Tales from the Multiculture - WTF edition
Anyway, the other day as I passed the Woolwich People's Telescreen on my way to the train station, it was showing a Hindi movie, subtitled in English, to a bemused audience of Nigerians.
Now there's diversity, look you.
There is more to come, apparently, including 'a new water feature suitable for children’s play'. I assume this means that, if we get any hot days next summer, pedestrians in Woolwich will feel as confident as pedestrians in Bangkok during Songkhran- perhaps PacaMacs will make a comeback in SE18 when this 'improvement', literally, 'comes on stream'.
BTW the funding for this NuLab nonsense, again according to the Council website, came from the DCLG (Prescott's old fiefdom) & TfL (so the scheme must have been signed off before Boris's axe fell there).
Don't be surprised, Edwin, if next week there's a Nigerian film on, being gawped at distainfully by representatives from Plumstead's Sikh community.
