Yes, but that's Westminster Bridge. It's the footbridges from Charing Cross to the Royal Festival Hall that I was referring to at the start of this thread. Sadly a bus can't be used...

I know of at least two pubs, and one social club in Bermondsey, where when the last regulars are left in the bar, and the doors are locked, everyone who wants to smoke will just light up and merrily puff away, and screw the no smoking law.

Hardly crime of the century! Not too sure of the intricacies of the legislation, but surely if the doors are locked then the pubs and club cease to become public places in any event?

I didn't advocate it as crime of the century, and I too have no idea of the intricacies of the law in that kind of situation.
I was just using it as an example to illustrate that laws are regularly flouted, and that whoever is charged with enforcing said laws will ignore the breaking of them.
A while back, I came out of a restaurant in Charterhouse Square one night with my niece.
We were walking toward Farringdon Street, looking over our shoulders for a black cab, when two policemen suggested we try one of a line of cars waiting outside Fabric, the club.
They weren't even minicabs, they were just unlicensed touts hoping to pull an illegal job, and the policemen steered us in their direction!
We hailed a black cab in Farringdon Street.

Debrajoan, were I not already happily married to the best woman in the world, I would lay a line on you, and mount a campaign that you'd be unable to resist.
You'd be walking in tall cotton, and sipping fine champagne at Oblix at The Shard, as befits a perceptive woman who favours the finest taxi service in the world.
Escorted by a silver fox who knows his way around a wine list, as well as he knows his way around our fair metropolis.

Tom, while I am flattered by your blandishments, (I had to google walking in tall cotton), I'm afraid that ship has sailed, so I'll have to forgo a trip to the top of the Shard with you, filthy rich ex cab driver though you may be.
So it is rather fortuitous that you already have the best woman in the world!
Ironically I am in the early stages of a relationship with a guy involved in sales for a black cab computerised circuit, he chases leads around London to gain corporate clients for the circuit.
Now, while I took your post for what it definitely was, one South Londoner joking with another one, and long may we be able to do that, I can imagine that others, just visiting the site, may have seen shades of the LinkedIn-gate brou ha-ha of the horny, (allegedly), old barrister who responded to the 27 y.o. female barrister's photo on LinkedIn.
To reiterate, I don't see you for one minute as doing that, you sly old silver fox you, but let's be careful out there.

I wish there was a "like" button.
