Irony shortfall

  • Comment

Prince Charles is back in action, having a go at tall buildings. At least he is according to the Sunday Times.It published a photo of the Heron Tower, which is not mentioned in the story, but that is journalism these days. The Prince is disturbed by the idea that the Bishopsgate Goods Yard is to be a site for glass towers, preferring the idea of a Covent Garden-style redevelopment. What on earth would he have said about the railway when it was first built? A monstrous carbuncle on the face of a traditional East End slum, perhaps. His sidekick, Prince's Foundation chief David Lunts, joined in the fun, questioning whether the City should be a gated enclave (nobody says it should). If it were, of course, the Royal Family would feel quite at home.
