Shoreditch so possibly done deliberately to add hipster points, or have the hipsters all moved to Dalston now?

Nah other way round they all moved to hackney from dalston, once dalston ran out of space (or actually it might be islington im thinking about, probably both LOL)

as much as I like to poke fun at them etc, it is thanks to them Hackney is a bit less dodgy then it once was

it was once not uncommon for me to come across a burnt out car on my walk to school, or someone dumping a smashed up a stolen car in the dead end,

but its been about 15 years since I last saw something like that thankfully

although it may just be that people are too busy stabbing each other these days to be bothered with car crime...

Aah, I see. I knew Hackney was already converted, I didn't think Dalston had been. It certainly doesn't look it when you catch a bus down the A10 part of it. Which isn't to knock the place, it just looks a bit more down to earth. Lorraine was once very happy to come away with some very colourful fabric ridiculously cheap from Dalston market a few years back.

I've been driving past this for a couple of weeks now. I thought I'd found new levels of base, I don't ever remember seeing a Matiz with plastic bumpers. I finally got up close to it today and they have actually rattle canned them black.

I really don't know what's going on with the headlights though, even looking at them close up.

It's got cataracts, poor old thing.

Looks like the MOT tester didn't like the look in 2019:

I don't know how people drive like that, I have to polish mine every few months, the difference in light intensity and pattern is noticeable. That must be like trying to see your way by candlelight
