For that much money, in fact for a lot less they could have built a 'historical theme park' the like of which the world has never scene: A full scale medieval castle and monastery like Fountains could have been built and filled with actors etc. It would have been bloody brilliant. A couple of weeks ago on that 'Castles' programme they calculated that a castle such as Caernarvon could be built today for about £50 million or 1/15th the cost of a giant meaningless white tent that is now empty.
The government (Tories and Labour for starting and finishing the project) should be ashamed!

Dont forget tho, the vast majority of that massive budget went back into British Industry.
The project had the potential for greatness, but was poleaxed by Government meddling and the Stupid British Press.
I did allright out of it tho, it just about paid for my first Alfa I reckon.
