Mixed message

Not quite sure what Grant is telling the local voters here:
a) Vote for constancy by re-electing him.
b) Vote for change. (small text in corner)

No wonder the average UK voter is confused.

Wonder what over

I wonder what the scaffold is on strike over? Better conditions - don't like being out in all weathers? Want thicker planks? Shinier poles? Perhaps it is simply tired of being walked over by those higher up?

Mind the Gap

If you have ever visited London, you will know the expression "Mind the Gap"; it is seen and heard at every Tube (metro) and railway station.

Well, you will be pleased to know that London Underground also provide an "Emergency Gap Jumper" at certain stations. This one is a Piccadilly Circus.

Just in case you ever need one ...

I thought it would be fine to let them loose in this huge London shopping mall on their own. After all, what could possibly go wrong?

Never realised they were dangerous

Still you can't be too careful can you?
