The Worst Things in Lewisham, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Lewisham.

The Worst Things
  • Named the LEAST PEACEFUL area of England & Wales in 2013. Lewisham is infested with broken feckless families, little thuggish children, high unemployment, high welfare dependency, shoddy council homes, and shoddy shops. It is run by a corrupt Labour Council.
  • The whole place, bulldoze and start again.
  • Tacky blue council signs, every one with a stupid tag on it.
  • The Council is stuffed full of small minded bureaucrats with a total lack of vision.It's been almost a one-party state for decades. The other parties can do little more than moan from the sidelines.
  • Pikeys
  • Lewisham 'Shopping' centre. How dire. Even the main stream shops there are poor. Lewisham heading the same way as Woolwich. The market has gone so down hill. I remember before they turned the high street into one big bus lane that the market was great. Don't get me wrong, if you want fruit and veg, you couldn't come to better place. But thats it. Fruit and Veg every stall.
  • All the bloody students
  • Too much traffic
  • The rounabout in the town centre. It has causes drivers to lose common sense and the ability to negotiate a busy roundabout. Badly designed itís a nightmare for pedestrians as well as motorists and cyclists. Grate if you need an innovative method to commit suicide.
  • Cars everywhere. Total traffic jam 3 or 4 hours a week.
  • The public transport (or lack of it).
  • It always looks half finished.
  • The Catford Pussy wid da green nastiness eyes.
