Year Zero is 2012 (tm). In Stratford, plans are being set in train to change the environment. Dean, whose family has sold flowers for several generations, is fighting for his pitch outside Statford Station. He told me that he has to bid for a new "unit" and he thinks that he may not be successful. The alternative is a site some distance from the station (and therefore from the entrance to Westfield).
The London Borough of Newham seems to want to start from 2012 as Year Zero. That is the same London Borough of Newham which does have a single museum in the borough. And the Local Archives have recent had staff reduced.
