Street hero

  • Comment

The big star at the Comedy Store event was Kensington and Chelsea's deputy leader, Cllr Daniel Moylan, who removed the clutter and rails from Kensington High Street, in the process taking a considerable degree of personal responsibility for the consequences. He is also responsible for the Dixon Jones Exhibition Road proposals, cutting out the distinction between pavement and road in the expectation that people, when not nannied, behave responsibly.

Moylan's concern is what happens when complaints about the nanny state meet an ever-expanding compensation culture. At what point will society pull the plug on a legal profession which feeds off people prepared to take risks?
