US diplomats add a moat to their expenses at $1bn London embassy

(TIMES ONLINE) — The United States has unveiled plans for its new $1 billion high-security embassy in London — the most expensive it has ever built.

The proposals were met with relief from both the present embassy’s Mayfair neighbours and the residents and developers of the Battersea wasteland where the vast crystalline cube, surrounded by a moat, will be built.

PID COMMENT: Note that this ’embassy’ is a cube, TWELVE stories high. Sound familiar to anyone? It even has a sort of ‘sea of glass’ (the moat). What’s next? Twelve gates?  Hmm….
