Melissa, I agree. Sure, he's definitely not good in front of a camera fielding questions from left field, or even reading a speech, but the man isn't an idiot. He's just poorly misspoken, and unfortunately, you combine that with the WMD blunder, and all of a sudden, he's the worst president ever.
As far as the Bank of London theory, I'd have to learn more about that. Any links you can provide, Raven?
It is often referred to as the City or the Square Mile, as it is almost one square mile (2.6 km²) in area. These terms are also often used as metonyms for the United Kingdom's financial services industry, which is principally based there.
The City of London has been administered separately since 886, when Alfred the Great appointed his son-in-law Earl Æthelred of Mercia as Governor of London. Alfred made sure that there was suitable accommodation for merchants from northwest Europe, which was then extended to traders from the Baltic and Italy.
