It’s become increasingly popular for building sites to surround themselves with boards featuring photographs of the local area in the past or of residents spouting soundbites about their neighbourhood and how wonderful it is. Sometimes though that can backfire as evidenced by the above photograph. Dirty, dirty lady.

This is either an example of poor planning or this warning is written in Latin.
I can’t decide, I hope it’s latin.

Woo hoo! It’s Christmas! The time when workers all over the city try to briefly alleviate the day to day drudgery of their desk jobs with some well placed, shiny but dangerously flammable decorations. Sounds like good, innocent fun right? Something that inspire a little festive cheer?
Take a look at this shit show.
Can your office top these? If so send me a photo at [email protected] or @shitlondon on Twitter.
The sorriest excuse for a xmas tree I think I’ve ever seen. Hanging baubles on it only draws attention to its diminutive stature.

Now it is a building named after a suspected serial abuser of young girls but then ( a couple of weeks ago ) it was named in the honour of a tireless fund raiser for many charities across the U.K. What do they do now? Take down the sign? This is an old people’s home so it’s pretty certain to say that none of the people currently imprisoned…sorry…residing here ever much featured on his cigar and jewellery powered sex radar but all the same, how do the inmates feel about having his name emblazoned across their home? I know that one town has melted down a statue a Savile, encased the left over ore in concrete and then had that sunk into a 2km deep marine trench such is the fear that somehow he will return from the dead and stalk the land looking to molest children like some gold lame’ tracksuit sporting, medal awarding Freddy Krueger. Maybe this place should do the same…just to be safe.
Shit Londoner Liz Prinn sent in this fine example of Knobism from the streets of South East London saying…
“I spotted this excellent “so blurry it’s almost moving” piece of knobism in Crystal Palace this evening and thought you would appreciate it. It wasn’t there yesterday so this is breaking news!”
….of course that was a couple of weeks ago so now it’s old news now I suppose.
Shit London – bringing you all the latest Knobism news…eventually.
