When did London stop being cool? One day we have the Swinging Sixties, London eclipses Paris as the centre of fashion and justly claims to have the best Metro in the world. Then suddenly ‘poof,’ a cloud of smoke appears. You are standing in a forest clearing. In front of you is a small brick building.  Inside a man is doing something to a small tablet. He says it is a computer, a library, a gaming console, a TV, a mobile phone… On the screen is a map of the Paris underground railways which have doubled in size.
