The City of Westminster (c-enEn-uk-LBWestminster is a London borough occupying much of the central area of London, England, including most of the West End. It is located to the west of and adjoining the ancient City of London, directly to the east of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea , and its southern boundary is the River Thames. It is an Inner London borough and was created in 1965 when Greater London was established. At its creation Westminster was awarded city status, which had been previously held by the smaller Metropolitan Borough of Westminster. Aside from a number of large parks and open spaces, the density of the district is high. Many sites thought of as being in London are actually in Westminster, including Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, and 10 Downing Street. The city is divided into a number of localities including the ancient political district of Westminster around the Palace of Westminster; the shopping areas around Oxford Street, Regent Street, Piccadilly and Bond Street; and the night time entertainment district of Soho. Much of the city is residential, and in 2008 it was estimated to have a population of 236,000. The local authority is Westminster City Council.

The City of London - Money and Power 1 of 2 - BBC Documentary , recorded 19.02.2011 Today I watched a Documentary on BBC. Title: The City of London: Money & Power Salient Features Narrated were: 1) London City is Run by and belongs to Bankers and Merchants. 2) It is separated from the Royal Territory by a Pillar with a dragon on it. 3) Even the Queen must ask permission to enter that territory. 4) The Royalty borrow Money for their Rule or Conquests from the Merchants. 5) It is a symbiotic relationship. Merchants need the Royalty to mesmerize the people and keep them hoping. 6) The City runs on Greed, Gambling and Competition. 7) Financial weapons of mass destruction are created, accepted and used. 8) You Come to the City to Live by the sword and die by the sword. 9) If you Lose, there is a door, you can Leave. 10) This is the way it has been for Centuries and will always be. I was perplexed by this Blatant Narration. This is the same pattern copied all over the world after 1945 and the British Colonial Rule. That is why there are many riots - People are rioting against a System they did not think will come into existence over time and by stealth. (From David Icke Webpage with thanks, see )

The City of Westminster College, London, wanted a short film that showed off their new college building. Additionally they required the film to be treated in a manner that would appeal to the students as much as anyone else.
