Newsvine – London squatters make their home in luxury mansions

leave a comment »

I’ve heard sometimes they are blamed for neighborhood problems, like the theft of the lead from a local church roof might be attributed to them though no proof. Were Charles Laughton and Vivian Leigh “squatters” in “The Sidewalks of London” (“buskers” sidewalk performers in aka “St. Martin’s Lane” 1938)? Maybe? If so then “squatters” were before WWII? Perhaps the veterans of WWI then. I worked for someone who went to the “London Institute of Archaeology” excavating at Winchester Cathedral who said he lived in a “squat”. Oh bodie doe doe.
