BoJo's pet Olympic projects seem to have a habit of crashlanding or, in the case of his London River Park, sinking. Other misdirected enthusiasms include the cable car which also probably won't be ready in time to carry people from North Greenwich to Excel while the Trafalgar Square zip wire along with flags and sculptures hasn't been heard of for a while.

What's wicked? What exactly is going on with Hackney WickED? Or with London2012? The HackneyWickED Art Festival has succumbed to the blandishments of the London Olympics. It now includes the OPLC as one of its 'sponsors and partners'.

Following previous posts pointing out that the 2012 Olympic Park is not the claimed "largest new park in Europe in 150 years", there was some hurried hype revision and the ODA downgraded it to the "biggest park in the UK for 100 years" while other fellow traveller agencies drifted off message and settled for "biggest new park in London for 100 years" .
