comic comics condeming colliers wood

Went to a stand up gig in an over-priced pub in Colliers Wood last Thursday night, 12 March,

Every time I go there the comics go on about what a rough neighbourhood Colliers Wood is. It isn't at all.  Oh, there was that 'queue rage' incident in the Colliers Wood Sainsbury's where an incomer got punched to death by a local. But Colliers Wood is no more dangerous than any other part of South London. Yes, I can say that with a straight face.

There are a substantial amount of chavs in Colliers Wood so I can see why visitors might think the area is a little dodgy but the area of South London I live in is much more dangerous. Not that I have any problems... I allways wear running shoes and shout "I have no money!". Although I find "Jesus loves you!" with an insanely beatific smile is more effective.
