I spotted a gate today. It was totally pointless.
Now, I am not one to use metaphors to bring meaning to things like some sort of metaphor user bringing meaning to things.
But if I was...
A pointless gate could either be:
Something that promises exclusive access and influence but ultimately just stands there looking hopeless and hapless.
Something that promises security and support but ultimately just stands there looking hopeless and hapless.
So, send me your pictures of pointless gates and I will publish them on the blog. If I get enough I may even devote a whole new blog to it (subject to the launch of a Commission (chaired by me) to explore the possibility of launching a consultation, or listening exercise as I believe they are now called, on doing so).
