The secret of cool

What does the hq of Cool Britannia have in common with the intelligence services? Anonymity and security, Astragal can divulge. A colleague who visited the offices of the New Millennium Experience Company at 110 Buckingham Palace Road was surprised to find that its presence in a nondescript modern office block, opposite Victoria coach station, was unannounced. While sitting in reception, nature called and he asked to use the facilities. These are less than six metres from where he was standing, but he had to be escorted through three locked doors, operated by swipe card, to reach his destination. And then escorted back again. Scary.
