It's amazing how a few weeks ago no one gave a damn about camden market or the stables area yet cause it's appeared on the net suddenly everyone jumps on the bandwagon.
I'm sorry, but, what's so amazing about it? It's not that people "didn't give a damm about Camden or the Stables market" before, it's just that we have now learnt, thanks to the net and the newspapers, what they plan to do with it, and we don't like it. I don't see what's amazing about that.
If there's a supply and demand the Independent traders will not go out of business they'll just have to relocate to were there demand can be met. My impression from everyone i talked to about it is well yes people will be losing there jobs but more jobs and revenue will be created for the area at the end of the day i've worked in a GAP store there aint nothing evil about it like everyone is making out ohhhhhhhhhh EVIL TOPMAN EVIL BOOTS well sorry lol but people gotta eat and those kind of businesses are going to provide alot more jobs and revenues than the market ever did.
Why would they have to relocate when they have been there for many years? Why can "EVIL TOPMAN" or "EVIL BOOTS" go somewhere else? There are many places in Camden where they could set up shop and do business. Why destroy a fine piece of architecture and one of the most iconic and with more soul places in London?
About these kind of businesses bringing in more jobs and revenue, I seriously doubt it. Camden Market gets a lot of revenue from tourists, I don't think they will come to Camden to buy toothpaste at Boots...
I'm sorry for having my evil capitalist opinion of wanting to crush individuality but at the end of the day i'd rather see people who can't get a job and good wages get one than letting people who don't really factor into the local area equation keep the market for their own selfish benefit. It's not as if any of the stuff can't be found on EBAY or H&M these days as well.
Don't be sorry for your "evil capitalist opinion"; you have your point of view, I have mine. And mine is definitely not "enrich the rich". I don't know if you are referring to me when you say "people who don't really factor into the local area equation", but I live in Camden and I work in Camden, so I think I do factor. And I don't know if it is going to make any difference, but I'm going to fight this any way I can
