A Tale of Two Noses: More Tall Tales at Wornington Green
As we face the prospect of five days of the Prime Mincer’s smug face in various well-rehearsed poses, we need to address one of the great mysteries of our time.
Why does Cameraman have two noses?
Does he have a jar on his dressing table, Michael Jackson-like, and select one appropriate to his mood? People, please, can we resolve this once and for all this week? Which is his real nose - the aquiline one, or the rather more homely, port-swelled version?
And let us remember these portentous words as he used the royal ‘we’:
"There are deep problems in our society that have been growing for a long time: a decline in responsibility, a rise in selfishness, a growing sense that individual rights come before anything else."
So why, we need to know, does he allow Gideon to show his disdain for his electorate by openly flicking bogeys at public events?
See no evil? KHT blocked the peepholes to the ‘construction site’, or rather, the crime scene where families were threatened with eviction then 48 perfectly good family homes were demolished and half our park ripped up, then left to fester for a year.
This has been done to prevent us from seeing the horrible truth that, despite the ‘Here&Now’ website http://yourhereandnow.co.uk/ joyfully proclaiming that 'Work is now well under way on site and we aim to provide as much information as possible on the development process to ensure you experience as little disruption to your life as possible’ - the only activity behind the hoardings is tumbleweed joylessly tumbling back and forth.
The same website, designed and managed by interestingly-named Philosophy (which has no internet presence, strange to say) has an allegedly ‘out of date’ plan for the route for construction vehicles which has driven near neighbours to state unequivocally that they will lie in the road rather than permit heavy lorries to thunder along narrow streets all day from 7am for 12 years.
So, on one website, one tale ‘somewhat previous’ and another ‘somewhat dated’. None of which bodes well for the ‘open, honest and upfront’ consultation promised by KHT five years ago. Here is the nasty truth behind the hoardings, let’s see how Philosophy try to spin KHT out of this one:
