Anyone know what is currently on the roundabout by the Birds Nest? I have driven past and seen what looks like an artwork. Some kind of human figures and a placard kind of thing. I haven't had a chance to see it properly.

I went past it today. I assumed it was something to do with Halloween, and paid it no attention.

I've just started reading Carl Neville's Resolution Way, a dystopian portrayal of a near future Deptford (and environs).
Check it out: ‘In 20 years Inner London may really be like Paris, a wealthy centre surrounded by racialised poverty’
not an entirely new point, tbh, the logical conclusion of the trend ruth glass identified in the 1960s. see e.g. Is London becoming more like Paris? - FT.com and darren johnson Johnson warns London becoming like Paris | Housing Excellence
