get ready for another low dishonest decade

Great rant at Kosmograd against Kirstie Allsopp and much more economic-aesthetic crappery. I recall her grinning chops advertising some sort of Sink Your Life Savings And More In Bulgarian Property for Riches! fest on Tube hoardings in the winter of 2007-2008, which must take some sort of award for televisual irresponsibility. Swinging from branch to branch, what do I find but this?

Prince Charles made a fire station It appears that the heir to the throne has been playing with AutoCAD, and he made a fire station. I haven't yet decided which bits of this I find most horrible, but I think the fact that the actual fire station sticking out of the back looks like any other one in Britain is a candidate. The black guttering is pretty bad, and is that a CCTV camera on the corner of the building? I rather think it is.

You realise he's going to be king when Dave from PR is prime minister?

Looks like a Lego construction. But re your other point, don't underestimate the longevity of Liz. She looks good for another decade, I'd say.

The most annoying thing is that there's a perfectly good traditional British vernacular for building things like that, but Charlie is in the vanguard of this cargo cult radical nostalgia gang who are capable of recreating but not understanding.

No weathervane?
It would be massively improved with a big swivelling cock on top.
