The Mean Streets Of Sydenham….

Mr Holland refuted the idea that Mr Murray's killing was a planned attack. He said: "If there's any sort of plan why is this at noon in one of the busiest places in south east London?
"Because we suggest to you that the key to this series of events may be for you decide that nobody was planning anything that day and this is an event that blew up on the streets as it happened between young men who survive, until this event, on the streets of Sydenham. "
You’d think Sydenham was a favela in Brazil, or something…

It appears that many areas of London and elsewhere populated predominantly from a certain community would make the average favela seem almost idyllic. And doubtless it's all our fault somehow...

This is Hanif Qureshi's old manor but Martin McDonagh be avoids writing about certain things and certain people.

They are both brilliant writers BTW.

At least the weather would be better...

"They are both brilliant writers BTW."
