In the run up to the London Mayoral Elections this May, how has the pandemic altered the fortunes of, and possible futures for the City? 700,000 people left London last year and many of them say life is vastly better elsewhere. Is it? Are they ever coming back? Could falling rents tempt some to return, or make life in the capital possible for people who’d otherwise ruled it out? Is the trend unique to London, or replicated in big cities across the country, and indeed the world? Is it good news, or a problem?
