Chancellor urged mayor to fund Garden Bridge


The more we learn the foggier it gets. Why is the Chancellor so keen to use public money to bring into being an artefact that exists purely for its own sake and lacks any architectural or social merit? Normally a hard-headed man, has he been mesmerised by his childhood memories of fairytale castles? Or is something else going on? Whatever the thinking - and I'm intrigued to know what it really is - could this profligate use of public funds be a matter for the Public Accounts committee?
