Scaffolding is Political: It’s Official!
On the day Jeremy Corbyn became Leader of the UK Labour Party, scaffolding turned an unmistakeable shade of red in the heart of deep blue Kensington.
Previously, close observation of scaffolding colour trends in Marylebone, Fitzrovia, and Bloomsbury produced strong evidence that the colour of scaffolding reflects the local politics.
Blue is the dominant colour in Marylebone, while Green is often seen in Fitzrovia.
Some areas, for example Bedford Square and Fitzroy Square, have both green and blue scaffolding. Until today, however, there were no recorded examples of red scaffolding.
It cannot be a coincidence that on the day that Jeremy Corbyn won the Labour leadership contest, scaffolding in conservative Kensington turned Corbyn Red.
Further sightings of red scaffolding will be recorded and shared.
