Maida Vale pub rebuilt after demolition serves first indoor drinks

A pub that was rebuilt "brick by brick" after being demolished, shortly before it was to be given listed status, has welcomed its first customers inside.

The Carlton Tavern in Maida Vale, originally opened in the 1920s, was demolished by developers CTLX in 2015.

Later that year, they were ordered to rebuild it exactly as before by Westminster City Council but refused and appealed against the decision.

An inquiry by the Planning Inspectorate in 2016 found in favour of the council.

Five years later, the pub is open again for business and has welcomed some longstanding customers.

Landlord Tom Rees, said: "We had a really lovely visit from Jimmy, who's one of our regulars, he's 94, and his friend John, absolutely loving sitting in the warm.

"He's really happy that we've brought the pub back and he just loves being back here."

The new version of the Carlton, which CTLX had hoped to replace with flats and a smaller pub, has a stronger emphasis on serving food, but still welcomes those just looking for a drink.

"It's been a huge effort," Mr Rees said.

"It was a real shame when it got knocked down, but what we're doing is completely different to what the pub was.

"Hopefully we're still serving the same needs of the community and more of the community than before."

That's the trouble with all the access to cameras, computers, photoshopping, or whatever else people learn to change.

The lies against Jeremy Corbyn continue, even when those same lies were re-published by the Tory press.

"Northumbria University is "urgently" investigating after an online uproar over a tweet posted from a university lecturer's Twitter account.

The tweet features an image of Jeremy Corbyn, altered to show him reading from a notorious anti-Semitic forgery."

Michael Rosen condemns Northumbria Uni lecturer's manipulated image...

You're right, Stephen, nobody needs more than his or her own name..

Chris ("The N and the P are clear, but I don't know who are called the Y.")

I'm quite happy that I'm not 100% sure I know what the P and the Y mean I'm just sad I know what the N is for.

The bells v the boutique hotel: the battle to save Britain’s oldest factory

Whitechapel Bell Foundry dates back to 1570, and was the factory in which Big Ben and the Liberty Bell were made. But it shut in 2017 and a fight for its future has been raging ever since

On a November evening in 2019, Nigel Taylor, who had until recently been the longest-standing employee at the oldest factory in England, took a seat inside a council chamber in the shadow of Canary Wharf in London. The room looked more like the setting of a US daytime TV court drama than a provincial government building in the East End, and it was packed with campaigners, councillors and property developers. Two fretful years had passed since the closure of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, where Taylor had worked for 40 years. Raycliff Capital, a US venture capital firm, had recently acquired the foundry buildings, and a hearing was scheduled to rule whether they could be converted into a boutique hotel.

For many in attendance, these development plans were close to sacrilege. The Whitechapel Bell Foundry had been casting bronze bells – what some bellringers call “heavy metal” – since 1570. Big Ben was made there in 1858. The Liberty Bell was made there in 1752. Over the centuries, bells from Whitechapel had made their way all over the world. Some 500 Whitechapel tower bells can be found in Australia, 600 in the US and at least 900 in Canada, according to its former owner Alan Hughes.

So many unnecessary terms.

One thing to start with is do away with all labels. If you look carefully there's almost never need to divide people in groups and label them. Stop thinking in groups and don't mention the groups you could belong to. Don't be proud of your nationality or other things you can't help. Don't use group symbols or titles.

As for "real beggars," I guess I would define them as people who need money for food, housing, health care, and exclude those who want money for alcohol and/or drugs. 

Are there any Swedish people among us? How do they handle the alcohol and drug abuse problems in Sweden? 

When I was in Sweden, Oh! Gosh, it must have been 40 years ago, they had an impressive program for alcoholic and drug-addicted people. I wonder how it turned out?
