All the nutty politicians aren’t in the US

Water ?Regulars at a London park have been left bemused by the construction of a fountain with no water.The replica was built to replace the original Victorian water feature in Peckham Rye Park in South London using a £2 million Heritage Lottery Fund grant. But Council officials explained that the pink granite fake copy was not intended to be plugged into the water supply, reports the Daily Mirror.Southwark’s environment chief Lisa Rajan insisted: “The re-creation was never intended as a working fountain. It was designed as a monument to what was originally there in Victorian times, as required by the Heritage Lottery Fund.”But park user Neil Slattery: “I think they’ve missed the point – isn’t the main feature of a fountain supposed to be water? Who on earth would go to all the trouble of putting in a fountain then not having water come out? It absolutely beggars belief – what a waste of money.”
