Windy city

Wakey wakey RHWL! Crisis! Your work converting the Victorian Finsbury TownHall (opposite the AJ’s HQ) might have seemed fine and dandy when you handed it over at the end of last year, but there’s a problem now and no one appears to be doing anything about it. Yesterday’s gales have knocked one of the building’s minarets off-balance and it seems to be on the brink of falling off. Passers-by and resident dancers could suffer a fatal blow if, as seems likely, it tumbles to earth. Watch out RHWL, Astragal can see the unbalanced bit of Victoriana through his canapé-smeared window… and he might just call the HSE!
