Crouch End replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Aldi deal starts Wood Green extension
"Do Aldi know that it is the avowed intention of Haringey to work for the demolition of the entire Mall site? (Yeah well, whadda I care, I imagine they'll survive). Maybe the question for N8'ers is whether the cheap smoked sausage is worth…"

Mark Crouch End replied to Adrian Essex's discussion New hotel to open in Crouch End - and some other stuff
"It's a hotel alright. But whether there's an arts centre alongside I'm not so sure. The big question is still sustainability. Arts centres and the ilk usually rely on public funding - and this would appear to be private operation.…"

"Is it the same chap that promised faithfully that they'd open in 4 weeks back in November? Also, what were the issues with the council? And what do the Far East Consortium make of a canopy on their land? I doubt a terrace of pavement tables and…"

"I have scoured the OpinioN8 site for April fools jokes, and as the news from Haringey is clearly true, I have decided the story above must be the prank. I claim my prize."

Mark Crouch End replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Stroud Green might move to Tottenham
"I'd second Adrian's remarks: a local sense of identity is the root of civic engagement (even if it's only through the more tangential connection of the local Parliamentary Constituency). For example, how did the initial consideration…"

Mark Crouch End replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Stroud Green might move to Tottenham
"Thanks Adrian, so a corrected map of the Conservative proposals below. With the important move of Crouch End to the well off end of things. I take back all the stuff about riff raff obviously. Now a 'Finchley & Muswell Hill' and a…"

Mark Crouch End replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Stroud Green might move to Tottenham
"I'm guessing a bit, but this appears to be the Conservative counter proposal, with N8 mostly going East, and Muswell Hill and Highgate divided away. Presumably to keep the riff raff out and give the tories a chance at winning a seat."

Mark Crouch End replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Stroud Green might move to Tottenham
"Perhaps we should be more worried about the Labour Party (pro-Corbyn wing) rather than David Lammy's comments. This appears to be their proposed constituency -"

Take courage at the Hornsey Tavern?

A planning app has been submitted for changes at Hornsey High Street's Hornsey Tavern, with the yard becoming a block of 7 flats...But it's hard not to see it as a clear improvement.
