I’ve tried to steer clear of this one. I don’t live in London, so why do I care?
I care because he is the physical manifestation of the angry suburbs. I care because he is the physical manifestation of a massive rise in voter turnout.
And that means that he is also the physical manifestation of the death of the New Labour project. We knew Tony didn’t want to hand over power. Now we know why.
On a lighter note, apparently he’s also the physical manifestation of the storm botnet.

I was warned about the closure of the New Piccadilly Café about a year ago. I was distraught enough to actually ask Lorenzo about it the next time I went in. He told me in no uncertain terms about the rent, the rates, and the fact that with the best will in the world regulars like me were never going to pay the prices that he needed to charge to keep it open. Of course he’s right, but I still can’t believe that it’s finally closing. I have done deals, forged and rediscovered friendships and chilled out after hard meetings in that café more times than I care to remember. I shall miss it.
The Guardian interviews Lorenzo. It is a sad passing. (Found at i like)
