The Politics Show today on BBC 1 will carry the report that the Thames Tideway Tunnel, or "super sewer" as it has been dubbed by our Council, has been given the go ahead. The government, the Mayor of London and Thames Water have all given the scheme the go-ahead and work will begin soon.
Given our Council's sometimes rabid opposition to this scheme, this is a major political defeat for them and it will of course be interesting to see how its propaganda-dressed-as-news will report this, if at all.
It is well known that Stephen Greenhalgh is not on speaking terms with Mayor Johnson and they right royally fell out over this issue. It would appear that the Mayor has simply swept our Council aside and pushed the scheme through.
The Council's strategy of blaming Thames Water for everything fell spectacularly apart at this meeting I reported from earlier and the recent Goldhawk Floods of last week were a timely reminder of how desperately our Borough needs to get on top of the flooding problem.
But now that the white flag has been hoisted over Hammersmith Town Hall, what will the next big campaign by the Council be?!
