The Ark of Brompton Cross

Playboys swarming the streets of SW3 have turned Brompton Cross into the Arabian answer to Oxford Circus

 

Animals allegedly went into The Ark 2×2 and last night, in London’s Brompton Cross visiting Arabs paraded in a similar fashion.

 

Travelling in pairs in super cars (a stretch 6×6 Mercedes G-Wagen being amongst the most ludicrous) with garish yet very expensive garb (nothing less than Billionaire and Vertu is good enough), these perfume bathers bizarrely showed their winter outfits – which included padded vests and fur shawls – to SW3 in August.

The Ark of Brompton Cross – A place one couldn’t dream up even if one tried

 

With many glowing also in luminescent splendour, these playboy brats swarmed the pavements like wasps. They enveloped their surroundings as a hovering mass and showed off in multi-coloured Veyrons and Wraiths. They did not stop for cover even when it rained and bemused residents were left overwhelmed by nothing but a sickly stench.

 

Since the visiting super-rich – whose prime activities consist of preening and promenading – actually spent very little (they mostly drink water), they contributed hardly anything to the local economy. Their ostentatious annual invasion has sadly become accepted as “normal” but it shouldn’t be such: Brompton Cross is now little more than the Arabian answer to Oxford Circus. It’s worse than a Greek tragedy.

  1. They should not be allowed to get away with their crimes here – They don’t pay parking tickets, fines, anything. It is bad.

    1. You sir are a Confounded moron… The rididiculously low..level of class you display… is as breath taking…as it is imbecilic..

      You truly repesent and reflect the epitomy of knowing “The price of everything and the value of nothing!”

    2. Dear Khaled
      Without oil you lot would be chasing camels in your backward, medieval Middle Eastern rubbish dumps.
      You weren’t even able to find or refine. You ahd to rely on civilised countries to do that.
      As for your licking your ‘loafers’…your grandpa went barefoot…sand peasants.

  2. If they behaved they would be welcomed. They simply don’t and that is why the residents have organised petitions and the council are taking action. Bring on the ABSOS.

  3. Chelsea has always been a multi cultural community which has made it a wonderful eclectic, eccentric an interesting place to live. However this new wave of Russians and saudi’s have zero interest in community involvement, not even a “Good Morning”. Treat all other neighbours with contempt and their drivers hanging about on the street or sleeping in their cars 24 hours a day is a nightmare. Their money has actually cheapened the place. The character, feel and “local-ness” of Chelsea has changed so significantly over the last 10 years, its such a shame.

  4. G-d truly has a sense of humor to have showered such barbaric people with unimaginable wealth. While leaving us Jews on the only real-estate in the Middle East devoid of oil riches. Of course this forced us to use our intellect to prosper, which is something you are not required to have to be a Arab playboy, indeed it seems to be discouraged.

    1. yes, but look at the fantastic inventiveness of Israel…pharm; IT etc
      I thank God we have Israel acting as policeman in an area dominated by mad men.
      I am an avid supporter of Israel. Yes, it gets some things very wrong, but it does have a democratic and judicial system beyond the reach of despots

  5. Most of these guys, whom I thought were rich, simply import their cars for a few weeks. If they really are rich, why don’t they leave a couple of cars here? This importation strategy is ruining their image as super-rich, revealing that they’re really paupers who can’t afford two Lambos: one in Riyadh and another one for London.
    Their only extravagance seems to be ordering their cars with non-standard exhaust systems, so noisy that you could lose your hearing if you drove these monstrosities as far as Brighton.
    These ME buyers must constitute the entire world market for Lamborghinis, which are ugly, overblown sub-supercars which have never been raced, unlike Ferrari or McLaren with a fine heritage on the track.

  6. To be blunt, this is the first time the Steeples Times has come down on the side of residents.
    In the past any reference to Arab selfishess et al, has been condemned as racist.
    Rich Arabs have a very bad and well deserved reputation for behaving rudely in our city: just accept it.
    I can think of no other race which comes to this town with FA regard for the citizenry.
    If we planted wine bars and behaved like pigs in Doha we would be kicked out.
    As for the Saudi’s…they force us to build mosques in this country and don’t even allow a bible into their backward and very god forsaken country.
    Sometimes I wish we had never discovered oil in their dreadful, trouble making and backward countries.
    I except the Jordanians in this….I rarely meet a bad one…charming and good friends of our country. The rest….stuff ’em.
    The idiotic comments from Khaled amply demonstrate their crass vulgarity.

    1. That is untrue. We have consistently reported and criticised “selfish behaviour” by people of all nationalities. It is not just Arabs who drive super cars in an irresponsible fashion. There are Europeans and Russians who are just as appalling and we have featured several of them (as well as several Arabs) on our pages as our archive will testify.

  7. I think “Khaled” too utterly brainless, uneducated and comically dim to be real. He’s really a twit called Sid and sells delicious “Bacon Buttys” in Balham and enjoys trying to be being irritating……………!!!
