Trashing Lloyd's

Channel 4 is inviting viewers to vote for the country's "most vile" building. The most hated buildings will then be razed and rebuilt in an effort to remove structures that "blight people's lives".

Backchat hears that wags in the London market are attempting to whip up support to get the Lloyd's building 'X listed' for destruction.

While disgruntled Names may rush to cast their vote as a way to vent their anger, it seems unlikely that the building would be pulled down.

The building's owners must first agree to the destruction. And Commerzbank, the building's recent purchaser, is hardly likely to give its consent having just splashed out £231m for it.
