Yes because Wightman Road is very similar to Oxford Street...
I agree Nick, the taxi drivers will be unhappy.
Oh yes, but can we have a John Lewis, Debenhams, M&S and TopShop too?

Wightman Road and Green Lanes are a mere drop in the ocean and neither of them attracts tourists from all over the world.
