Traffic across Westminster Bridge was at a standstill this morning thanks to the lane closures and banned turns around Parliament Square.
Agreed. Why have they closed (yes. Closed it. Not made it a Games Lane. Just closed it.) one lane over the bridge? A completely stupid idea, which only pales into insignificance when you see what they've done outside Buck Palace.
The really daft thing is that there's been no indication that any of this was going to happen. I travel on that route every weekday, and there have been no signs with specific details (just the general "Oh, the traffic's going to be all to cock for the games. Visit our stupid website which doesn't really have enough detail to show you anything at all" message that's up all over town).
...if you press it, they will come.
