Idol has Feet of Clay
Plans to build a 130 metre-high wind turbine to provide 5% of the energy needed to run the Olympic park have been scrapped, according to the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA).
Dubbed the Angel of Leyton, the turbine had been hailed as a green beacon. It was said to be key to the ODA's commitment to deliver 20% of the park's legacy energy needs from renewable sources from 2014 onwards.
The scheme, however, is "no longer feasible"..it cannot comply with new health and safety regulations by games' opening.
No Whirligig? It is like Nuremberg without an Eagle. Toppled by Health and Safety, what symbol will now represent the oppressive fatuous vacuity of the Olympics?
