    What's the name of that film? I've seen Finisterre (which is a pretty poor rip-off of PK) but this is a different film isn't it?

    I went to Bluewater the other day (dont ask) and going well past Greenwich, there's this kind of...shanty town...with loads of tents. You can barely see it from the road. I guess it's for volunteers, or army people, or something. It was like...tents. I mean, what's that about?

    This should maybe be in the Olympics thread.

    This place is the future and not in a good way. Evrry time I go back to see my mum im shocked, its always got a bit more extreme. The homelessness is insane.

    I go to Stratford quite regularly one of my mates lives there. It is a very strange place, this juxtaposition of poverty and these blade runneresque towers jutting out into the skyline, alongside cranes. It's got a very haunting skyline. I often think they could shoot a Blade Runner movie there.

    It's also a place where the Westfield Centre acts as a sort of social hub for local people. Which is probably a bit grim.

    It's very very strange. I think it has the most aggressively ugly new architecture of anywhere in the world. You have African preachers yelling at empty air, Muslims handing out free Korans, tent cities, stabbing gangs, acid attacks... it's fucking fucked plus half of Essex in Westfields
