    Favelado Half to the Tower, please.

    I was reading about how desperate they are for funds to save it just 2 days' ago. If they can limit the damage in this fire, and I realise how big an if that might be, it could end up being a strangely serendipitous event, prompting the type of state aid and fundraising for a proper restoration.

    planetgeli There's no future in England's dreaming

    A suspiciously strangely serendipitous event :hmm: if we want to get truly alliterative about it.

    But no. Fucking terrible. :(

    Edit “potentially linked to renovation work”. How’s that for irony.
