LONDON 2012: A RUBBISH OLYMPICS…
“Highly-sensitive monitoring has been carried out on the site during the earthworks programme and this has detected a small amount of low level radiological finds in the soil in the area. This soil, with mild radioactive properties present due to the past industrial activity over the last 100 years or so, is being managed so that it presents no risk to public or workers.”
“It has become clear that the real priority is the avoidance of negative PR and of any delays to the delivery schedule – and the less that was known the better. The ostrich-like approach led to real injustice and left the workforce and local population vulnerable.”
“Taking this PR risk looks to have been unavoidable . The waste includes material that could not be disposed of to any landfill in the country and may well have been refused even at the specialist radioactive waste repository at Drigg. The conditions for acceptance at Drigg would also have meant external scrutiny – which could have been highly damaging. Reburying it on site looks like a gamble they had to take.”
“Mixing the radioactive wastes with lots of non or low radioactively contaminated soils etc scraped from around the Olympic site is nothing more that sharp practice – it defies national government policy that radioactive wastes should be concentrated and contained and not, as is the case here, diluted and dispersed.”
“After all of the Olympic razmatazz has passed this very long-lived radioactive waste will remain, it will require management and safeguarding for tens, hundreds and more years, and its presence will blight the use and future development of the Olympic site.”
Hi Tap, I am getting back to form again, as I have just had another Post banned from The Daily Mail Comments, this one related to The Royals, The Brain Dead objected to comment regarding Nuclear Lizzy’s Off Shore Bank Accounts, I mentioned it relating to her charging her ‘SERVANTS’ for recent Photographs, or perhaps it was the ‘RIDER’ Feudalism is Not Dead.
“Imagine that”. When the unthinkable becomes the reality. Leyton Marsh
“Imagine That” does not just reveal the extent of excavation and surface dumping of toxic material on the site but also the authorities harsh treatment of individuals who dare to question their methods. You can read more about the issues here and here
Film maker Sasha Andrews worked closely with Mike Wells to create his film “Gold Dust” in which Iain Sinclair highlights the excavation and burial of contaminated radioactive material on the 2012 Olympic Site.
Of the Leyton Marsh excavations, the Olympic Development Authority spokesman says “our work is subject to the same high standards we adhered to during the construction of venues on the Olympic Park.”..
How reassuring is that?
On the Olympic Park they buried over 7,000 tonnes of radioactive waste without any prior regulatory inspection or planning approval at all.
OLYMPIC PARK RADIOACTIVE WASTE SCARE AS REGULATIONS BREACHED
Mike J Wells, July 2009
“You are reminded that Remediation Change Notes [legal documents allowing work to continue] are intended to be issued and agreed prior to works being undertaken. The submitted Note is retrospective and therefore gives the Local Planning Authority no opportunity to comment on the adequacy of the proposed measures prior to them being carried out.”
