London does not have a housing problem it has a rich people problem. The decimation of Soho and Camden is just one side of it. The other is the tragic evictions taking place everywhere from Barnet to Brixton and the record numbers of people sleeping on London’s streets.
Nobody wants this vandalism except for the grasping property developers, greedy landlords and global super rich who are turning every last brick in the city into an investment opportunity. They could not give a fuck about the people who live here – the people who built London and do the real work that makes it function. This is not a natural development of the city due to changing fashions and demographics. It is certainly not regeneration. It is a robbery. A city being reconstructed as Disneyland, where no real people can afford to live. It will be the death of London in the end. And the rich won’t care, they will be busy destroying somewhere else by then.
But there are fucking loads more of us than them. Struggles over housing and community venues are bursting into life everywhere. London has a long tradition of subversion, disobedience, rebellion and riots. The London mob must rise again. All of us, together, against the fucking rich.
