Anyway I am taking a short break in the beutiful city of San Sebastian and I have just enough time to present you with four of my favourite images of the last two weeks.
The website of Canary Wharf Group PLC describes their shining buildings as 'A feat of civic transformation in the heart of London, Canary Wharf is not just a place, it is a company.'
To the backdrop of the intense housing crisis described in my last blog entry, Canary Wharf Group PLC is one of the companies most directly invested in the aggressive gentrification of the city, helping to make the capital of the UK an impossible place for the city's poor to live. In their own words:
"Canary Wharf Group plc (CWG) is an integrated property development, investment and management group of companies.
It has achieved one of the greatest feats of civic transformation – developing previously derelict docklands into over 16 million square feet of office, retail and leisure space across its iconic business and shopping district in inner London.
In the last two decades it has developed more top-quality office space in London than any other company, helping to position the capital as one of the best places in the world to locate a business."
In the words of the squatters of London: 'Capitalism is crisis'.
