Our Neo Victorian Future

The vast Victorian warehouse space behind Kings Cross station is being hollowed out for use by students of the Creative Arts from all over the world!

Looks fun but somewhat incongruous in a country in the middle of its worst recession (depression?) for nearly a century, with record youth unemployment, half of young black men in the UK unable to get a job and student fees at record levels only available to the rich .

Middle class salaries have not risen with the cost of living for 25 years but at least the children of the international 1%, whose income has gone up 340% in same period and are paying 30% less tax, will think of their time studying in tax haven London with fond memories.
