There's a Brexit battle of the balconies in Gospel Oak

Isabelle Aron

It's only a few weeks until the EU referendum on June 23 and the debate is hotting up in London. We've already had a Brexit-themed battle of the burgers, and now there's a Brexit battle of the balconies in Gospel Oak. 

After residents in Lissenden Gardens placed a 'Vote Leave' sign on their balcony, a neighbour decided to get creative and make his own anti-Brexit banner to put next to it. Frank Chalmers placed his homemade banner next to the 'Vote Leave' sign, with the words '...if you want to cut workers' rights'. Clever. But isn't that going to make any run-ins on the front doorstep pretty awkward? Apparently not. Mr Chalmers' son, Malcolm, said that his dad is 'the type of person who likes to make a point in a humorous manner' and has since given the neighbours a bottle of wine as a peace offering.
