Mayor of London Boris Johnson is in town today
to open the new college in Erith. It was built remarkably quickly and
welcomed its first students only a few weeks ago.
Council insiders have reported that Boris will also formally open the new council offices in Watling Street too; whether it’s today or not was not made clear.
The new civic offices opened five months ago and the two year refurbishment cost more than twice as much as building the college.
An official opening will present another opportunity to bring in the Tory run bar from Dartford so it is fortunate that the man trap outside the new offices has been filled in.
