The world's oldest public toilet (it's in London!)

Imagine how many normal public loos you could reopen for £300K!? And why go to all that trouble is they're paying an attendent? And what the heck excuse did Visit London Tourist Board have for being there apart from wasting even more public money? The best ones around are the Scottish pubic loos where they have an attendent and you pay about 20p. They're always very clean, no drug dealers or graffiti, never seen any CCTV and no need for very high doors which doesn't sound like a good idea at all. Actually to be honest, if a loo starts advertising all those features, I'd question whether it's in the right place. As for Sir Thomas Crapper - I suspect his name came first...
