Well he was still there now too, causing a lot of disruption to both traffic and pedestrians (who are being routed via either St K's dock or past the Tower).
The policeman I spoke to on Friday said that the closure was to prevent him chucking stuff at people, so it was a public safety issue. It seems quite a peaceful (if disruptive) protest, but I suppose they cannot be too careful. On Friday morning they closed the road to traffic but were still allowing pedestrians on the pavement nearest to the Tower.
I don't know if he has been on the news, but there was a picture in The Independent on Saturday.
David Blaine cause minor traffic congestion and got dozens of
messages here. This plum brings traffic to a standstill and hardly
causes a ripple.
Surely the police have a sniper that could pick him off.
If he was doing this by Westminsister Bridge he would be brought
down double quick to avoid inconveniencing MP's.
Yet another pratt causing chaos to us SE1-ers. Why don't they just f OFF and leave us in peace and take their stupid stunts elsewhere?! Excuse my french, but this is getting ridiculous! And yes, why exactly are they closing the bridge????!!! Can't they just let him break his neck when falling from his crane?
Late night posting, but I'm getting bored of re-routing my journey's over London, whatever the so-called 'cause' may be.
I say get down off your crane, idiot, and get to court to fight for your rights, like the rest of us would.
