Anyone planning a major development on the River Thames in London will soon find out that you can't please all of the people all of the time. The Millennium bridge (AKA the Wobbly Bridge) and the Millennium Wheel (AKA the London Eye) both had their fair share of criticism when they first opened, with some suggesting the London Eye represented all that was wrong with Tony Blair's Britain. But Londoners have since embraced both - since it opened over a decade ago, the Eye has become one of the city's most iconic landmarks, while the Wobbly Bridge has managed to shake off its embarrassing nickname. Those familiar sights may soon be joined by the as-yet-un-nicknamed London River Park, a one kilometer-long floating pontoon whose developers are anxiously awaiting planning permission as I write.
