There was an announcement when I was in Westminster tube yesterday that Blackfriars station is closed until 'late 2011' for 'major improvement works'. How 'silly', I thought. Surely a major improvement after being closed for two years is simply being open? Perhaps they're not doing any work to the place - 1) no-one will remember what it looked like, 2) they'll just be so gosh-darned happy to have the wee place back again.
I mean really, what works are possibly going to take nigh on three years to get done? If it was Changing Rooms they would have been able to do it in two days - AND it would have been decked out in a charming mock regency theme.
