It seems that when anyone complaints about tall buildings, noisy anti-social pubs or traffic, there is always someone who likes to say that it's central London and so it's tough.
However, there are some lovely bits of central London which are very quiet, we just can't afford to live in those bits (well I can't, I don't want to generalise of course).
I can't accept that because it's central London I have to have several hundred people in the street drinking, bars blaring out music so loud that I can hear it on the 7th floor with all my windows closed and my TV turned up, and people peeing everywhere, which is what happens on Isabella Street
at the back of my house.
Just because it's central London doesn't mean that we shouldn't have the same protection from licensing laws that everyone else has.
Grrr, grrr, moan, moan....!
