  • Summer slow down

    Summer slow down

    Editorial August 28, 2012 9:00 am no comments

    God bless you if you’ve noticed but the Big Smoke is having a summer slow down. Partly because of “other things” slowing down the pace, and partly because the editor is frankly enjoying the sun a little too much. Never fear this week we’ll be doing a little bit of […]

    Big Smoke on Londonist Out Loud

    Editorial June 29, 2012 2:37 pm 7 comments

    Big Smoke, or at least editor Jim Jepps, had the pleasure of appearing on Londonist Out Loud this week discussing the People’s Supermarket, or lovely Mayor and the bus strike,  among many other things. We recorded it at the really interesting Arches Gallery in Tower Hamlets. Check it  out if […]

  • And… we’re back

    And… we’re back

    Editorial June 12, 2012 8:00 am no comments

    We were going to have a little post-election holiday, but sadly that turned into a rather distasteful incident involving some dodgy sausages and a woe-begotten bucket, clung to tightly for many, many hours. Apologies! However, as you can see this morning we’re back into the swing of things and have […]

    In our post-election daze here at Big Smoke Towers we’re casting around for new writers, reports and tipsters to help us promote the weird and wonderful happenings in London’s communities. You may think we’re only interested in graphs of election statistics, oh no, not a bit of it. We want […]

    We’ve had a lovely election, and we hope you have too. It’s been great to have lots of positive feedback, it really means a lot to us that so many of you found Big Smoke’s election coverage useful, enlightening or just plain entertaining. Nice. However, we sense that there’s only […]

    The day is finally here when London goes to the polls. It feels like it’s been a long time coming and although it’s a hard fought business it likely that we’ll see a very similar set of politicians at City Hall come Monday… unless you lot choose otherwise that is. […]

    Editorial: just nine days to go until the City decides

    Editorial April 24, 2012 12:59 pm no comments

    In just nine days time the city decides its future. It isn’t just about how bendy we like or buses or whether City Hall resubscribes to the Morning Star. It’s about what kind of Mayor we have, of course, but also what political priorities the city wants to set. Cycle […]

    As you’ll have already seen we at Big Smoke are building up a set of resources to help you decide how to vote at the beginning of May. We’ve already created a one stop shop for info on the London Assembly constituency candidates which tries to provide at least one […]
