Whatever the ins and outs of Lower Marsh
, I'd definitely agree that BIDs (who, if I've read the news article correctly, are the people who've funded this spending) are a waste of money.
The Bankside one seems to be completely random in the scope of what it does, and the frequency of any offerings. I work in another BID in the West End. They appear to spend all their money organising walking tours of the region, and sponsoring foodmarkets in the concourse of one of the nearby office buildings.
QUANGOs gone mad.
...if you press it, they will come.
