Then more yellow came along. This view reminds me of New York harbour more and more - so when I see three yellow barges being pulled along with the Docklands towers as a backdrop I get a little bit excited.
|I find this building fascinating too|

fascist coup d'état, who have made Philip K. Dick, Ridley Scott's,
dystopian "Blade Runner" nightmare a reality. This is only the
beginning. Every aspect of human activity/endeavour will be
privatized. Government pronouncements are being disseminated by the
department of "Newspeak" and will mean precisely the opposite of what
A comprehensive media blackout will be imposed both voluntarily and
through coercion. Dissent particularly against the NHS "reforms" and
the deregulation and removal of powers from environment agency(s) will
go (under)unreported by national media and the BBC which is now an arm
of government propaganda.
The privatisation of the NHS is underway. Then the roads,
police/pathology units, post office. Whole swathes of the Welfare
State. Higher education. deregulation of employment rights and the
withdrawal of legal aid, health and safety. Tenancy rights will be
revoked or minimised. Attacks/exploitation against public sector
workers, the unions, the poor, disabled, unemployed, homeless, those
on low incomes, the old, will increase in ferocity. Class war by the
rich one percent - subsidising their debt/taxes - against the rest of
the population has become an acceptable part of Tory/LibDem doctrine.
"In accordance to the principles of doublethink, it does not matter if
the war is not real, or when it is, that victory is not possible. The
war is not meant to be won. It is meant to be continuous. The
essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of
human labour. A hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of
poverty and ignorance. In principle, the war effort is always planned
to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the
ruling group against its own subjects, and its object is not victory
over Eurasia or Eastasia, but to keep the very structure of society
George Orwell 1984
This is not science fiction. We the citizens are sleep walking into a
nightmare made real by this Coalition government.

This, with removing environmental regulations and planning regulations should help boost profit while forcing the poor to live with air pollution and on contaminated land.
People make really moronic statements on websites such as the Guardian's CiF such as - oh rich people don't suffer from air pollution then? Well not if they live away from the source they don't, no! Rich people can afford to choose where they live, poor people can't.The areas where air pollution is low will become more valuable, more expensive. Eventually it will be the poor suffering while the rich takes the profits. it was thus in the 18th and 19th century and it will be thus again. soon.
A privatised health service will make the gap between rich and poor even more obvious while the rich can have expensive treatments to mitigate their pollution related illensses - theones that have them - the poor will not, will become chronically ill and will probably die. This suits Cameron's friends - better they die than they become a burden on "society", by "society" I mean nice rich people, not nasty poor smelly people!
Ironic that it's the tories who have decided they want to make the UK as much like China as possible.
