Bermondsey has a bad reputation. The Blue has a charity shop, a furniture store library as well as an Iceland and Co-op even a post office a funeral parlour and criminal solicitors and a pawn brokers.
My area is a muggers paradise but for the people having no money.
Bermondsey has poor transport links. If you want a bus you will have to go to a place called Elephant and Castle which in the past was a bustling hub but since for the past fifty years has been a place where women and rapped and pensioners robbed all the time.
A lad told me they do no buy stuff around here they rob stuff.
Most of the residents of Bermondsey are poor.
I have never seen a beggar in Bermondsey not even in Surrey Quays the local Mall as most are richer than the locals so prefer the West End.
I have not seen any rough sleepers in the door way. I have not seen any binge drinkers.
