Here's a really weird story. There are some half a century old flats in Glasgow. They've had long history of problems, so for years they've been planned to be demolished. Cue some bright sparks who have decided that to ensure that the Commonwealth ceremony goes with a bang, as a feature of the ceremony they'll blow up these buildings! laugh

Anyone got a problem with that?

Err um yes… it sounds pretty distasteful.

New London has a nice ring to it.

Not really a problem, but it is pretty pathetic if (as I have seen it stated) that the aim is to try and match the Peking and London Olympic fireworks with this idea.
