Finally, in a nod to the social media age, the cafe area has been ringed with a halo of LEDs that spell out words trending on Twitter in London at that moment, along with a screen giving you the lowdown on the city’s emotions. When I visited, Harrow was declared to be the happiest borough, while Haringey was the saddest (perhaps due to the council’s recent decision to flog huge swaths of public property to the private sector.
