Except that last year it sort of did happen, just in a different way...

Well that will save an enormous amount of pollution raining down on Central London anyway

Quoting from the article:

"Plans for a separate event to welcome in the new year in Trafalgar Square are under way, with more details to be revealed “in due course”."

I hope to God that whatever they plan is better than the rugby scrum-esque Trafalgar Square NYE celebrations of days of old. I went once, and vowed never to go again.

If NYE celebrations are organised for T Sq this year it's bound to be better than previous years which were very unofficial and generally discouraged by the authorities!

I think they had to do something last ear, as they'd already paid for the fireworks - that and the fact that they probably can't afford it this year.
