Not content with supporting the closure of Shepherds Bush station earlier this year, the Tory council has consented to closing Wood Lane to northbound traffic.
This severing of a major artery in the north of H&F has caused gridlock in Shepherds Bush for the last week. Ironically this also makes the replacement buses for the station closure worse than useless.
All this to keep the Tories' friends happy at the Westfield development.
PS bets are now off for an October opening of the new development - it will take a miracle for Shepherds Bush to be open again before Christmas.
