Well, they’ve planned for that:
Barnet is set to get £50,000 to decorate town centres in Olympic colours ahead of the London games next August.And where are they getting this largesse?
Is some philanthropic multi-billionaire donating it? Is it coming from the coffers of one of the huge sports tv networks or producers of multi-coloured bumpers that our youth apparently can’t live without?
Nope. It’s coming out of taxes, of course.
Today the Mayor of London announced every borough would be given the cash to decorate “key” areas with flags, banners and bunting to help spread the “look and feel” of the games.How nice of you, Boris!
Mayor Boris Johnson said: “The games are a unique opportunity for London to secure its position for another generation as the best big city in the world.We have a duty? Really? You know where you can stick that, Boris...
“We all have a duty to make the most of this opportunity and I’m determined to ensure every part of the capital gets to benefit and enjoy the games.”
