North South divide

We have booked to go to London in June to meet FDIL’s family. Looking forward to some interesting sights and tastes in our glorious capital.  YS has already reserved a table at Dalston’s White Rabbit. Dalston is the new Hackney I understand.

I expect you could find some similar people in our own Northern Quarter but perhaps not in Harpurhey. What you might find in Harpurhey is something similar to this reaction to the influx of the trendy ones sprayed on a hoarding outside Dalston Station.


Note to Nephew: nervous about becoming thirty? It’s OK,  now you don’t have to even try!
