The goal is to have it externally complete by the time of the Olympics but never to have it as a fully functional building. They knew that was impossible.

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!
