Without fuss last week, the City of London's 'restraint cordon' was expanded by 40%. After a 12 month trial, St Paul's, the Barbican and Bart's Hospital are in, giving them extra security and pedestrian safety and gaining goodwill from local businesses and residents. More significantly, Islington, Hackney and Tower Hamlets are sold on the merits of the cordon and will soon add a further northern chunk to the enclave.
