See.....the problem with people like you is that your perspective is all muddled up. You are determined to see something that isn't there so you flip it on its head to see if that view will fit your paranoid agenda better.

As you well know, I didn't say or imply at all that there were too many white people in that render of Tottenham. I said that there were too few black and Asian people; that the almost complete absence of ethnic minorities portrayed within it was offensively unrepresentative of the area. Perhaps the difference is too subtle for you to comprehend but it is a huge difference nonetheless. Anyone who has been to Tottenham knows very well that the local population is at least 50% black and Asian.

So to play the race card so wilfully and gratuitously, as you have, is part dimwittery, part cowardice. I suggest that you desist.


*Apologies to all for regurgitating this discussion from a week or two back but JamieUK has only just sent me an offensive PM about it. I would have responded privately but he appears to have disabled the facility for others (or maybe just me?) to reply to his PMs. And it was only because of that that I discovered that he had re-edited his post to repeat his moronic accusation.

I would be grateful if a mod could warn him about his future conduct.

JimB may be a Spurs fan... which in my book makes him the worst kind of human imaginable.... but racist he certainly isn't.

This is not even close to being true. They'd be nearer 5% than 50%.

Excellent suggestions already by Mr Cladding and others.

The top of Tate Modern (Boiler House) is also worth a visit.

There's also
  • That bridge in Archway which is popular with jumpers
  • Crystal Place has plenty of views
  • Wormwood Scrubs
  • The cross platform bridge at Clapham Junction

The country’s biggest Build to Rent development is being given a £65m boost by the government.

The loan deal will help provide 7,600 homes at Wembley Park in north London.

Housing Minister Alok Sharma said planning rules will also be relaxed to encourage more Build to Rent schemes.

Wembley developer Quintain is matching the £65m government cash to invest in improved infrastructure across the site.

Quintain Chief Executive, Angus Dodd said: “This £65 million government loan will be match funded by Quintain to provide a £130 million infrastructure investment into Wembley Park to deliver new car and coach parking, an energy centre and the first phase of the new 7 acre public park.

Great answers by everyone, not much more to add.

If you're after more recent urban development, certainly visit:
  • King's Cross
  • Canary Wharf
  • Stratford Olympic Park area

Places like Nine Elms, Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks are a work-in-progress, and would be better to explore in another 5 years. However, I would recommend taking the DLR to Royal Victoria, and then catching a cable car from the Royal Docks to Greenwich Peninsula.

Find another forum to post on. You can, if you want, believe Jim is being too sensitive about that render (though I'd say his reasoning was sound) but to call him racist is disgusting and shows you up as a total moron. You have been reported. This forum doesn't need your ilk posting here.

No, it's not just you, I can't send PMs to him either. Seems this troll is a coward happy to dish it out but doesn't want anyone responding.
