Bizarrely, when I was travelling home last Friday night at about 7:00pm-ish the Wembley arch already was showing the red white and blue lights. The Paris attacks didn't start until 21:20pm CET.. obviously, Paris is two hours ahead of London, but even so, if they were being shown because of that.. they managed to do it very quickly indeed!?

London makes many mistakes when it comes to urban renewal but when it gets it right, its done better than anywhere else in the world.

..and the continuing transformation of Kings Cross is a prime example of just how right London can do it.
