I know it's a simplistic comparison to make, but contrast that with the £63 million so readily pledged to the bridge by TfL, Citi Bank and the Treasury. I imagine the bridge environment may well be lovely and views fab, but there is no well defined need for it and there will always be more deserving and valuable projects than this ego trip. Of course Boris loves it; it's a great opportunity for (more)self-publicity.
