I work at Elephant and Castle. On hearing that, any Londoner will probably emit a small and uncertain sound from a face halfway between a smile and a grimace. It's known as a series of large traffic junctions surrounding a 70s era shopping centre that's the nearest I've seen to the department store I visited in Prague not long after the end of communism (but with a cracking cheapo household shop).
So you can understand why tonight's TV news programmes were more than slightly (even incredulously) agog to report that current ambitious redevelopment plans have been endorsed as an example to the world by Bill Clinton, and his vague promise to visit (mind you, that was only a way of avoiding a question about his attitude to Boris Johnson).
