When he’s not using taxpayer money to pay for high-ticket lawyers to defend him from bloggers, Red Ken’s always looking for a good time.
What better, then, than to pull out all the stops in 2009 to celebrate 50 years of communist paradise in Cuba?
And it’s going to be an all-out all-city event:
The event, to be staged in 2009, will involve street parties, sports venues and some of London’s leading museums as well as the closure of Trafalgar Square.
Although the Mayor’s office refused to provide budget estimates, it could cost up to £2 million.
Even when Ken says,
“We’ve got the backing of the Cuban government for a massive festival to celebrate 50 years of justice in Cuba,”
one can’t help but realize that
1. the Cuban government’s backing won’t include financing
2. Ken’s idea of “justice” is, in a word, perverse.
However, since the celebration won’t take place for another 2 years, here’s to hoping that by then Cuba will enjoy a free society.
Now, that would be cause to celebrate: I love Trafalgar Square – I might even join in.
