The pedestrian congestion on the Bridge really is a nightmare at the moment, and a danger to cyclists trying to cross the bridge, but the Poppy installation is jolly good and a wonderful remembrance ceremony.
I haven't been in about a month but I was there in the early evening.
A beefeater on the West side of the Tower was reading out the names of the fallen and their regiments and then a trumpeter played the Last Post.
It was very moving.
That arsehole in the Guardian today should be ashamed of himself, he clearly hadn't bothered to go and see that bit before slagging the whole thing off.
Re The Guardian article: I agree, what a malicious, arrogant and patronising article. I went to see the poppies right at the start of the project and I was moved by it. I think it's great so many people go and see it, at least it's relevant and respectful, unlike the London Dungeon
and all that rubbish.
