  • ian meyer – “The best place to look down downing street is not actually at the gate on whitehall, which is where all the tourist stand. Take a tip from me because the best place to stand is at the other end of downing street, which is in st. James's park. You can stand at that end and see more of the street. I found this out some weeks ago when everything was going on about who was going to join with who, in the coalition. There was lots of to-ing and fro-ing from the politicians, and I got a great view”
  • DON – “I am old enough to remember th 60s, when you could actually walk down downing street past the black door. But now it has been gated off at both ends so the best you can do is try and peer through the gate and try and see the politicians as they get into their black limosines. It's not quite the same. But downing street was never very impressive anyway. It is just a normal street. There are far more impressive streets just a short walk away -- like the next road along, king charles street. Now that is a street worth visiting!”
  • exile – “I walked odown whitehall just to have a look and there was nothing there, just a big gate with some policeman standing behind. I tried to peer over their shoulders but I didnt really know what I was looking for. I saw two business men standing around talking outside one of the buildings and wondered if they were famous politicians. They might have been, but I didnt have a clue. I know what the prime minister looks like but didnt see him. You can't really see much through the gate, so unless they happen to open it up while you are there so they can drive out it's a waste of time.”
