The City of London Corporation uses the rates from The City to pay for Hampstead Heath. Including the swimming ponds. They also now charge for use of the swimming ponds:
“It’s like an iron fist has made its way into the space, it’s more controlled and there’s a barrier of access,” the 21-year-old says. “It’s removed that sacred femininity of the place, the freedom to feel unbothered and unwatched, to connect with nature without any mediation through payment. There’s this harshness about it now.
“It makes me feel sad. It feels painful to think about, but I feel alienated from the space. It really hurts my heart that that’s what’s happened.”
Jeez, get over yourself, Honey.
Now try it again. Other people should be forced, at gunpoint, to pay for your pleasures why?
