Really? I figured they might be just about on track to have some of it ready for the Olympics. Wasn't that the aim? How annoying.

The brick wall looks amazing! A very nice touch, fits in well with buildings next to it, and I love the contrast between the red brick wall and the very white steel of the Shard.

Maybe they should have ditched that huge blank brick wall, surely that can't be it? there has to be more to come...?


Maybe a better artist should draw a picture of a graffiti artist trying to make some sort of simplistic artistic political statement on a wall and draw a massive **** on his head!
