A Lib Dem clock on the Leas?

Michelle and I spotted a brand new clock on the Leas today.  We were a bit puzzled at first, but then I realised it was a subtle statement.  A farewell memorial, perhaps, to the Lib Dems, who have lost all their seats in Shepway after the recent local Elections and Alternative Vote referendum. 


At first glance, the clock looks OK,  but a bit too modern and out of place in a town full of Edwardian and Victorian architecture. But look a bit closer.  On a second look you realise that things aren't quite what they seem.  The clock:-
  • Despite appearances, is fundamentally flawed
  • It can't be right no matter how people try to tell you differently
  • It is missing some essential features 
  • It has no useful functions and
  • Very limited ornamental appeal
  • Looks like you could spend a penny in it, but don't be fooled.  It is closed and inaccessible like our public lavatories were when the Lib Dems controlled the Council.
  • It will always be confused and
  • Not fit for Purpose and 
  • Quite out of touch with reality.
You could almost feel sorry for it.  Almost.


The correct time as recorded in the camera's exif data was 13h24 instead of 18h33 as it is in the photo. 

Bye bye, Lib Dems.  Shepway will remember your works for decades to come.
