    @nick

    I'm with you on that one - nothing worse than a ticking clock when you're trying to get some kip. Drives me up the fucking wall.

    Really should have been the artwork cover for the Killing in the Name re-release a few years ago.

    My mum once sellotaped the batteries into the clock to stop me doing it, so i snapped off the second hand.

    Did that actually solve the problem? Surely the 'ticking mechanism' (yes, that's the correct technical term) inside the clock was unaffected?

    The main noise in big wall clocks is the movement of the hand. It dulled it enough for me to be able to put it in a drawer.

    But, like the telltale heart, I knew it was there. Waiting. Ticking.

    I lived on clapham high street for a year, and the noise from police cars going up and down the road all night was unbearable. In the summer with the windows open i used to wake up two or three times a night

    Never got used to it.

    Sellotape, that impenetrable material.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    If you don't mind atrophying in suburbia, Plumstead is 15 minutes into London Bridge, leafy and shit and they GIVE houses away over there.

    Same with West Wickham. One bed in Streatham plus half a mile gives you a five bed detached Addam's family mansion.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Snapping the hand off was funnier in the oneupmanship, smartarse.

    I like the ticking of a clock's escapement, I've got a mantel clock downstairs which is loud enough to drown out my wristwatch's on the bedside table. The half hour repeater can fuck off though since I unwittingly wound the spring.

    If you live in inner NE London you read the Guardian, lament David Milliband's exile and decry the world's political and economic woes over fair trade organic meze-tapas dinner parties with Cynthia and Rog.

    If you live in outer NE London you drive a van or a taxi and spend the weekends shouting at your kids and reading the Sun.

    If you live in inner SW London you live in a house bought by your family and change into red trousers in the evening. Also you have no idea what a real pub is like, as round you the 'Gastro' is silent.

    If you live in outer SW London you moved there because you wanted your children to go to the right sort of schools. You take them down to the river to watch the boating and they cannot wait to leave home.

    If you live in inner NW London you're trading on decades-old Camden cachet, which in totality amounts to a torn T-shirt, an 'edgy' tattoo and a carefully cultivated heroin-chic thinness which means you're constantly starving.

    if you live in outer NW London you don't really consider yourself from London.

    If you live in inner SE London you're fucking brilliant. Also on balance you probably send money abroad every month.

    If you live in outer SE London you think you're the same as the people in outer SW London, and that nobody noticed you got your scatter cushions from Primark instead of John Lewis. Everyone noticed. Everyone knows.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    West London is for proper people. And you really don't want to be south of the river.

    I've got a house in the country if that helps alleviate any inherent cuntishness?

    You're probably vetoing new train lines.

    Now, while normally I'd think you a massive bellend for it, if it means we are hooked up to Birmingham then I probably support it. Otherwise, anything to piss off the conservative DM readers.

    @mcmonkeyplc
    I used to live in a council estate right next to the end of the boat race. It was going there to see that that informed my first impressions of politicians as generally being entitled fucks who thought they were 16th century Land Lords - ordering the guards to clear the peasant children away from their immediate vicinity while wrinkling their noses in disgust.

    Except for Lord Sutch, who was always lovely.

    He annoyed the other politicians by being approachable and likeable and he always wore rosettes for both teams =)

    Do you know if you joined the Monster Raving Looney Party you got a cheque for 4m? Which he promised to honour if they were ever elected to power.

    I've never really experienced politicians being pricks in this country but when I visited India in 2005 I was sitting on a bench looking out on the coast around sunset, quite a nice view, when an MP's entourage comes over and asks politely "can you please move so that the MP can sit here with his wife?".

    I did as I was asked but that is one cuntish thing to ask. I was there first!

    They probably some how knew I wasn't an Indian voter...at least I hope that's what it was.

    The only place that interests me outside of west London is Balham. It matters not though I won't be getting a mortgage anytime soon. Though I might be able to buy an apartment outright in 8 years.

    That whole area is decent - Clapham. Balham, Streatham (Hill). I loved it round there.
