Harrisons of Harlesden

If an estate agent was trying to flog Audley Harrison he might describe him as ‘charmingly homespun’ and point to the slogan across the t-shirt he wore as he slunk the slow slink of death into the ring on Saturday. ‘Keep Stonebridge Adventure Playground Open’ it read, a local campaign in an age where local shit is everything. The more uncharitable might say that this initiative is in keeping with Audley’s village approach to the fight, but Nelson Mandela won his freedom long ago and we’re all aware of AIDS these days so a good cause is hard to find. I say fair enough, Audley. The Stonebridge Adventure Playground is one of the few places that Audley doesn’t get beaten up. Apart from that regrettable incident with the little girl and the scramble net.

So this blog is putting its weight behind the campaign, if only to ensure that Harrison’s career didn’t die in vain that night. Plus the playground is only five minutes up the road, so its all cool and local. Not that I’d ever want to go there. I’d rather go to Westfield. But I’ve done some research on the internet, and the playground boasts all sorts of wooden crap that you can clamber on. Which is definitely worth saving.
