Silent London

The Unsolicited Opinion London is silent. You must have heard of the new strain of coronavirus. It seems like the situation is out of control here, in the South-East of England. That’s why new restrictions are in place and we won’t be able to celebrate Christmas with family and friends. Maybe these restrictions over the... Continue Reading →

Respect

Families and Society

The lost community

The Unsolicited Opinion The beautiful weather we had over the weekend made people think they could go to the park, find a spot, sit down and get tanned. This irresponsible behaviour didn’t go unnoticed by the Lambeth council, which unfortunately had to close Brockwell Park on Sunday due to the high number of visitors ignoring... Continue Reading →

A Modern Pandemic

The Unsolicited Opinion “That branch of the lake of Como, which extends towards the south, is enclosed by two unbroken chains of mountains, which, as they advance and recede, diversify its shores with numerous bays and inlets.” I woke up with this in my head today.
