    Don’t go to a Gallery or Art Show as a Concession as 
    A[ Disabled parking no more than 2  at Public Galleries ]. 
    The V&A & Science Museums  has allowed Kensington LA  to reduced theirs by 10 since the had their Call Centres  & new residential precinct that cost billions .They are  no longer the bastions of decency . The Tates & British Museum  too. Often Concessions are over £10  even though may qualify in 3/4 areas.They even allow the Tate Boat to rip off.
     Come the Olympics they will all  have egg on their faces  as nobody wants to resolve.Let alone the Mayoral candidates who cannot be contacted directly.
