Future of London put on Ice


Water company bosses plan to tow icebergs up Thames
By Lewis Smith
The Times May 17, 2006

Transporting water by road or via a national grid has been rejected because of the scale of the shortages and the costs
TOWING icebergs from the Arctic is among the measures proposed by water chiefs to solve emergency shortages.
The prospect of icebergs sailing up the Thames Estuary to keep London and the Home Counties supplied with tap water seems far-fetched but is under serious consideration by Thames Water.

Make sure those icebergs aren't in Canadian waters - bet the UK regrets giving us our own constitution now!

We're specifically looking for one with the letters "TITANIC" impressed on it.
