London Bridge, the locaton of the proposed new skyscraper, is 5 minutes walk from the City of London - power house of the UK economy with huge numbers of unfilled vacancies - yet unemployment stays stubbornly high in Southwark. The creation of ten thousand new jobs will not benefit those unemployed. As with the City of London now, the new skyscraper will create jobs for people who live in Kent,Essex,etc who commute in. The people who will be able to afford to live in the proposed skyscraper will be rich and thus not historic locals. If we really want to change the face of Southwark we need to raise attainment in our schools not play patsy to megalomaniac property developers.
