My mum's family is from the East End and I grew up south of the river. It's nice to visit once in a while, but I wouldn't want to live there again; too much change for the worse, too much greed, and public transport is shockingly bad since privatisation.

The Horniman is great, though. My Great-great aunt Queenie used to live on the same street (before I was born) and I used to go there regularly as a child. It was like a huge junk shop in those days. Now, Bert: you're older than me. You must remember the axolotls?
