CAMPAIGN DIARY: Hammersmith Bridge

There are certain topics that are always guaranteed to spark animated conversation. Spiralling commission levels, say, or client ignorance. But the latest hot subject is Hammersmith Bridge.

There are certain topics that are always guaranteed to spark

animated conversation. Spiralling commission levels, say, or client

ignorance. But the latest hot subject is Hammersmith Bridge.



For those who don’t know, the bridge shut down this week for a whole

year. This means that all those rich enough to live in the leafy media

village that is Barnes (Andrew Robertson, Martin Bowley, Nigel Bogle and

Cilla Snowball to name a few) are mightily pissed off.



It spoils all their plans, see. (Snigger.) It means they’ve got to get

up earlier to drop the kids off on the wrong side of the river and, tee

hee, drive all those extra miles along the diversion.



There is hope, however. We’ve been told that buses (you know, those big

things that go slowly and carry more than one person at a time) will be

allowed across for a while, although it will finally be closed to

everything but foot passengers. Snort.
