London is so fucked up, even a news story about a road closure can be amusing! A block of a major roadway in London will completely close today until at least Thursday, but it is causing more of a ruckus than the upcoming tax hikes!
"I was very encouraged by the response from the committee and other council members who spoke to me," Caranci said.
Well, a name change might confuse quite a few folks coming in from the 401 - Airport Road? Hmmm, that is what it says on the map...Don't forget about the cost of replacing road signs, and also that Airport Road is one of the least attractive roads in London. And, don't forget about this:
And the name "veterans" is also in the mix of four new names on the list of candidate names for the new Oxford Street West bridge.
Contemptible - sounds like the name of the bridge is reserved for someone other than the veterans perhaps...the veterans are being thrown a bone? I am all for recognizing the contributions of the veterans, but this is just shameless politicking for votes. Interesting choice of candidates for the bridge name......
