The Worst Things in Plumstead, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Plumstead.

The Worst Things
  • The fake african businessmen who wear suits and velvet coats and brown shoes and chinos on weekdays and pretend they are having business meetings in cafes and drive old avensis toyatas and think its top spec cos its the gs model go away you are fake and claiming benefits.
  • The youth's that loiter around The Slade shops wanting a fight.
  • the fact that the residents that have lived here for years have no chance in keeping heir buisnesses or creating new ones
  • The worst thing about Plumstead is the fact that if you come here you will inevitably get mugged, burgled or assaulted, etc, etc. It's a disgrace.
  • kid down on the high steet
  • A youth culture of drugs and there are few shops where you can actually buy something. Great if you want to talk to someone in Lagos for an hour, surf the web, get a variety a hair styles (there must be at least ten "Hair Dressers"), get your nails done, send a package to Katmandu and there is actually a Nepalese Restaurant that doesn't seem able to sell anything to eat?
  • Annoying Chav girls and hoody boyz. yawn... you are soooo boring, Woefully neglected in places and can feel isolated & not much going on. Please extend the DockLands light railway down here please!
  • I've still got a couple of months left.
  • Drunken Pikeys, graffiti. Woefully neglected. Shame. Why is Plumstead's potential completely ignored?
  • Pretty much everything.
  • The drug problem - heroin. The graffitti and the rise of the 'Burberry Boy' and his Geeeezzzeeerrr mates.
  • The whole fucking area
  • Near Woolwich, but its bad enough here anyway.
  • The attitude in the area. Loads of depressed south east londoners. Everthing seems to shut down. Alot of crime.
