At a time of economic depression and the approach of war there was a desire for escapism. People enjoyed the pleasures of life during the ‘Jazz Age’. Speed and streamlining became important especially in the new modes of travel such as the first commercial flights, trains such as the Orient Express and ocean-going liners. This page lists some of the Art Deco buildings to be found in London. It is compiled from the Time Out Deco guide but with additions from other sources, recommendations and personal knowledge. I have included a couple of buildings which post-date the period but replicate Art Deco styling. If you know of any good examples that I have not listed I would be interested to hear about them dates and architects would be useful. Please use my Guestbook. An Art Deco trail around some of the buildings is available [ click here ] The buildings listed here plus others have been plotted on a Google Map – thanks to JaneZ [ click here ] There is a Gallery section with photos of some of the buildings featured in this listing marked pix FACTORIES Art Deco was the response to the new needs and new materials of a changing society.

For example, they pretend to be police officers who have just arrested someone using a copy of your bank card and alerting you that your money is in danger, or pretending to be from your phone or computer service provider and claiming that there is a problem with your system that they need to fix. Fraudsters often claim to be officials and can seem very genuine but you should always bear in mind that callers may not be who they claim to be, even if they already seem to know details such as your name and address.
Genuine police or bank staff would never ask you to withdraw or transfer cash from your account, nor would they ever ask for your four-digit bank PIN number. Never tell anyone this number, it is for you to use in cash machines and shops only. Genuine computer firms will not call unexpectedly to help fix your computer. The most common type of fraud affecting older residents in Sussex is “advance fee” fraud, where fraudsters persuade victims to make advance or upfront payments for goods or financial gains that do not then materialise.
Beware of anyone asking for money in advance. For example, fraudsters may claim that you are entitled to PPI compensation or that you are to inherit money from a relative but you need to pay legal or administrative fees first. What can you do to protect yourself? Be sceptical of callers, even those who claim to be officials. NEVER give personal information, such as your date of birth or bank details, to unexpected callers.

Don’t bank with this scoundrel! This forgery carries the name Hamilton Bank. Spot the spelling mistake! In circulation August ‘ If a fake lottery cheque arrives – beware. Do not send money via Western Union or MoneyGram after receiving such a cheque. Remember, it can take more than a month for a foreign cheque to properly clear.

Richard Austen Butler, Baron Butler of Saffron Walden, KG, CH, PC, DL (9 December – 8 March ), generally known as R. A. Butler and familiarly known from his initials as Rab, was a prominent British Conservative politician. The Times obituary called him “the creator of the modern educational system, the key-figure in the revival of post-war Conservatism, arguably the most successful.
That being said, Cameron certainly felt he had little choice over the issue. His attempt to make the Europe question go away by promising a referendum if a UK Government ceded more powers to Brussels did not go far enough for Tory Eurosceptics. Some of those around Mr Cameron — including the Chancellor George Osborne – are understood to have urged him not to go ahead with the pledge warning that it could have disastrous unintended consequences but he thought it was a gamble worth taking.
The main reason is that Mr Cameron thought it would never happen. He calculated that Labour under Ed Miliband would not back the plan and the Lib Dems were passionately opposed. Back in no senior Tory — including Mr Cameron — realistically thought they had a chance of winning an overall majority in and that another Coalition was likely. That being the case, most people believed that the referendum pledge would be the first thing to go in Coalition talks.
And now Britain is poised to leave the EU. And Cameron’s premiership is over. Read the Bloomberg speech in full: A war which saw the streets of European cities strewn with rubble. The skies of London lit by flames night after night. And millions dead across the world in the battle for peace and liberty. It did not happen like a change in the weather.
