Our dear freeholders and property developers, Shaftesbury, responsible along with a handful of others of their type for the wholesale destruction of Soho in the name of Greed, have at 7am this morning with great noise cut down the trees in Broadwick Street outside their latest victim, Number 57 – which has an impact on us as we live above it. And the noise of their builders over the next year as they transform the building into another hideous concrete-and-glass, shiny-brick ziggurat will add to the fun. But oh! the money they’ll make!
Still, one must remain Zen. After all, ‘tears cannot free us from trouble, not screams from evil days’. One must think instead about self-preservation.
