A crash at every speed
Yes, I know we're all going to suffer eventually for their idiocy and venality (and for the 'Labour' government which has so grotesquely mollycoddled them), but the prospect of 500,000 bankers losing their jobs just makes me want to run out into the street waving a rattle and scarf. Never has redundancy been so richly deserved. But what will happen to all the yuppiedromes being built for these people in such unprepossessing locations as Stratford, Silvertown, Poplar, East Greenwich and Bow? Or what of the stacked glass trading floors of 'Ken's towers'? What of the shiny new city being prepared for 2012? A tragedy, no...?
