  • Residents are less than happy about a mural in Streatham: they’re not really sure if it’s art.
  • The new mayor’s new arts and culture director has some new ideas. Actually, Londonist reckons she’s sound.
  • The Aussies are packing their bags in droves: apparently the jobs market is better down under.
  • Boris is to retain his column in the Telegraph. And call it The New Londoner?
  • Black Cab drivers look set to get a helping hand from Bojo with a reduction in annual inspections.
  • A young father has died tragically on the rails as he ran to recover gifts which he had left on a train.
  • Brixton mural from simpologist’s flickr stream under the Creative Commons Licence.

    It's impressive - anyone know if it's still there?

    The mural is still around though it has an additional window. Information about the mural can be found in wikipedia under the search term of Brixton murals.

    I actually didn't know there were so many in Brixton - it's really rather exciting.
    We'll have to do a Londonist mural walk sometime.

    I led the walk mentioned in the wiki entry. There is a google map of where they are all located. They are all really worth seeing!
