It’s small beer compared to what’s happening globally, but as I live in Central London I have to say that what developers are doing to it, with the connivance of the authorities, is really getting me down. The whole place is a polluted building site, decent old buildings are being torn down and replaced by cheap glass and steel boxes which simply encompass more space, small businesses as closing as flats are bought by absentee owners who just want to add property to their portfolios, but don’t love in those properties.And one is personally being edged into a situation where one will simply have to move, for financial, aesthetic and health reasons. I know this is in one way simply history repeating itself, and that there must come a day when greed, selfishness and naked materialism will no longer have dominion over us; but I have to get my sense of anger and frustration off my chest.
