    This is fantastic news about the curry touts. I walk the length of Brick Lane twice a day on my commute to work, and I'm constantly harassed by the touts. I'm on my own, I walk fast, and they see me every single day, but they still feel the need to shout their free drinks offers at me. Not every white person on Brick Lane is there for a curry!

    ASBOs may seem a bit harsh, but seeing as how the earlier fines are doing sweet f-a to stop things, I can see why the council have escalated matters.
