It was also well played. Rather than just waltzing in and doing it on his first morning, he gave them the carrot of "if you can find the money, feel free" then binned it when they'd hung themselves out to dry.

I see Ms Lumley is ranting about negativity. She's not offering to stump up the £200m, that will be down to people like me and Mattomac...

Interesting article about it here - http://www.lbc.co.uk/hot-topics/garden- ... ge-124786/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

What the hell was Joanna Lumley going on about here when she said:
I think we're going to see such a huge regeneration, particularly on the north bank," she told Theo. "Particularly on this huge and terribly grand area, which has somehow got overlooked by London, which is the south side of the Aldwich, the straight side of the Aldwich, The Strand.
Since when was The Strand either overlooked by London, or in need of regeneration? That is just an absurd thing to say. And the part that is the straight side of the Aldwych leads directly off Waterloo Bridge, putting in another bridge from Temple station would add precisely nothing in terms of incentivising people to go there.

There were some pretty grim concrete buildings round Surrey Street. These have been replaced anyway, I think.

Sure, there are quite a lot of boring office buildings there, and development is also restricted by virtue of the fact that King's College and the LSA are there as well. Having a garden bridge will do precisely nothing to change that state of affairs. East London is in far greater need of both regeneration and more bridges, but of course that is of no interest to Lumley and her developer mates.

Like a few actors she thinks because she's famous she can come out with any old bollocks and be taken seriously.

Nearly all people believe that about themselves, even otherwise very intelligent people. It's just that famous people have a wider audience for their bollocks.

And the media love it. "Joanna Lumley says..." has more traction than "Reg Gubbins, nonentity, says...". And then if it turns out to be unpopular or at odds with the message they want to push, it's "Overpaid luvvie says...". Whatever the case, the space gets filled.
