The de­signer likes the bed­rooms at Chiltern

Fire­house and ev­ery­thing at St John

What would you do as Mayor for the day? Get to work on the dif­fer­ence be­tween rich and poor. In Lon­don the rich are re­ally rich and the poor are re­ally poor. It’s not ac­cept­able; it’s a bad so­cial struc­ture. Who’s your hero? Hu­man­ity: from bac­te­ria four bil­lion years ago, to the fish, to the frog, to the mon­key, to the su­per­mon­keys we are to­day. Evo­lu­tion is so beau­ti­ful, you have to ad­mire us.
