A tip off said that Labour’s Mayoral Candidate Sadiq Khan would be in the Broadway at four this afternoon. I’d not been there since the beginning of the month and it was time I took another look at the Broadway works, two birds with one stone. They appear to be complete for a while at least, another proper pedestrian crossing has been exchanged for one of the take your life in your hands and hope for the best variety.
It was said that Mr. Khan’s visit would not be pre-announced to thwart the efforts of those Tory loons wearing Jeremy Corbyn masks. Does anyone change their vote based on such childish behaviour?
However I think Labour’s candidate found an even better way of thwarting Tory Twits. He didn’t show up, not between 15:45 and 16:20 anyway.
I wondered whether I should have gone to Erith instead to look at the new street market but discovered later that Zac Goldsmith was there looking for support but he too was surrounded by unsavoury people at least one of which was in disguise.
All of the people Zac Goldsmith is addressing are local Conservative Party members. What is the point of that? Maybe he is far too posh for Erith folk. Safer Streets? Turn the lights back on then and don’t remove pedestrian crossings.
