This is an interesting development.
It seems we in Britain after the success
of the London 2012 Olympics have
found a new thirst for entertainment
and cultural Projects. I am not saying
we ever lacked such creativity
and ability to put on a good show
however with our new found confidence it seems that there is
nothing holding us back.
This proposed project is yet another
example of the grand ideas that are
currently on the cards. We have had
some wonderful architectural changes
in the city what with the Shard, the
Leadenhall Building, Paddington
Central and many more.
There is a trend developing that is
seeing our creativity being let loose
in a way never seen before in my
lifetime at least.
In the case of this proposed theme
park as with the Thames Garden
Bridge I hope that they come to fruition. We need more of these
kind of big projects to sustain our appeal as a destination worthy
of coming to visit. Not to mention
its time we looked to the future
with wonder and excitement at
all the possibilities.
At the risk of sounding like a
quote from one of Dave Gorman's
found poem excerpts "I for one wholeheartedly approve of
developments that mix business
I thank you!
