    did anyone watch newnight last night when they were covering the kajaki dam debacle?

    I remember the coverage mass coverage and the docos covering the move to get that damn turbine up there but didnt realise they never put it back together.

    It's not 'news' - at least to anyone other than the BBC. It's been publicised widely that the turbines would not be fixed - I've posted on it, a couple of years ago, I'm pretty sure, for one. No-one in the know ever really expected it to ever work.

    I'd only heard the reports of when its in it will etc.... then hadnt picked up on any more bar the usual fighting and the yanks taking over.

    didnt realise they had chinese workers to put it in who fcuked off, I just assumed we had an old timer who know how it was done back in the old days when we rebuilt the reich and a bunch of scrotes to do it.
