  • Litro #147: Space - Brixton
    as Milton Keynes and Folkestone if they accept the offer it ll prise them away from the support network of family and friends that young people desperately need to build a secure family life In this pursuit of greed even schools have been bulldozed to make way for gated communities Austerity is a word that landlords cannot even spell as they hike up rents whenever they contemplate building a villa in Barbados To sum up the working class are being cleansed from central London before our very eyes I for one refuse to blame the affluent new arrivals in Brixton they see this corner of south west London as an attractive place to live close to central London with good public transport networks and a thriving Brixton Village where they can relax in a high quality restaurant following a hard day s shopping and browsing in the market In my opinion the culpability should bruise the feet of politicians of all shades Since Margaret Thatcher gave the right to council house dwellers to buy their own property our dear leaders have utterly failed to build or provide more council housing stock Even in the boom days of Tony Blair s three election wins no one seemed to say wait a minute where are the young working class in our inner cities going to live To arrest this housing injustice I would immediately introduce a rent cap this is nothing new it actually works in many big cities in Europe and force the property developers who have those big juicy construction contracts granted to them by local councils to build a much bigger percentage of new homes that are affordable for the working class Once you take gluttony out of the housing crisis equation it s not rocket science to try and seek a solution I m always asked if I think they ll be another uprising in Brixton similar to what occurred in 1981 People might well take to the streets over the housing crisis but I don t think the agitators rebels and anarchists will have a Brixton address About Alex Wheatle Alex Wheatle was born in 1963 to Jamaican parents living in Brixton but spent most of his childhood in a Surrey children s home He returned to Brixton in 1977 where he founded the Crucial Rocker sound system and performed his own songs and lyrics under the name of Yardman Irie He spent a short stint in prison following the Brixton uprising of 1981 Following his release from prison he continued to write poems and lyrics and became known as the Brixtonbard Mail More Posts 1 Comments comments Prev Why the Horror Genre Needs to Take Itself Seriously Next Litro 147 Space Notting Hill Pingback Litro 147 The Space issue Letter from the Editor LitroUSA Related Posts Eminem at Slane Castle A Song For Da Ladies Feature Film The Grand Budapest Hotel A Modern Crisis Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before

  • Virginia Woolf and a Room of One’s Own | Essay
    later when I was writing up my doctoral thesis I inserted a brief footnote describing the experience at Monk s House but failing to explain it as I did not know what had caused it or what if anything it meant The examiners perhaps thought that this a little too personal for a piece of academic work but if so they were tactful and made no mention of it They awarded me the doctorate and sent me on my way I went out into the world to earn my living and inspired by Woolf to write novels of my own I went first to London to a jaundiced flat in the north of the city I moved to a commune in the east of the city I worked as a secretary and then as an editor for the Guardian newspaper I moved to South London to a burn by night house perfectly placed for a few demolished pubs I moved to New York to Alphabet City and worked for the New York Review of Books The roof of my apartment fell down so I moved to a charming dive opposite the Brooklyn Museum where the sound of acrimony gurgled through the walls I took a job at the philosophy department of Oslo University and moved to a minimalist room in that beautiful city I took another academic post in Munich I went to Paris to Tallinn to Berlin where I lived in the former East in an apartment above a train line The room shuddered as I typed out a novel in the evenings In Sydney I lived by the Pacific Coast the sun bleached rocks like bones I moved to South Africa to China to Italy Most recently I lived in a crumbling colonial building in Hikkaduwa Sri Lanka and watched my children playing in the garden as I typed I wonder now if my uncharacteristic weeping at Monk s House was essentially about rooms I had recently lost my last grandparent at that time my beloved grandmother and had nearly lost my wonderful father who has since passed away I mourn the dead and miss them always As we go through life we inhabit a series of rooms and so do those we love There are the rooms we are born in the rooms we know as children the friendly institutional rooms of school where we play our part one among an infinite series the rising generation Beyond the rooms of adult life rooms that have played their part in the slowing down of the heart as the British poet Charlotte Mew wrote a rough contemporary of Woolf s We move through linear time and yet these rooms remain where we slept and ate and drank and loved talked through one evening and another We can return to these rooms physically or in our thoughts but we can never regain the past We all seek a room of our own and yet we fail our habitation is never
