ASTRAGAL

Those of a boozy disposition will rue the day Corporation of London planners decided to get on their case. At a meeting in December, one council official raised concerns that a planning application to create a new bar on Cannon Street would cause problems for recovering alcoholics - Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are held in the nearby Church of St Mary Abchurch. The official's objection was that the sight of City traders spilling Bellinis down their designer shirts outside might be too much for any recovering alcoholics leaving the get-togethers. As it was felt that this objection would have ramifications for future planning decisions, it was ignored. As far as alcoholics are concerned, willpower is clearly the key.
