One pound fish!

Market patter is one of the sights and sounds of London and has been for centuries, and here is an example of a guy who is a master of his craft. Trading out of Upton Park Market he sells fish. For one pound. And is a local legend, especially on match day, as the video shows! He is a Bengali Del-Boy and just needs a Rodney.

So what's this got to do with the Bush? Not much, at first sight but it's the best example I've seen on film at least of what we stand to lose in our neck of the woods now that the Council's scheme, ruled illegal at the High Court but being pursued anyway, seems set to go ahead.

Do you really want a line of boutiques instead?
