London Blackfriars station is currently being rebuilt. The new one will have exits on the south side of the river as well as the north, the first station to properly cross the Thames.

It is based on what was originally called St Paul's Railway Bridge, which has its 125th birthday next year. You can see the remains of the original Blackfriars Railway Bridge just to the west of the current bridge and station.

It's time to rebuild that bridge too.

Why? Because that means it will go straight through the offices of the Daily Express, which today has the headline:

One in five British will be ethnics

Even the Daily Mail is not as bad.
