I asked before but you didn’t answer: why do you say the wetlands are not going ahead? Is this official? It was my understanding that would be the last part of the project to be carried out. As you’ll have noticed, there are still some works going on around the park.
I have no doubt they realised that the proposed wetlands would create an even more hazardous risk to the public. They have also spent double the proposed budget on the pond... In Local Government the process is quite simple (I worked for many years in Local Government). You split any project into phases...

Phase 1... What the Officers want

Phase 2... What the Elected Members want.

Phase 3... What the Public want or need.

It is rare for any project to proceed beyond Phase 1.

The infrastructure for the wet woodland is all there - the outflow from the lake was installed some time ago. So the money has been spent already. I don’t see how there would be any safety issues with the wet woodland - it’s very shallow. It was always going to be formed after the lake was filled and settled so I wouldn't be sure it’s not going to happen.

Time will tell. Meanwhile I wonder if anyone knows how the youngster that was rescued and taken away by Air Ambulance has fared. I do hope the child survived the ordeal.

The press are clearly lying to advance their own agenda. I don't know who's behind Kent Live but I'd bet its (one or a combination of) the Russians/EUSSR/George Soros/the Freemasons.

I'm sure I saw Vladimir Putin, Donald Tusk, George Soros and the Duke of Edinburgh together in Nandos last week; which I thought was odd, but it all makes sense now.
