Docklands rainbow –

Do the bankers see it

Or a pot of gold?

I was at a meeting at the HQ of one of the big UK banks earlier this year, in Canary Wharf in London’s Docklands. We were having a coffee break when there was a collective intake of breath and we all whipped out our iPhones – you can see why. The low building in the foreground is Billingsgate fish market – apart from that and the occasional rainbow (or two), it’s all tower blocks in every direction.
