You are so right, and it just keeps getting worse - preparations to close???. This, coupled with the lack of reasonable banking facilities in the area, has got me thinking about contacting Declan, the BBC Breakfast money guy about the 'them & us' feeling I'm getting, it might make an interesting item for him. E & C obviously has no attraction for many (most) commercial operations today.
On the other side of Waterloo Bridge
in the Covent Garden/Strand Area there are two Tesco's that are better stocked and staffed and they can't say it's for the folk that work there as they're open til 11.00pm. There are also numerous branches of all of the major banks including no less than three HSBCs in a half mile radius of the CG Piazza!
