"Come on. It's not as though I am asking you to name a bridge after me or something"Well you know what Danny, I think that's actually a great idea. It's still in the "Approval stage" at Downing Street, but I have set up the following petition.
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to name the proposed Thames Gateway Bridge the Daniel Finkelstein Bridge.I have this feeling it's going to be rejected though.
The proposed bridge in the Thames Gateway connecting Beckton in the north with Thamesmead in the south should be named the "Daniel Finkelstein Bridge" after the eminent political commentator and columnist.
N.B. Just in case someone accuses me of arse licking, read the column first and it will become clear that I'm taking the piss.
