Andrew – beware…
Could it possibly be the latest of your promises to eat your hat if work begins on the Heart of East Greenwich:
“My wager to eat a hat of your choosing still stands – will the diggers be starting on the site before the 31 March 2012 ?”
be something to do with the letter below) that has gone to (some) residents (thanks T):
Of course ‘towards the end of March’ is still vague, but @Marymills was discussing with a bunch of us on Twitter that the magic date is the 26th, which gives Andrew five days to choose the condiments he would like to accompany the hat.
There is, of course, still time for it all to go pear-shaped – we’ve been here many times before and Andrew’s hat has been safe more times that I would have put my own on the line (I’m rather attached to my tricorn) – but 26th March does actually fall in the foreseeable future. It might just happen this time.
