Keep Calm and Carry On Demolishing the Local Landmarks: the Bintree and Twyford Village Hall

Village halls always feel anachronistic to me, harking back as they do to notions of nationality and community that barely seems relevant these days. Although, in the current climate - a visual hyper-patriotism on the eve of the Jubilee, the Olympics, Euro 2012, with British flags and 'Keep Calm and Carry On' merchandise plastered across everything - the image of tea and cake at the traditional village hall summer fete feels bafflingly 'in.' No small poetry in the image of a pair of Union Jack underpants dumped behind the to-be-demolished Bintree and Twyford Village Hall, then.
