1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

The fact that it was close does not bother me at all, the fact that the people paid to spot these things failed miserably is of more concern

Standard measurements that must be used for comparisons are:-

Double-decker bus
Football Pitch
Wales.

For the latter, in the US, it's a State, or for Europeans outside of the UK, Belgium (although I've seen Cyprus). Divide accordingly, e.g. 'half the size of a football pitch'.

In the media, no other comparisons are permitted.

also one in Bristol, a glorified Asda.
Is the the one in Cribbs that you can see from the motorway? I remember seeing "Asda by Wallmart" logo...

That said, Wallmart has an even worse reputation in US than Asbo does here.
