This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Um, err .. delicate subject:
    “Tiktok prankster Mizzy” – is seriously mentally ill.
    He needs detaining before either he hurts somebody, or more likely, someone (quite rightly) loses their temper.
    Conventional “criminal” standards are not applicable, because he’s off his head.

    Don’t bother with the Standard’s wifi article. On of the comments (it wasn’t mine) sums it up perfectly: 10 out of 10 for waffle and 0 out of 10 for information.

    But what puzzles me is why the trains are broadcasting the SSID if there’s no service powering it. OK, so it’s provision for the future (but probably 5G will get there first) but it’s surely possible to switch the SSID off — or at least, change it to “not yet implemented” so we don’t waste time trying to connect to it.
