n.b. It’s wrong. London’s financial machinery is central to money laundering crime world-wide. See the Pandora Papers for more.

L3 (Day 39): On Foot

The city is bounded by rivers. Banked up inside their curves, the sprawl of the urban is curtailed and it takes no time to escape into open farmland.

Further on is protected woodland and a lake (“broad”) that was formed from industrial era excavations. Both pleasant locations for exercise.

Every square inch of land is managed, clearly designated as recreational, industrial, residential, commercial, farming, military, conservation, transport, or the ominously labelled developmental land use.

Those who own land are well represented in Parliament, the House of Lords and Buckingham Palace. All changes pass through these vested powers slowly and grudgingly.

What do we need a say in land use for now commons land is an anachronism? Move along people, nothing to see here.

Walking for three hours compensated for a day at my desk yesterday.

There is a rush on

To buy country estates here.

Cities are passé

n.b. I won’t bore you with the details, but it seems that the unnecessarily wealthy are keen to have a bit more garden and staff / servants to help keep everything orderly. It seems living on a super-yacht, or in a city centre penthouse suite feels like confinement during a pandemic lockdown. Poor loves.
