Ealing and Northfield

Let them eat cake

One of the smaller, but no less important to those living nearby, issues we discussed last night is the 94 bus stands at Acton Green, see Gazette report here and report considered at last night’s cabinet here.

A local resident, a Mr Watson I think, attended to give a first-hand account of the problem and certainly it seems that TfL have increased the service without considering the impact that this is having on residents. My screen grab from Google Street View shows three buses lurking.

Harvey Rose, LibDem group leader and councillor for the Southfield ward where this is happening was fairly relaxed about the whole situation. He said: “Quite a lot has been made of relatively small inconveniences”. It sounded a lot like: “Let them eat cake”.

Heads will roll!
