    It's been fenced off for at least the last 4 years.
     
  5. some of it maybe, there's certainly been more closed off in the last year or so.

    Victorian sea defences might need some maintence who knew?:facepalm:
    The cunts behind the i360 not only got a fuck off loan from the council also got the ferris wheel to fuck off:mad:
    If we had to have something pointlessy batshit a reproduction of the daddy long legs railway was the way to go:D
    Who wouldn't want a mini mobile pier?

  7. We have lift off. The passenger "pod" made it's first journey to the top of the pole yesterday evening.
    I'm a bit disappointed it seems to stop a good way short of the very top, the mirrored bottom is quite cool though.

    I like it. Reminds me of the big needle thing on O'Connell St, back in Dublin.

    £15 a go for normal folks and £25 for 'priority' visitors. And it's now called the British Airways i360.

    I'd prefer it if the West Pier was back, thanks.

    Corporate bullshit that the majority of Brighton didn't want, & certainly didn't want to pay for.

    Local residents get a price reduction at certain times of the day. It is an eyesore that sadly i can see from my flat,entirely out of sync with the beautiful regency buildings.I am not sure it will make much money outside of the summer holidays.

    Even in the fucking summer on hazy days you're not going to see fuck all further than a few miles - & not forgetting the 180 degrees of fuck all!

    I'm going to ask to go up for free when the sea mist rolls in.

    That's what i was thinking.Do you think it will stay there for long?
     
  14. Mr.Bishie

    Mr.Bishie They only call it class war when we fight back

    It'll stay for as long as it's paid for I suspect. God knows what the salty sea air will do for it of course!

    It looks like a factory funnel from the ground and from local viewing points.

    What the fuck is this horseshit? Why would you build something like that? What possible fucking reason?

    Fucking hell.

    A smooth, rungless pole stretching up, the summit only for the elite who can afford it. Great view if you're at the top, looks like shit from below.... It's rather emblematic of society, isn't it?

    Ugh, I'm going back to Brighton for the first time in 5 years (lived there for 5 years before) forgot that this was actually finished,

    On a misty day only the bottom half is visible from the ground.I would say it's a massive business risk dependable on good, clear and non windy weather.
