'Very angry' Khan hits back at Garden Bridge Trust


What is wrong with vanity projects in a great city like London? Much of what we admire in the capital could have been thus categorized when designed. The real failure of imagination is on the part of an incoming Mayor (determined to rubbish his predecessor's initiatives) unable or unwilling to devise a way of funding the project. We haven't waste hundreds of millions of pounds on cycle super-highways because they have been built. We have, however, wasted £50 million on the Garden Bridge because we aren't building it. Comparisons with Grenfell Tower are disgusting, but not untypical of the angry brigade who have launched their exocets at the bridge from the outset. Slightly embarrassing when they are bridge designers themselves, and might be thought to have a conflict of interest.
