Fourth span wobbling

I see that close inspections have revealed an alarming state of decay in a large, increasingly reviled UK structure. Unprecedented levels of corrosion have been uncovered in the very heart of this hulking monstrosity. At least 350 nuts have been found to be of inadequate stature. Lacking any firm foundation they have been susceptible to uncontrollable spinning and the cracks are now becoming all too apparent.

Many of these nuts have only been in public service since 1997, yet some have failed almost from their first day of employment. So many of these nuts are now breaking free that the entire ugly edifice is in imminent danger of collapse. Although the hideous behemoth was due to be replaced in 2010, it is surely now advisable to scrap it forthwith.
