Inspect the Plans at Your Convenience

May 6, 2014


The general plan and artist’s impressions are now on display in Kirkgate Market — in the toilets!

You couldn’t make it up, unless you were the writer of The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy:

“But Mr Dent, the plans have been available in the local planning office for the last nine months.”

“Oh yes, well as soon as I heard I went straight round to see them, yesterday afternoon. You hadn’t exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them, had you? I mean, like actually telling anybody or anything.”

“But the plans were on display …”

“On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”

“That’s the display department.”

“With a flashlight.”

“Ah, well the lights had probably gone.”

“So had the stairs.”

“But look, you found the notice didn’t you?”

“Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard’.”

Don’t panic, indeed. Unless you are one of the increasingly marginalised market traders.

    Where are the toilets in the market? Sorry for ignorance – I’ve never been caught short there.

      Turn right off Butchers Row and follow your nose. (The toilets don’t stink but the Council chicanery does.)
