Coinciding with Debate London, The Evening Standard put together a poll asking almost 2000 Londoners about prominent issues facing life in the city. The results were released earlier this week, and on Monday Channel 4 published an article distilling some of the figures. The main focus seems to be on the overwhelming consensus that London is becoming a city for the rich.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the report also highlights differences of opinion across age groups, with younger citizens more likely planning to live in at least one other city, more likely to see London catering to wealthy, and more likely to value the Gherkin as a landmark on equal footing with St. Pauls. Ironically, while young people more readily imagine moving out one day, they also are more likely to say they want to live in London rather than have to.
