I’ve been watching the progress of the work they’ve been doing in the park on the way to the station every morning. I first noticed it when they started off in fine style by chopping down half the trees around the sports pitch, presumably because they were in the way. So I was happy to see this morning that they were now replacing the murdered trees with nice shiny new ones, although I would have preferred it if they could have just left the trees where they were in the first place and worked around them.
But there you have it, landscaping Lambeth style:
1. Chop down all the trees
2. Resurface sports pitch
3. Plant new trees.
Does this remind you of anything? How about:
1. Build enormous speed bump
2. Repair enormous speed bump
3. Remove enormous speed bump
The year-end-spend is a wonderful thing …
