MPs’ outrage after Charity Commission refuses Garden Bridge investigation


I would disagree that unnecessary cost and debt is "nothing to see", in a country where the development of poverty as a policy outcome is the norm and government is evidently too poor to provide for the basic needs of the electorate in non-Tory areas. The big problem that I have is not only the fiasco, but also the Graylingesque scale of the stupidity of the decision ever to proceed with this idea. The UK did not need London to have another bridge, for any reason. London did not need a bridge in that location, for any reason. The idea of making a bridge with a garden on it is on of the most stupidly unsustainable ideas any one ever had, and the idea that there was some charitable purpose behind this egocentric delusion takes us into the area of farce beyond the public purse paying for Peter Viggers's duck island. When is anyone in the London bubble going to realise that the rest of the country, which is totally under represented in all areas, be it funding, media or culture, really doesn't care what you do or think, other than that you do not waste our resources on your strutting dandification? Please don't prattle on to each other in the press about personalities. Just arrange to give the appropriate people their money back (Proceeds of Crime Legislation would help) and fire all of the incompetents who dreamed this up or let it fester. Have any of these people noticed that we need to provide the poorer on more disadvantaged sectors of our society with adequate housing? Weird idea, I know, but maybe we could do that, as a country, rather than all this ... around?
