£5,000 a second is a lot to borrow. New Labour did exactly this - but admitted that it was a 'swell ride' while it lasted.
Diane Abbott conceded - "We went to Hackney Fire Station and they played with their hoses as all my men do, but it was nothing compared to our money hose."
New Labour, during their time in office, commissioned Damien Hurst to construct the brand new building (which is shaped like a disabled lesbian ethnic woman orgasming), for a scant £500m - totalling just a few hours of the national debt.
The acrylic splash statues represent the station's aqua-function, apparently.
According to Abbot: "The reason no-one ever gets a job outside parliament is because we don't have a clue how to make money from 'customers'. All I could do is read "Animal Farm" in St James' Park - that's it! - as long as I can still walk there!"
