Blaming the architecture for Crossrail’s delays is moronic and superficial


Calm down Paul! We know who the morons are, and they are everywhere, but we do have to work with them. Often they are good people hamstrung by the organisations they work for? Crossrail will be great, a bit like the new Kings Cross, but en masse? What was the over run or over spend on that job? Perhaps it was on time and on budget? Crossrail 2 will also be good for London and the UK. We need to be diligent and careful all the time. Peoples lives are at risk. Grenfell and it’s aftermath were caused by a whole range of factors, and people paid with their lives, and hopefully we will learn from the lessons this time. Remember Summerland or HAC concrete? We are bloody good at this infrastructure malarkey, and all the other aspects of the built environment. One or two mistakes were made along the way, which have now been amortised. A bit like the Empire?! (I blame Cambridge University and Cecil Rhodes for slavery. Despite being outlawed in the British Empire in 1807, long before he was born.) But that’s another commercial and racial arrangement altogether, and I am not qualified to comment. Enough has been said, and is still being said? A distraction from a real and current danger, Climate Change. And BREXIT Mrs May. And a sainthood and sacking as a reward? Our Lady Annunciata of May?
