Here are the voices of London - rich and poor,native and immigrant, women and men - witnessed by Craig Taylor,an acclaimed journalist, playwright and writer,who spent five years exploring the city and listening to its residents.
This is the chorus of a working city,a vibrant,dynamic and constantly changing landscape,supported by a complex infrastructure and powered by its vast populace.With its promise of jobs,culture,freedom and opportunity,London is a destination for millions.Some thrive,some sink; most struggle to build a life for themselves among the teeming multitudes,to carve out their own space in the city which they call home.
From the woman whose voice announces the stations on the London Underground to the man who plants the trees along Oxford Street; from a Pakistani currency trader to a Guardsman at Buckingham Palace; from the marriage registrar at Westminster Town Hall to the director of the biggest Bethnal Green funeral parlour - together, these voices and many more paint a vivid,epic and wholly fresh portrait of 21st-century London.
Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering it's prices, weight allowances,dimensions and lowered it's qualifying compensation rates too!
