it's just a shame that the council housing that used to be in the posh houses (not just postwar highrises) has all gone too. This is what used to make London so dynamic, where rich kids could grow up with poor kids and vice versa, and the ethnicities so openly mixing. Im not talking like Tarquin hanging out with Boyz n the Hood exactly, but the little stories, like one of my colleagues who was bought up a street away from the celebs, but whose best mate and neighbour is a son of Somali immigrants. I think we'll be seeing less and less of that the way things have become. In short London's losing it's uniqueness.
