#MYLDN (1040)

January 12th, 2018

Me and my camera in my home town, my capital city, my london

The W.11 postcode is proud to present…Attack of the Poshos! The Chelseafication of this area finally appears to be complete. Blame Julia Roberts, blame Hugh Grant, blame Paddington Bear, blame whoever you want, it won’t change what has happened and it ain’t ever going back to the way it was. As so many areas have changed in London over the decades, possibly none more so than Notting Hill. Back in the 60s, it was literally slums, and now, it is ironically inhabited by the Chelsea set who are slumming it in W.11 because they can’t afford to live in SW3. Those poor people, actually, sorry, those rich people, okay, rich poor people…

So this area was an area no-one wanted to live in and now it is an area no-one can afford to live in. Progress? Hmm, not so sure.

P.s wishing you all a happy new year and the best of luck for 2018. Lets be honest, it can’t be worse than 2017, can it? Can it? (scared high pitched voice).
