I’ve used the emoji keyboard about 4 times. As you might imagine, the ‘recently used’ panel is incredibly revealing.
Birmingham had been the council to watch on chuggers: they were hoping to introduce a by-law that would enable them to ban chugging in the city centre.
I’ve said before how grateful I am to Thirsty Camel on Lavender Hill for so tirelessly helping me with content for this blog.
It is impossible to deny that Lavender Hill is struggling, especially the eastern end as the road approaches Lambeth.
I’ve just found out that Thirsty Camel’s application for a new licence was rejected at last night’s licensing panel hearing.
The current licensee had lost his licence after being found selling counterfeit and smuggled cigarettes but a new licence application was made by an associate, presumably so they could continue trading in exactly the same way as before.
Despite my libertarian instincts, this is a good result: in trading illegal cigarettes (and previously selling to underage drinkers) the shop was competing unfairly with other retailers and putting customers at risk with products that were potentially harmful.
