I hate Notting Hill Carnival. Every year I hate it even more. It is not a fun place to visit and I would never recommend that anyone take their family to such a violent and unsafe event. I really want to start a coalition to stop Notting Hill Carnival or move it to another location. It basically alienates the residents of Notting Hill and inconveniences everyone.
Every year I have to move my car for fear that it will be trashed. I come home and there is garbage on my door which the council does a really bad job of cleaning up. There is glass covering the streets. I have to move home for the weekend out of fear and disgust. And who ends up paying for a hotel? Certainly not the council which has inconvenienced my life.
It is a joke. It infuriates me to no end…. GRRR!
