London Three

St Paul’s again, and is it surprising that it became such a symbol? Even now the committees and groups of concerned Londoners who try and preserve Hampstead Heath remain angry that the new buildings given permission by a nod from Boris Johnson (it is sick-making to have to mention his name on the Post but it’s important people know that many of the terrible new skyscrapers being built at the moment did not have actual ‘planning permission’  – what a quaint, old-fashioned concept – but were nodded through by him when he was Mayor), these new buildings now spoil the view of St Paul’s from the Heath. Go up to Parliament Hill and look and you will see that more damage was done, aesthetically, in 2015-19 than in 1941.
