Oxford Circus is the area of London where Regent Street intersects Oxford Street. In 2009 a £5m diagonal crossing design was implemented to stop traffic in all directions and allow shoppers to cross diagonally as well as straight ahead.
In homage to the project’s Tokyo-inspired design, London’s Lord Mayor Boris Johnson struck a gong as Japanese musicians played taiko drums to celebrate the opening. That sounds quite the grand occasion, a man with a hairstyle to rival Donald Trump’s hitting a flat metal disc with a mallet. I hope none of my London area followers missed out.
please, please, forgive me, I mean no offence, derision, scorn, satire, mocking, jest, or umbrage but I HAVE TO SHOW YOU THIS MAN’S HAIR OH SWEET BABY JESUS IN A MANGER! He is the Lord Mayor of London! Does he not have a valet? Where in the hell is his valet? Can the Queen not intervene here?
