In early 1990 I worked for a posh firm of real estate consultants called Hillier Parker May and Rowden in the Heart of the Square Mile ( City of London) I was there for around 3 months before we opened a new office in London Docklands, At that time Canary Wharf was a Huge Hole in the ground. Anyway, Jaques Attali was the new head of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and did not win many friends in London, certainly not in the circles I moved in. There was not a Building in London he felt was posh enough for him and his new, ( Public Bank).Of course, Docklands was not even fit for the Banks Lavatories in the attitudes at the time.
Some press cutting from Mid 90´s when I had started my own successful consultancy Firm. The second one challenging the then Mayor of the City of London on his feudal attitude to where Banks should be located.
