“Heavy-handed Southbank border control!”: Free South London on breaking the shackles of oppression


Free South London's experimental South London Crest

Twinterview? Tweeterview? Brixton Blog speaks to @FreeSouthLondon via Twitter about their plans for an independent South London

Y shld S.Ldn be free?

South London is a beautiful hemimetropolis that has for far too long been overlooked in favour of her northern twin

What R U trying to free S.Ldn from?

Prejudice. Lack of funding & development. Self-hatred… And a lack of Tube lines! SORT IT OUT TfL!!

Where does S.Ldn begin & end?

Good Q! Obv the Filthy Brown Thames is the nth border. But cities never end neatly. They sprawl on & on…

Can you just move south to become a part of our nation or do you need stronger ties and a decent blood line? 

A kid in Asia obsessed with CitizenSmith, RootsManuva & AFCWimbledon is more SL than a kid in New Cross who always goes out in Shoreditch

What kind of nation will we be – aggressive or peace-loving? Any invasions of N.Ldn on the cards?

Ha ha! Sadly the days of aggressive imperialistic expansion seem to be gone… Thus we SLers need to fight with culture – art, music etc.

What would the main policies in a free S.Ldn be?

Support all grassroot initiatives! i.e B£, AFC Wimbledon, Chateux Tooting. Stop gang violence. And heavy handed southbank border control!

Is there a S.Ldn national anthem?

National anthem? We need a public debate on this! Or maybe an open competition. Also need to choose a patron saint, a national flag etc.


  1. Hurrah! I am in full support of the coat of arms and the national anthem and the whole shebang. I’m a Peckham dweller myself so the wondrous Brixton is just right around the corner.
