Why the wine bars of Paternoster Square are running out of customers

Paternoster Square has the appearance of a ghost town. The apparently public square with its monument to the booksellers whose shops perished in the Fire of London, revealed its true colours when it served injunctions on Occupy London. The protesters moved next door to the precincts of St Paul’s and we now see what a guarded public space looks like; sad, empty, without humanity. The contrast with the energy, endeavour and creativity moments away could not be more striking.
