Well, that was eventful wasn’t it? Did you see it. Did you get down there and watch it or bask in the wall to wall coverage on BBC?
I took the opportunity to have a bit of a run and see what I could see. In then end, the answer was not much. Apart from this bloke.
It did seem completely inconceivable how much of London shut down. I don’t know about you, but if you’re shutting down that many roads, I want a bit more for my money. I want carnival floats and big people dancing around with papier mache heads; I want a number of designated stops along the route where children from local schools play out scenes from Maggie’s life, including a moving scene where Maggie (played by Jennifer Jones from 5G) and Arthur Scargill (Mohammad al Saddiqi) sing “Don’t go breaking my heart”; I want whistle blowing and men dressed as women.
I did manage to run down a traffic-less Kingsway and Aldwych though, so it’s not all bad. W
