not sure what's scarier the guff that has been written or the true bits that have been left out...like the loss of victorian and georgian buildings for example...

On the up... literally floor by floor!

The salivating over house prices is nothing new for that scummy little rag. No doubt our current inglorious council will add this to their list of lies about regeneration and 'a rising tide lifts all boats' bollocks.

I find the tone of this article rather disconcerting. It is all getting better, because it's expensive. Nowhere do we read that what is most needed, is more council houses. 'Affordable housing' is a farce.
It's remarkable that there is no appreciation for the authenticity of SE1 but just for its gentrified version.

Personally I don't really appreciate the authenticity you speak of. Much prefer the gentrified version especially in the largely grotty Blackfriars area.

In order to appreciate authenticity, one has to make an effort. There are lovely things to be discovered in the Blackfriars area: historically, culturally and architecturally.
