A twitter user by the name of Alex Lomax just tweeted this:
At first I thought she might be an arch-piss-taker looking to capitalise on a sensitive subject, but then she linked to an actual listing on London2Let.com. I'm almost certain it will be removed quite soon, so here's a screengrab of the description:
It says that the current tenants are "not really looking for somebody that just wants to stay in their room." That's probably because the room is a fucking CLOSET. Here are a few close-ups. Note the complimentary Daz - nice deal-breaker tbh.
Most of me thinks this is an elaborate hoax by whoever uploaded the listing. Think about it. A house-full of Clapham lads lists their cupboard for rent; bird visits; tweets about it: internet reacts in horror; post goes viral; tremendous banter ensues and the lads head to the Northcote for a few celebratory jager-bombs before a massively messy night at Infernos.
It's a story as old as time itself.
But then a small part of me thinks this was a legitimate attempt to score an extra £500 by stuffing a stranger in a cupboard, because God is dead and London is crumbling into the pit of Hell.
