Libraries, grade II listed buildings? Bulldoze them all.

Fury as bulldozers move in for historic Brent home - Harrow Observer

The arsonists have won. Brent can't restore the house, so they've started to bulldoze it. If Mark Twain were to return to London he would be amazed to find that we can no longer afford to have a library in Kensal Rise and we cannot afford to maintain the house where he stayed, which he described as a little bit of paradise. His general impression therefore might be of this as a time of great poverty, compared to the year 1900.
