A pile of scrap metal on Nowhere Island - London's Olympics typified


Nowhereisland

Orbit, a twisted pile of apparently scrap metal bits!
Also going nowhere!

Politicians of the three main political parties in Britain have all presumably had their input into how they wish the London Olympics to represent our Capital and the nation for which it stands.

What a fascinating insight to their minds and inner thoughts, this pile of scrap metal, "Orbit" (seen at its most grotesque, behind the shoulders of the BBC announcers from their Olympic Studio,) combined with the absurd "Nowhereisland" due to be towed from Weymouth to Exmouth, the town of my birth, sixty-eight years ago today, together brilliantly exemplifying what these three political parties have achieved during those years!

The only thing missing is a symbol for the crass commercialism and greed that will once again now be set loose!

Actually ZeroHedge has some pretty good ones on there this morning.

I quite like the Fraudlympics and the giant burger building

This from the BBC

'The design of the Orbit has split opinions since its inception at a chance meeting between London Mayor Boris Johnson and steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal in a cloakroom at the 2009 World Economic Forum in Davos'.

They are charging £15 to go in the lift and you can to walk down. They should have made it into a real helter skelter. It would have been more fun and perhaps worth the fee.

Well for something conceived in a toilet by two power crazed men what can you expect?

I think that the Orbit looks cool. I might pay to walk through it.
