London Assembly Staff Finally Move into City Hall… Immediately Wish They Hadn’t mdi-fullscreen

In January, London’s new City Hall opened for the first time after 20 years in the famous glass gonad by Tower Bridge. Unfortunately it was only open for a few hours to host Mayor’s Question Time before shutting again to allow builders to get on and finish the thing. Two months on and yesterday saw City Hall staff officially move into the new building. It didn’t go well…

According to one source, the hurdles endured by staff on their first ‘full day’ included:

  • A power cut
  • Missing passes
  • Staff being told they can’t use the front door so being redirected to a hidden back entrance
  • An evacuation
  • A flooded bathroom
  • Subsequently no power to the bathroom block
  • Light sensors in the wrong places
  • Two committee rooms out of use
  • Various builders still around the building
  • A massive crack in a pane of glass

Perfectly suited for East London…
