There are currently two properties for sale in Connaught Square at an asking price of around £6.5 million,
which will come as welcome news to the upwardly mobile couple who purchased their first Marylebone
lean-to for half that price eight years ago.
To put that £6.5 million figure in perspective. It represents an indecent profit for the adorable couple, and
(depending on which sources you believe) between twelve to thirty six months worth of armed protection
to keep the neighbour from hell safe from unwanted attention. It is a dichotomy. Both for hard working
taxpayers who would like to see an [alleged] war criminal held to account, and the Metropolitan Police
who have to keep valuable resource stationed outside an [alleged] war profiteerís front door twenty four
hours a day to deter any attempts at making a citizenís arrest.
From Merseyside to Marylebone. From Rags to Riches. It is precisely the model of Social Mobility which
New Labour socialists set out to create - and who cares if one persons fortune might be built upon other
peoples misfortune - particularly when Britain is a land of opportunity for anyone with aspirations to get
ahead. Whatever the cost.

The beloved used to live round the corner from Connaught Square (not in a £1M+ property) and I know the area fairly well. From a security point of view I cannot fathom why the Blairs chose to buy in an area that is effectively a 'little Arabia'.

Mrs Blair, a QC and mother of four, criticised women who “put all their effort into their children” instead of working. Mothers who go out to work are setting a better example for their children, she said.

Addressing a gathering of “powerful” women at one of London’s most expensive hotels, Mrs Blair said she was worried that today’s young women are turning their backs on the feminism of their mothers’ generation.
Some women know regard motherhood as an acceptable alternative to a career, Mrs Blair said. Instead, women should strive for both.
Give the audience what they want. Apart from a baby.
I'd imagine that both parents working is probably what is fcuking the country right up. I don't beleive it should be the Mum staying behind neccesarily, but one should. And we shouldn't have a society in which both parents have to work in order for the family to thrive...

Typical, do both & do neither wellTo eat well in England one must have breakfast three times a day
London: its "buzz" and "vibrancy"... can be codewords for drugs, late-night noise and multi-culturalism run (literally) riot.
