Here is a further observation of the crassness of the £1 million 'manifestation' in Exhibitionist Rd.
Despite the expensively produced booklets, sent to every household at a cost of £40,000, the several people sitting around attest to the fact it was not really a 'sellout'!!
Could Sir Pooter, hidden in the space suit, be the Sonic Manipulator?....Whoever it was made a lot of incomprehensible and discordant noise.....very much like our Leader.
I went down to the 'modern day Great Exhibition' at around 9.20 this evening. I had intended to pop into the V&A only to find that it was closed. I understand that the original intention was for the V&A and the Science Museum to be open until 10.00 in the evening throughout the Olympics. However because of lack of visitors the Museums decided that it was waste of time opening late; this shows what a complete and utter flop the "Road Show" has been. It has been an utter embarrassment and a failure for the Council. I would go as far as the Road Show is the biggest waste of money (which is easy to identify) attributed to any RBK&C and all those responsible should be ashamed of themselves.
After walking up Exhibition Road earlier this evening at about 6.30, I think the most interesting display is the "The Agreement" which is an agreement between some honey bees and an artist. I was also given a free radio with a commentary called "On Air" about the ambience of the event and what was going on in and around Exhibition Road by Graeme Miller, who describes himself as an artist, composer and theatre maker. In fact all it was was a chat about the various aircraft flying into Heathrow Airport; other than that they hardly spoke about anything of any consequence as far as I can tell.
|HOW YOUR HARD EARNED TAX IS WASTED|
I do not think that I have seen so many security people for so few customers and most, I am afraid to say, were not much interested in the proceedings.
Heads should roll for this and it would be terrific if it could hit the Nationals; maybe with the assistance of the Taxpayers Alliance?
Sir Merrick must be cringing at the thought of the possible damage that this could cause, especially as he presumably supported this farce.
