We have some family over from the USA. As a day out on Saturday we took them on a trip which included a guided tour around the Palace of Westminster.
As it was so hot, all of our group were wearing hats. When we got into the palace we were pounced on by some 'jobsworth' who demanded that our headgear was removed. Had he just said that this is a Royal Palace and would we please remove our hats, then we would happily of acquiesced. His whole attitude, however was aggressive to the point of scaring the youngest member of our party, a little 6 year old girl.
It's about time that these trumped up little twerps realised that their job is to assist members of the public and not bully them.
Whilst I am on about this, has anybody seen the accumulation of rubbish overflowing the bins at Westminster Pier - it is appalling
