police find dead man after G20 protests

Brisbane News – London police find dead man after G20 protests.

I couldn’t believe this at first when I saw a comment posted on a friends facebook… Strangely its not in th UK News as of yet.

He added later “I was in the vicinity. I had to get away from the main area as it was getting very heated indeed. I could just about see what was going on. Some people were covered in blood…. Felt like a horror movie. Some of the protesters were throwing things at the police therefore delaying medical attention to the dying man – Police version: natural causes!! I am shocked”


Always a beautiful station, Southgate has surpassed itself since its recent renovation and restoration. If any tube stop deserved a visit on it’s own credentials its this one.

A Beautiful example of Art-Deco Design, the surrounding shopping arcade and one-way flatter the lovely Island station in the middle!

Open Letter to Karen Buck MP

Dear Karen Buck,

As you will know Dub Vendor record shack Ladbroke Grove is closing this Wednesday 25th June after over 28 years of business. Dub Vendor was key in bringing Jamaican and Carribean music to London and has played a central role in the Ladbroke Grove community.

Whilst we must accept the closing of the store I am extremely concerned that we may lose the mural on the side of the store, one of the finest in London. I would urge you to take the steps necessary to protect this local, national and international icon.

Yours sincerely,

Dub Vendor is world famous as is the mural that has featured in many films and music videos, as well as being a local landmark. There is a facebook group if you wish to support this campaign – however the best course of action is to email Ms Buck directly at
