Myanmar's Ambassador to the U.K. Locked Out of London Embassy
"Myanmar's ambassador to London says he's been locked out of the country's embassy His deputy reportedly has been taken has taken over the embassy in behalf of Myanmar's ruling military junta. NPR's Frank Langfitt has the story from London Quads are men stood outside the embassy in London's wealthy Mayfair section, unable to access the building amid a small crowd of protesters and Bridget police officers. I've been locked out, he told Reuters. It's kind of a coup in the middle of London. You can see that they occupy my building since the military staged a coup in February. The ambassador has broken with the ruling junta, who called for the release of detained civilian leader on Sans Souci. On this day, troops in Myanmar opened fire on pro democracy protesters, local media reports They killed at least 15 people and wounded dozens. Activists say that about 600 civilians have died at the hands of security forces

"Now you'll walk almost the end of half moon street certainly beyond halfway. You will walk past the hilton key on the right side the west side of the streets that you can see the flemings hotel clearly. There has often been a lot of building work going on here. It still As the boundary of shepherd market is still very highly sought after location. You'll see it's a fairly quiet straight even though you can see piccadilly running along the end at the south so it's being redeveloped but fleming's hotel has been here from very many years. It's nothing to do with. The inflaming is famous espionage circles. The hotel is very nice. We actually did the photo shoot in the bar of the hotel for the first set of spy walks that i did with airbnb. And it's a really nice bar. It's a basement bar and it's called monitors. These are all very interesting things because a basement bar has no windows. And therefore it was used by people like vera atkins to meet her spies. Her agents and debrief them before they perhaps went off for a long meeting in one of the flats and offices around shepherd market so menendez was attractive because it had no windows. But what i found when we're doing the photo shoot for the spy walks was it has no phone reception either so we had to keep going outside to get the photographers cell. So we can talk to him. And so i find interesting that there's a bar with no windows and no cell phone signal way you can meet. Spies right in the middle of london just off piccadilly fleming's hotel is also interesting because it was the home of bertie wooster and the christie house connections to the hotels. Well they believe it is the model for bertram hoteling agatha christie. Although other hotels claim that credit as well the likelihood is that i she did stay here when she was in london quite often that at least some elements of this hotel. The looking at today have made it into her stories as part of bertram although she is not a spy writer us such you do find a crossover between mystery stories on spying. A lot of spy. Novels are actually mystery novels. That happened to have some espionage content. If you believe anything on wikipedia you will know that. Bertram hotel is popularly believed to have been inspired by brown's hotel however the oxford dictionary of national biography. That suggests fleming's because agatha christie was known to stay at fleming's fleming's is one of my favorite hotels in this area. Because it's so little known it's kind of you have to be in a certain group of people to really know about it. They might disagree. It's been there for over one years. I think it's been on this site since it opened in eighteen fifty one. It certainly is old enough building and it looks like it could have been and they really play up. Their spike connections to bar is lovely. It's a really nice place to finish the walk. What we never did on the airbnb walk was actually going for drink because the cocktails are a little expensive but if you have to budget if your hair traveling to the uk on holiday it's definitely worth going in and getting a beer or cocktail in mineta's bar in the basement of fleming's before i had my world to walk also used to talk here about christina scar back. Because she was one of the agents vera atkins would have run and probably met in this hotel and the wonderful biography of christina by clan. Malay- is definitely worth a read. I will be reviewing that book. The spy who loved by clem molly in a future episode of spies of london. But i mention it because this whole war can indeed..

"Six have been tracking a foreign prince a middle eastern prince who perhaps might be slightly large around the mayfair and making sure he doesn't cause a diplomatic incident his john day to had been spent hanging around mount st while fatboy had himself measured for a pair of purdy shotguns. First precariously brandishing a try gun. That's a practice test gun around the premises then throwing a tantrum. When he discovered he would have to wait two years before they were ready. And then later on. They're watching fat again from van outside a shuttered. Whorehouse here in south audley street the whole houses of south audley street are not widely advertised. Not obvious on this walk. But the interesting thing to me is that john kerry when he worked for my five worked in the building that you'll be seeing h. On this wall like field housing kuzma street. So john's lunch times would have been spent himself hanging around south orchestrate incurs street and therefore many of the locations in his earlier books and his perhaps most famous books tend to be from mayfair. More later now. The reason i liked per is because yes. The guns are intricate and expensive and highly regarded both as weapons for country shooting and as works of art in terms of the fine metalwork on them in the the woodwork on them but they also do a nice range of clothes racks jackets and so on and this shop is just great fun to look around his really old fashioned and traditional and just everything that makes mayfair great is exemplified by visit to purchase gunshop however however we are not going down south audley street we have we have a date in mount street gardens so we are heading east along mount straight past all the shops in the fancy restaurants. And on the right you will see an estate agents and passage along the side of the estate agents. Which takes you into mount street gardens. Sometimes as georgia's gardens and when you walk through first of all let me say it's even more of a favourite with me than grosvenor square gardens because it smaller. It's more intimate. It's sort of l-shaped which means you get little heidi corners here but also because eight is famous for kgb activity and you will see straight away and since georgia's gardens. Their high number of benches wooden benches many of which new would not have been there during the cold war however many of them were there during the cold war. And i've got information. That and i quote the second bench on the rights was used as a kgb signaling system to communicate with spies now the wrestlemania benches now that it's difficult to understand the second bench on the right..

"Do know victims were brought here this afternoon and trauma teams were standing by ready To take care of these gunshot gunshot one patients that came from Mayfair Mall today. Rebecca cloth, and we do know in some of the communication that we heard between law enforcement that two juveniles were shot and the indication that we were getting early is that there were no fatalities. We're showing you now. I believe these are filed these air previous pictures from the scene Mayfair Mall of Law Enforcement on the scene there. It has been a very active busy day. You can see just how big the footprint is of Mayfair Mall there. On. That is if we cut away from that. That is some of the video that we are trying to be protective of their, but you can see the number of law enforcement on the scene here. Because there is a large building that they have to go through. And based on what we heard from the mayor. That statement is now at least an hour old that they were still looking for a shooter, but we are now Less than a half hour away and where we will get where we will get an update from law enforcement. At least that's what they're indicating on where they stand in this investigation where they stand in this multiple shooting, and just how many people were shot, But Steve, as you can imagine, they're very busy. They're very active. They're trying to figure out Everything as well. And we have heard from some folks who said that they're people who are inside. In fact, let's throw to one of the sound bites that we have from a man who knows of two people, including his uncle, who was shot inside. My concern from a concho TMJ fours. Charles Benson. You're listening to their our continuing coverage. A shooting at Mayfair Mall this afternoon reports are that multiple people have been shot were reporting that our sources tell us at least seven people shot at Mayfair, the mayor saying. Fortunately that he believes none of those injuries are life threatening. We're hearing from the mall itself now in a statement, Mayfair mall, saying, We are disheartened and anger that our guests and tenants were subject to this violent incident today. We are thankful for our partners at the woman tells the police department and then we are cooperating with them is their investigation develops. Mayfair is closed at this time. And as far as we can tell, there are still people sheltering in place right now, John hours after this incident Still now waiting for police to clear that entire building, you know, imagine the stress this afternoon. There was a period of time this afternoon about three o'clock where several schools were shut down. Tosa West High School, Whitman Middle School was shut down. There's also in elementary school right in that area, Our Redeemer Lutheran school just right near Mayfair Mall. And all of that was put on Lockdown as police sorted this out, especially once there was word that it was an active situation and that it was still going on. Those those schools were all placed on lockdown. The kids have now been sent home. Lots of cars remain in the parking lot, which is kind of interesting lots of them inside the police tape. They have been allowed. I just heard from a texture to begin to inch their way out. But there are some cars that are completely black by police vehicles don't know when people were able to recover those We're expecting to hear in about 20 minutes. From law enforcement. I presume the Wauwatosa Police department. That's coming your way in about 20 minutes on WTMJ. Let's get out to Debbie Logica again. It's the middle of rush hour, Debbie. How is this impacted the ride and how is the right in general? Well, if the right in general is actually not too bad, this particular situation now that it appears Mayfair Road is open in both directions across from past Mayfair Road. Um, it doesn't seem to be impacting people very much. Here's the thing, though. You don't want to be necessarily going through that area. It trust me. It's just It's the traffic around it heading on highway 100 itself. It's gonna be kind of Ah, nasty ride. So try and avoid that if you can now 41 south, but we do have this accident at Hampton Avenue still being worked on on the left shoulder. Volume is bunched up right past that scene, but it's not too bad. Um, travel times are pretty much gone back to normal at 15 minutes. I wake you to the zoo. The other issue is gonna be our semi that ended up off of the roadway at Elm Road on North found 94. It is on its wheels, so it's not tipped over anything, but it's off into the ditch. Means they're gonna probably need to get a tow truck out there, and it's gonna be one of those big toes, so it's probably going to end up blocking Elaine through there. Just be prepared for that. Something on 43 is nice and quiet, as is North bound and cell phone on the bypass. I'm nebulas ago. Wtmj paella wi dot com Time saver traffic. All right, Thank you. Dub dubs Absolutely right. Stay clear that area That's a busy area. But if you don't need to be in that area don't be in that area. There is a lot a lot a lot of law enforcement activity continuing to go on in that.

There's an exterior entrance that also enters right into the mall. Between Mayfair and Pot bellies, and that's where we've seen the majority of people going in and out. Posted police ambulances, SWAT teams from throughout the area. Continue to come and go from the mall. We don't yet know. I don't think Eric. Do we have any indicator when we might hear from police? No, not at this point and usually Once they have a little bit more of a concrete idea of what they're working with. They might send out a quick tweet with some information. Or maybe say, Hey, we're going to set up a command post into a news conference that you know this time. We're still waiting for that to take place and it has not, And that could be for several different reasons. One is still a fluid situation, too. They're still trying to get all the information they need from those who were involved in the situation. And three. I mean, it could still be active. I mean, what we're told from the mayor there is that they're clearly still working this scene. They're still trying to determine it. Andre from what we can share Just from what we're seeing on some of the monitors we have here, thanks to our partners that teams of four news it does not look as urgent. Around the doorway here leading into the Macy's Now That does not mean anything. That doesn't necessarily mean everything is over or anything like that. We're just telling you what we're seeing here is that there is not this large active Urgent police presence that we can see at this time outside the Macy's interested no detail attached to it. But the FBI is not confirming that there has been a shooting at Mayfair Mall. Not any other detail that we know from the F B, I We know the FBI is indeed on scene.

There were a lot of protests out there before the D A made a decision on whether criminal charges would be filed against Joseph Men said there were protests. There were people that were harassed, trying to eat out there at the restaurants like Cheesecake Factory. There were protests that took place day and night and that the decision came down not to charge Joseph MENSA, and the protests continued their four days where there was a heavy police presence there. At Mayfair, the national Guard was actually called out to Mayfair. To make sure that nothing got out of hand. The shooting took place in February. The protest took place throughout the summer and into the fall. And now today, this and I'm not making a suggestion that the two are related because I have no indicator that the album cold Joseph MENSA shooting is related to what happened today. Today. Another incident at Mayfair Mall or the FBI is confirming that shots were fired at the mall. Our sources telling us that at least seven people Were shot at the mall. He told the mayor saying that yeah, there was a shooting at the mall. There were multiple victims. None of them have life sustaining injuries, according to the mayor, and about Now.

"Fired multiple shots fired at Mayfair Mall sources telling WTMJ news radio that at least seven people have been shot at the mall. A huge police presence as you could imagine. At the mall, multiple jurisdictions on scene, the FBI, the 80 F ambulances have been seen leaving with people loaded in them. With lights and sirens activated and police presence continues to move into the mall, the mayor of what would Tosa Dennis McBride, saying that they were about 75 vehicles there, the mayor saying that multiple people were shot, but that none of the injuries were believed to be life threatening. And the mayor, also saying that the perpetrator remains at large. We're trying to get ahold of the mayor. He's always been a good friend of the show. But as you can imagine, he's got a lot going on. That's good news that none of the life and none of the injuries appear to be according to the mayor, life threatening but not so good that the perpetrator apparently is still at large inside a very large urban mall. The medical examiner's office was not called to Mayfair Mall, which is also good news. We've been asked a few different times about the number of SWAT teams that are still seeing in that area and what they could be doing at this time among You know items that we may not even know about some of their duties, maybe just to clear them all just to get people out of the mall because many of them are in there, either sheltering in place are being told to hide in closets. That's Typical standard protocol. When you have a shooting like this, Yes, and you know there's a lot of that going on. It's a stark reminder of the dangerous world we live in. Especially if you're a law enforcement official when you see all the different jurisdictions descending on the mall. They seem to be focused on the West. Entrances to Macy's. I should say the entrances that face west. They look towards Mayfair Road north End of the Mall that Northwest corner there. That is where the large police presence is right there kind of buy the pot bellies restaurant. There's an exterior entrance that also enters right into the mall. Between Mayfair and Pot bellies, and that's where we've seen the majority of people going in.

And you know, a lot of people have already left or we're trying. You know, they're trying to get some folks out of the mall, and then they have them leave the property. So clearly a busy day at the mall today, one thing that's somewhat unique about Mayfair's. You have a lot of stores that are not attached to the mall that are in that area. You have Crayton barrel You have the container store. There's a cheesecake factory that's separate. So you wonder what is going on in those buildings? If the shooting, in fact took place inside the actual mall itself, so trying to get my bearings here, we're looking at live video coming in. Here's the police presence. If you know where Macy's is Macy's has two sides that really the publican access. There's a side that faces West. In aside that faces north, the police presence.

At that mall. But as of now, I mean, we're seeing folks still going in there. Still, we are still seeing law enforcement going into the mall. So as they go through this process, they're going to be very deliberate. They need to go to every store.

Different units, Boy, the parking lot has been over taken. We do hope to hear from officials coming up here sometime relatively soon. George. Good afternoon. You're with us on WTMJ.

The store is quickly as we could. There were police already there when we got outside. So you were We amazes way? Yes. We heard no shooting. We were in the downstairs the level where the shooting apparently took place, and employees came aboard all to get out. Without hesitation, and we all just left and ran out. Was in a panic or people sprinting out was an orderly where there are a lot of people it was. It was kind of orderly because you know you told that were you know you don't know where to run where to go. So we sort of follow people to make sure we were leaving it right Activists. So not people didn't know where to really go. But they sort of balance each other out the door, so we got out. But we didn't hear any shooting. Always. It was scared of morning from an employee toe fall. Get out, So we did. Hey, George, stay with me for a second. I want to talk through this picture that we're seeing now, someone being wheeled out of Mayfair Mall and into an ambulance. They are alert. They're on an ambulance Gurney being put into the ambulance. I should mention this to this couldn't be considered breaking news from the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner. Whenever the medical examiner is involved, that means of fatality. The Me's office just seconds ago, is tweeting that that is not responding to Mayfair Mall. It is not responding to Mayfair Mall. However, the medical examiner is responding to a homicide of an adult male. Near 48th and Hampton, which is not near Mayfair Mall. The one thing to point out though that's great news, because as of now that means that they're not responding to any fatalities at the mall. Hopefully it stays that way. But as of now, the medical examiner not going to Mayfair. Hey, George. What? What does that do to your psyche? When.

We're seeing some Twitter activity on this is well, people that were in the mall at the time of this, some saying that they heard shots or what they believe were to be shots. Others saying that they've seen people running from the mall. Now, this was a while ago. Now it sounds like according to Eric. They are bringing people out of the mall. We have not heard yet From what we told the police to determine if the scene is secure or not. It meant form all. But we do know that people are coming out of the mall. And if they haven't yet they're going to be taken up.

There is a lot of scanner activity on this right now, and that's one of those things that we are aware of, and we we've heard some of what they're discussing on the scanners, and it's just difficult at this time to go with some of that information, because as we've seen happen before, John and you know These similar stories that we have. Is that the initial scanner reports. Sometimes there are numbers involved. Sometimes those numbers are not accurate and different things like that, So as of now we are awaiting. We're not going to go report on any scanner activity that we're hearing just because it's too fluid. There's just too many different things taking place right now at the mall, you know, obviously one of the major questions at this point as we sit here live at 3 23 is Is this an active shooter situation? Has someone been taken into custody? Is someone still roaming around inside the mall? In addition to the obvious questions, like have someone been injured?

No charges against Wisconsin officer who fatally shot teen
"Charges will be filed against WalMart tells the police officer Joseph MENSA for the fatal shooting of Alvin Cole outside Mayfair Mall last February. Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisum says men says use of deadly force was necessary and that he would not be able to disprove self defense calls Family attorney Kimberly Motley, speaking afterwards that they will continue to fight for a conviction, saying that the shooting was justified. And that's really important because normally for these things if he believes that he will say that Motley also points out an independent investigation into Mensah's three past officer involved shootings should be enough to get him fired. MENSA currently on suspension, protesters were able to get onto the interstate system around the market interchange this evening following word of the MENSA decision W. T. M.

"Shepherd market and you will soon see the graves pop up on the left take a left at the grapes walking North now back to Curzon Street on your left of the C-Max Brothers the red book shop and I'd like you to stop outside Mike's brothers and look across the road across Curzon Street. You will see Heywood Hill on your left and g o f off at the Barber's on your right. The reason for stopping here is that I believe this must be where John le carre has stopped when he was thinking of the scene in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy when George smiling nice Robbie Martin Devon, George Smiley is clearly the colors best known character. He was played by Alec Guinness in the TV series in the 70s and by golly Element in the recent feature film multi Martindale is the drunk who likes a long lunch and is not exactly George Smiley's normal cup of tea and they bump into each other quite accidentally so off smiling is on his way to Heywood Hill Bookshop to sell an old grimmelshausen German novel in German. I think it's the first edition. The reason he's doing this is that his divorce from and lay down Smiley is taking a long time and she seems to have control of the bank accounts. So he's only access to Ready Cash is to start selling off his rare book collection. So here's walked from by Water Street in Chelsea is home through the rain book under his arm and he's about to arrive at Heywood Hill. So I believe he would have either emerged from the archway where you now stand or probably from a long career some street from the west and he's about to walk over towards Heywood Hill to go in and Rowdy comes out of trump as having had his haircut probably had a few bottles of wine already. He shouts at George they have a conversation Rowdy encourages George off to a nice day. Restaurants so that could well have been in Shepherd Market behind you one of the many restaurants that you've seen there. They have a long lunch that goes off into the evening and George Smiley accidentally leaves the rare book in the restaurant and he doesn't collect life until the end of the book. He never made it to Heywood Hill that day and the rest is history as they say he goes on the mole hunt. The rest of the book is quite clearly based on Kim philby. So George never sucked into Heywood Hill Heywood Hill is famous for many reasons. You might be able to see the blue plaque which shows that Nancy mitford worked there one of the famous mitford sisters a famous novelist. And of course the sister of unity home a relationship with that off Hitler and the sister of Diana who married Oswald Mosley. So Heywood Hill has its own literary backstory there. It's cold war and indeed World War II back story and it has a secret place a special place in the stories of John le carre. I suspect John le carre had his hair cut at trumper's and bought a few books in Hayward Hill when he was working at Lincoln field house. Just along the road. This is my favorite song. But on the Walk we're nearly at the end. Now, there's only one official stop left. I like it because I can quite easily imagine than the young John le carre a building up his Archive of scenes and applications ready for his first book of indeed. Tinker Tailor was well into his career, but grimmelshausen Trump has Heywood Hill these places Purdy's appear in many of his works. So take a last look at Hayward. He'll take a look through the window and Mags Brothers, which has some really rare and very valuable items in there and then walk along cars and straight to the East and take a right down Half Moon Street right. Now your walk almost the end of Half Moon Street. Certainly Beyond half way, you will walk past the Hilton keep on the right side the west side of the street so that you can see the Flemings Hotel clearly often been a lot of building work going on here. It's still as the boundary of Shepherd Market is still a very highly sought-after location. You'll see it's a fairly quiet straight, even though you can see Piccadilly running along the end at the South Pole. It's being redeveloped. But Fleming's hotel has been here from very many years. It's nothing to do with Ian Fleming is famous in Espionage circles. The hotel is very nice. We actually did the photoshoot in the bar of that hotel foyer. The first set of spy walks that I did with Airbnb and it's a really nice bar. It's a basement bar and it's called manetta's these are all very interesting things because a basement bar has no windows down there for it was used by a so eight people like they're Atkins to meet her spies her agents and debrief them before they perhaps went off for a longer meeting in one of the flats and officers around Shepherd Market wage. So manetta's was attractive because it had no windows, but what I found when we were doing the photoshoot for the Spy walks was it has no phone reception either. So we had to keep going outside to get the photographers with the signal so we can talk to him. And so I find it interesting that there's a bar with no windows and no cell phone signal where you can meet spies right in the middle of London just off Piccadilly Fleming's hotel is also in dog. Because it was the home of Bertie Wooster and I got the Christy has connections to the hotel as well. They believe it is the model for Bertram's hotel in Agatha Christie. Although other hotels claim that credit as well the likelihood is that as she did stay here when she was in London quite often that at least some elements of this hotel that you're looking at today have made it into her stories as part of Bertram's although I am not a spy writer as such you do find a crossover between mystery stories and spying a lot of spy novels are actually mystery novels that happen to have some Espionage content. If you believe anything on Wikipedia, you will know that bathrooms hotel is popularly believed to have been inspired by Brown's Hotel. However, it's the Oxford dictionary of national biography that suggests Fleming's because Agatha Christie was known to stay at Fleming's Fleming's is one of my fave hotels in this area because it's so little known it's kind of you have to be in a certain group of people to really know about it. They might disagree. It's been there for over a hundred years. I think it's been on this app. Right, since it opened in 1851. It certainly is an old enough building and it looks like could well have been and they really play up on their spy connections. The bar is lovely. It's a really nice place to finish the walk but we never did on the Airbnb walk was actually going for a drink because the cocktails are a little expensive but if you have to budget if you're here traveling to the UK on a holiday, it's definitely worth going in and getting a beer or a cocktail in my office bar in the basement of Fleming's before I had my soe World War Two walk. I also used to talk here about Christina skarbek because she was one of the soe agents that Vera Atkins would have run and probably met in a hotel and the wonderful biography of Christina by Claire male is definitely worth a read I will be reviewing that book The Spy Who Loved by Claire Molly in a future episode of spies of London, but I mention it because this whole War can indeed most of my walks are about a time a period of time when all the spies and agents were men. But talking about soe is a chance to talk about the women because dead Most of the men who were able to were fighting in the regular army navy and Royal Airforce in the second world war. And so the women got left behind they were meant to be making tanks and missiles but some of them especially the foreign with with the people who had left France Eastern Europe in extremely dangerous circumstances wanted to get home and they wanted to get home as quickly as possible and they didn't want to be planting potatoes and people, you know, skarbek who was almost an olympic-level skier was an absolute modern-day hero. She put herself in danger many times and many of their Atkins agents were women many of them were executed by the Germans when they were captured. There is an SLE Memorial in Lambeth and we might cover that in the forthcoming city of London walk Fleming's has that part in the history. It's not near the soe offices, but it off by Vera and others and it does give me a chance to mention that particularly during the war not so much afterwards, but during the war was the first time when women were put into these non-uniformed wage. Dangerous situations pretty much of their own free will in many cases they felt like they had a duty to liberate their own countries, but there were also British women who put themselves forward as well who didn't want to do a safety job. The story of Christina in particular is worth a look Christina died a violent death in London after the war and.

He sent the following letter to me, your dentist McBride of Wauwatosa today, Dear Mayor McBride. I write to you today concerning the deteriorating security and policing in Wauwatosa. The protests, which may have started peacefully have been growing ever more violent and the event Saturday night outside the residence of Officer Joseph Mintz have required a meat require immediate leadership and strong action from you. And the elected leaders of Wauwatosa first allow me to be clear that I am and always will be supportive of American citizens. First Amendment rights, having said that ever since the death of George Flight in Minneapolis and the protests and the protests the incident sparked There has been a push by community leaders throughout the country to weaken, defund and abolish police departments in several cities. Locally, Officer MENSA has become the poster child for this movement due to his three officer involved shooting incidents. Officer MENSA has dedicated his life to protecting our community and has been cleared by the Milwaukee County District attorney's office of two of the three shootings in which he has been involved. The third incident is still under review. Despite the decisions by the Milwaukee County D. A. You're common council passed a resolution calling for the termination of officer menses employment with the Wauwatosa Police Department.

The mass emigration from your city would be devastating to the very fabric of that community. In addition to the detrimental effect it would have on your tax base schools and city sciences.

Desperately Seeking Garifuna
"Roof. How are you? I'm very well. How are you good? I went to the river cafe. I don't know fifteen twenty years ago and it took quite a while to there on the tube from downtown London but it was a marvellous location and a marvelous dinner. But you started really as a a sandwich place. I guess a commissary in your introduction to your new Book Thirty Years River Cafe. The quote is the River Cafe and his clientele are seriously diminishing the tone of area. What do you want to just explain what that meant? When we started the river cafe really it was a site of what used to be An oil refinery in London on the river with votes outside and at my husband who's architect was we were lived in Paris for five years when he was doing the Pompidou Centre. When we came back to London. We wanted to find a place that could be a community so that he could set up his architectural practice again. In place through there was a mix so it was a outside space as I said. We were on the river. They converted these warehouses into rather beautiful studios and offices are picture frames model makers dress designers and always. We always wanted to have a place where people could eat and I was working as a graphic designer. And Ed Always Cook but when the applications came in we thought you know what why are worse than not having a restaurant would be not to have a very good one and I just said I think I'll do it and I'll do with rose gray. Who's an old friend and had also come back from New York? I'm wanting to do something. So the two of US came and looked at the the site and it was tiny. It was enough. Maybe a bar tiny little kitchen and six tables. But the real restriction was that we're only allowed to be open for lunchtime because the neighbors who actually had oil warehouses here up in arms about the idea of a small restaurant so the planners that said we could be open Monday to Friday. We could only be open for lunch and only open to the people who worked and these warehouses. So that's where the sandwich bar. That's where the inexpensive very tiny little place started. But I think Rosen. I always had the ambition to be an Italian restaurant to be a proper restaurant. We just had to do it gradually. Here's a question. Sometimes you just leave something allowed like in your book very often. You don't add a lot of strong. Flavors is something that has a wonderful flavor to begin with you have a Dover Sole Rescue Capers in Marjoram Dover sole is often serve which brown butter and butter something very simple olive oil but capers in March. Very strong flavors is that how do you know as a cook when you? WanNa add strong flavors to something and other times? You don't is that something just whimsical. Or I think it depends. Well first of all depends on your mood. Sometimes I come into the river cafe because you know we changed the menu twice a day and if I have Dover sell on the menu I bite think well what am I going to put with the Dover so I might just put lentils with it today and therefore might like something interesting on the top like capers. I think as a cook the first thing I think about when I write the menu is what what do I feel like eating today. What would I want to eat? And that's one of the joys of working in the river cafe or I think I hope coming here so I think as you know the same thing we say. If you're cooking at home what what do you feel like eating and also not go shopping with a recipe in your head but go to the market. Go to the supermarket go to shop. See what's there and then you know the home and cook you know. A lot of chefs. Do a lot of different things. Jose entrees has twenty three restaurants Jeremiah Tower obviously you know moved around started things enclosed things. You've been doing this thirty years or so. Alice waters has been doing her GIG for forty years. Do you have a feeling about people like yourself who stick with it who start something and just keep getting better at it forces people who move around. Did you think one is better than the other widely? You love for thirty years doing this one thing. It obviously still excites you. By the way you're you're talking about your restaurant that's a good question. I think that it depends for me. It's about ambition and control. You know so I really. I've been asked to other restaurants. I've looked at other sites. We came very close to doing another restaurant. A couple of years ago and Mayfair and I'm always thinking about how to grow how to how to be better and sometimes I think that for me. It's about being better where we are. It's about everyday come in with a set of problems or or thinking about what to cook how to make the restaurant. Beautiful and how to make the waiters more knowledgeable in how to work with the chefs. Who want to learn more about ingredients in how to make our pastry kitchen know. There's so many so many things to do in the restaurant here that would it be possible to do it and have more. Some people really can do it for me. It would be really just so important to know that I if I did another restaurant that it would be as good as this one and this one. Wouldn't you know get less good because I was distracted by another one so I never thought of it as sticking with it because for me I have the best job in the world and I come in and I work with brilliant people and it's exciting

Let's opium of restaurants consultancy districts and sip fork of restaurant experts. Montana Montana fog are co founder of residency. And I met them here at Majoria. Oh studio one to find out. More residents say is an initiative which we have creates it which pass up and coming chef superclubs new concept's any sort of emerging thing and food and beverage or hospitality with vacant spaces basis at the moment across the capital but our ultimate jets viz and beyond and through our combined expertise so it's a residency is a collaboration between between district. which is a property restaurant? consultantcy Montana fog which is a restaurant. Consultancy and through combined expertise we can create pop-ups ups and empty spaces very easily. We have contacts with landlords because district says a property business. A Montana can support the operators on the ground and enable the space for operators to go in and start trading. So how did you find each other. What kind of discussions did you have when this idea was born? Well we've nine furlongs. I have yeah we have. I think we first met when my partner and I were looking to open a restaurant or committed was advising us and thankfully we didn't do the deal not through any issue with Camilla ritual. It was the wrong space the wrong concept at the wrong time which is a restaurant consultant but then we work together on a project for the crown estate and had assault on Heddon street which was ironically the property like you offer done or any love it and synergy edge we and then we came together and they had a site where that essentially the keys are being put through the letterbox in the previous tendency unfortunate made it and they had a site that was fitted the Dow and ready to go and they didn't know what to do with it really they'd been thinking for a long time about how they could launch some finish itself which is something we are seeing from landlords now because if you were wind a few years back when a new site came up with an estate in central London landlords always wanted the latest new concept concept the newest operator and since then has been a few burnt fingers so in terms of pushing brand new concept landlords our little bit more cautious about that mom so they are thinking of ways that they can do that without perhaps taking on a long term risk without of committing so when ten had in st came back to the landlord new I think one of the stories I think sub told me was that they only bought some new carafe when St when and everything else was was there and it's provided a great opportunity to trial the poop concept and so the crown at hired Montana fog and district separately and district in terms of helping helping with some sort of strategic direction but also in terms of doing the licensing making sure that all the documentation and Montana fog to find the operators and support them on the ground from day one so basically what you're doing now you're looking for these spaces and he also looking forward to preneurs budding restos operators. I would like to take over the spaces for some time. What kind of conditions are we talking about? How long would this pop ups for example? And what kind of operators are you looking game for. Exactly it depends side-by-side how long the pop-up lost with Tennessee. I think we are moving into month. Eight seven and Republican another three or four months. We'll see so it depends on the landlord. I mean typically day-old Adage from restaurateurs is once you found this all you want twelve months later you'll open the door was that's how long it takes to sometimes raise the money to get your lease. Signed your heads of terms obviously to fit it out so adama landlord or have an empty site. It could be there for a year before I'm actually GonNa say that open again so we can activate that site pretty much within a week to week turnaround. Make sure it's fit for purpose and get an operator in there. And they could trade their quite happily for four to five months whilst unseen the new incoming operator who takes a full lease is doing doing the negotiations with the landlord. Millennials have let so I activated is very flexible model rarely because some operators will want to go in for four to six months and north of gang of presence in makes him return perhaps but others will perhaps wants to do a supper club or decently much shorter term or might be happy. Just go in somewhere for a week to Derby PR and some of the landlords that we're actually talking about our existing operators already have to activate spaces particularly helium pumps and they could be much shorter. Say It's bespoke and it's flexible. An in terms of your other question of what sort of entrepreneurs are we looking for. The Sky's is the limit. We've had interest from a large very well. Funded American Vegan concept. which is very edgy? We've had interest from people who've superclubs in Hackney these people some of well funded and well back to existing. Operators is the ones that aren't who would have a great concept on great passion Russian but to get in front of a landlord to get a lease for ten to fifteen years. No way you ever going to be up to do that. Unless you've got some very very well funded ended backers of which most people don't because the banks unfortunately won't be lending anyone any money for quite a while for the smaller operations and this gives us the opportunity he to educate the operator in terms of how a landlord works. We should very much district comes and for us the Montana folks of of residency to work with them and help them and with the figures look concept introducing to suppliers etc etc.. Actually so there is a lot of support available when you choose. The operator so veto need to be worried about north knowing everything takes yeah. I think that's our biggest point of difference is it's three hundred. Sixty degree support system. Why there will be people who the first people we've introduced a ten Heddon street with David Carter from smoke stack and Chris Leach who worked at Bratton cooked lots of different places? How much support do they need? Not a great deal to be honest with you because they're incredibly experience but moving forward when we take someone from WHO's done of a food stall pop pop somewhere. They will need to understand how the western works because the West End Actually David. Chris did put their hands up and admit that the learning experience of coming from east blondel shortage into what is basically mayfair. Soho borders different world. Because lunch is a big thing. Lunch makes the difference. It doesn't make you a millionaire China but without lunch you really suffer if you're in the west end but you cost this much higher You've been following London restaurant scene for years. How has it changed changed? And what are your predictions. What is going to be happening in the future and always the landscape changing thing? We've seen this of past. Few years is a huge increase in the number of restaurants in London and this was sort of lead from consumer trend to solve. Eat out more and with the sort of casual dining lining crunch the so called and they changing political landscape confidence decreased and the oversupply of restaurants. Met not this wasn't in any way sustainable stable anymore. So that's when we started to see like restaurants going back to landlords and whilst the market is still very vibrant. There's loads of new. You operators out there that wants to take on site and central London. There's nowhere near as many as there was before and what it's done is created a survival of the fittest backdrop so the good restaurants still still trading while and a very very good and another thing. That's sort of is in between nether is is suffering. We've also seen rents go very very high because of the lack of supply of restaurant

Well, did anybody do a study before? I mean Hank. Right. People weren't driving around smoking and stuff before the law was passed the change in the law. Make it any different. Well, the thing is Bob. Yeah, the, the really the only way the police can tell if you indeed are smoking marijuana is if they smell it on you the rest of the time the rest of the time all they can pop you for is impeded driving, because they're not going to be able to tell if you are on an opioid, or if you're on a if you're on a, you know, a tranquilizer or something like that, if they pull you over for reckless driving.

No. It's like yeah. Well, it just makes it sound like we got drastic changes since it was passed. But, you know it was being done before. It was passed. Yeah, it was it was just the legal. Yes.
