16 April - Expensive money for sale

Something that grabbed my attention on Hugh Neal’s Maggot Sandwich last weekend (third paragraph) was his observation that the number of empty shops on Bexleyheath Broadway had declined.

A sort of retail Wonga. Maybe Bexleyheath is not as prosperous as some politicians would have you believe.
