you're a gas gas gas

and while we're moaning were's my bloomin' gasometers my beautiful back of kings cross ladykillers gasometers my flipping listed gasometers that were somehow allowed to be pulled down and packed up pretending they're going to be put back sometime somewhere probably just as some abominable cladding to some horrible posh flats you bastards ? i despair. i mean everyone loves a gasometer and the one that's left looks all sad and lost and lonely now no-ones waving at it from the rooftops of battlebridge road or having a good old gawp through the camley street nature corner bushes. please mister can we have our gasometers back ?

barbara lewis - don't forget about me

You're right about the flats - that's what happening to the gasometer girders! Gentrification of King's X, blah, blah, blah. New Guardian HQ/St Pancras hotel and Eurostar link is just phase 1. I wonder if Bagley's will be re-installed in phase 2?!
