Can you still feed the pigeons in the square?

I'm thinking you mean Trafalgar Square.

No, our mayor Ken Livingstone has waged war on the flying rats and made it illegal. although sometimes animal rights protestors will feed the pests on the roads around the squares.

Ken can only ban feeding in the squaare itself, he's also culled, and employed a hawk.

No not bird flu, i think it's been the accumulation of years of bird s**t on Nelson.

It was Ken (Mayor of London) not the Lord Mayor (of the City of London)

I am all for the ban on feeding. I saw the hawk on my last visit and thought it was pretty cool.

In 2001 my ten year old daughter disappeared from the Cafe in the Crypt, St. Martin-in-the-field. Her two worried parents were looking for police help when I found her feeding the pigeons. Feeding pigeons is her favorite London memory.
