I thought I’d end the year by giving you a little glimpse of what my particular patch of London looks like. It’s representative of much of the UK at the moment, and isn’t a particularly pretty sight, I’m afraid. Whether it’s possible for an entire country to go into administration I’m not sure, but there are times when it feels as if such an eventuality is just around the corner.
(Apologies - I slipped a little cartoon in there too, by my own, dreadful hand. You see, that's the credit crunch for you: you can't even get proper cartoonists anymore)
