Unusual Views over City Rooftops

One of the consolations of having a City day job is the chance to get from office receptions views that are not available to the public. This might be considered zero consolation by those who deride the wage-slave, but it is something at least.

So here are three views, with slight apologies for the limitations of shots taken through a window and from a mobile phone:

St Paul's Camp: The Party's Over. Official.

“You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately...Depart I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!”

These words are attributed to Oliver Cromwell for a speech that he made on 20 April 1653 to the Rump Parliament, but equally could symbolise the cry of the City of London Corporation before they trooped to the Court of Appeal to ask the Court to reject the appeal against eviction by the Occupy LSX Movement, who have been camped in the precincts of St Paul’s Cathedral since 15 October last year.
