See thisislondon.co.uk/lite T HE 394ft tower designed by Paul Fryer for the 2012 Olympic Park in Stratford looks like nothing so much as a glorified electric- ity pylon. Even if it isnt the design thats eventually chosen, can the UK really afford to waste yet more money? And it doesnt matter that Boris Johnson has secured 12m from steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal for it: that money could go to much better causes. Dan, Southwark WHAT would the poor souls who actu- ally live in Stratford think about having to wake up with this edifice towering over the skyline? Not that anyone would actually stop to think about asking them. They are only ordinary people. Callum, London LONdON is home to Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, St Pauls Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and the London Eye. The Piffle Tower has no place in such company Bill, London FAir play to Lakshmi Mittal for donating his own personal money to the project but it would be better if he paid to do up a tower block in Stratford. At least that way he and Mayor Boris would be remem- b e re d for doing some- thing useful. F Greenwood, N4 i AM happy London remains a destination for creativity. We need to keep pushing the boundaries and trying new things -- and if it annoys small-minded folk along the way, so much the better. Bernard, London LOOK at the Louvre Pyramid. it was hated by the French at first but is now a triumph. i f w e always play it safe well miss out. Having said that, my first reaction was to spit my tea over my keyboard. Fiona Burnham, London PriNCE CHArLES wont be pleased when he reads about this.
