Firstly, my bad. I didn’t look (or rather, think) properly about the date that Sideways quoted. My mistake was in assuming that he was competent in basic arithmetic.

Of course, in reality, December 2015 to August 2018 is 32 months - not the 44 that Sideways claimed. Therein lies the source of the confusion and the reason for the raspberry.

And just on a point of order.....one never needs an excuse to blow a raspberry. Especially not at Sideways.

On which note, off topic but a classic nevertheless:

And thus you fell into my cunning trap. Or something

The snow has stopped now, just plenty of water on the floor...

Not keen on the glass. Looks stale like Wembley.

It's been pretty cold lately so it really should have stayed fresh. If I were Mace I'd be getting straight on to whatever dairy flogged it to them!

It does at the moment because it's just one dimensional. Once the various different layers are on it'll look much less flat.

Much, if not most, of that glass will be covered by the perforated aluminium cladding as it swoops down, across and up the facade. So it will likely look very different when all is complete. Not to mention that it could do with a good clean once construction is complete.

This video shows some progress on the station, the video was taken just before Christmas. Skip to 13:08 for WHL station.
