Laurence Fox saw red over London’s Pride traffic lights and the takedowns were absolutely fabulous
Back in 2016, Transport for London joined in with the Pride celebrations by changing the images on the green part of some traffic lights to ones more fitting for the occasion than a lone stick person.

Here are the six designs included on the fifty or so lights in the Trafalgar Square area.
In fact, the lights were so popular that they’ve been in place ever since.
However, it seems that they’re not popular with everyone, because failed London mayoral candidate, Laurence Fox tweeted this.
Perhaps he doesn’t see colours. Tweeters had a lot to say about his latest outburst, and these are something to be proud of.
hi it's me, a 43-year-old man who is mad at a traffic light, to the point I'm not even crossing the road, despite needing to cross it, such is my rage https://t.co/97Ja90GdcX

Bored at home, looking for something else to moan about, Laurence suddenly remembers 'Yes! Those lights they put in Trafalgar Square fucking years ago!' and orders himself an Uber to take a photo. Another successful day on the grift. https://t.co/XqYqM3Djtu
