Mind the lack of progress

While visiting London this Easter, it occurred to me that the stock phrase "Mind the gap", so well-known as typically London for decades, is actually an embarrassing admission of guilt: in all those decades, nobody ever came up with a way to fix the gap? It's a bit silly that a city's international motto signifies the town's glaring incompetence.
Other than that, I had a pukka time.
