"But amazingly, while responsible motorists face ever tighter regulations, there is nothing unlawful about these unsightly, anti-social vans."

Anti-social? really? have people in the "Dulwich neighbourhood" that happens to cover Croxted Road turned into snobs? Oh get over yourselves!

Dear KoolBananas

If you had read the article properly, you would have noticed that it was the journalist who wrote the words

"But amazingly, while responsible motorists face ever tighter regulations, there is nothing unlawful about these unsightly, anti-social vans."

It was not a Dulwich resident, the journalist could be living in any one of London's Boroughs.

If this thread had been on the East Dulwich Forum it would have been on page 4 by now with contributions querying the use of the English language written on the vans, the exact shade of red of the vans and whether they had moved 6 inches in the last 24 hours.
Get over yourself!

Have often considered painting the '3' into an '8' on the telephone number displayed on the vans.

If nobody calls him and his business dries up, maybe he'll sod-off elsewhere!

Either that, or chuck a large tarpaulin over the thing!

I shall personally stop buying the Evening Standard now that a Russian fellow is going to own it...

Maybe that will stop those damn vans from parking here
