The sandwich board promoting this week’s Ham and High reads:
Hampstead’s Most Wanted
I live in South-East London and work in North-West London. Nothing could illustrate the difference between the two more effectively than that headline. If the South London Press ran a board saying “Peckham’s Most Wanted” you know it wouldn’t be talking bijou chi-chi, it would be talking bang-bang shoot-shoot.
In fact, if it were up to me, I’d have led with the hard crime story, Shopper injured in cabbage attack.
