Two trips this morning..
One to the roof top cafe/restaurant at The Exchange at London Bridge for a nice strong flat white. Met the chef, Angus who a very nice chap. They will soon be opening an open-air, roof top seating area, right in the shadow of The Shard
On my way back passed the Immigration Office in St Thomas Street
and noticed the long queues of young foreign men outside, which made me think of the all those men in the B&Q car park at OKR.
Second trip of the day was to B&Q, where I counted around 25 in the car park. A sure sign of the lack of work available. I find it difficult to feel sorry for them, when I am aware that many legitimate painters and decorators are finding it very hard to get work.
Those who have flocked to London must be realising the streets are not paved with gold....
But still they keep coming
