To Orwell Today,

Hi Jackie,

Looks like another monstrosity is going to blight the historical landscape of beautifull Dorset. This time with the help of BIG BROTHER a solar pyramid is scheduled for Poole. Pictures can be viewed online and further details on BBC site.

Dorset unveils new landmark plan. BBC, Dec 10, 2007 (Plans for a giant 147ft (45m) high sundial-style landmark in Dorset have gone on show to the public. Poole council is considering the "solar pyramid" as a tourist attraction for the town. The structure - twice the size of Tyneside's Angel of the North - should have been built in Derbyshire but the designers decided to switch location. The council will unveil details and answer questions on the proposal at a public meeting on Monday night. The scheme has already sparked heated debate in Poole with some calling it a waste of money while others have hailed it the "Angel of the North for the south coast".)


they're building a pyramid in dorset
somewhere out near Poole bay
it's going to be enormous
be seen from miles away

it's going to be solar paneled
don't ask me what it's for
i guess it's in the name of modern art
but what's it really for?

they built an iron eyesore
on the Poole quay yesterday
no one really likes it
but it still stands there today

they're building a giant pyramid
designed for BIG BROTHER'S friends
you'll be able to see it miles away
it's the modern trend

Seasonal greetings,
Ray Wills

Greetings Ray,

That's quite strange about the Poole pyramid, especially in these Orwellian days of "1984" where the four main structures of BIG BROTHER were gigantic pyramids that dwarfed the surrounding architecture and where the structure of society was a hierarchical pyramid:

"Four buildings towered vast and white above the grimy landscape.
They were startingly different from any other objects in sight.
They were enormous pyramidical sructures of glittering white concrete,
soaring up, terrace after terrace, 300 metres into the air...."

"At the apex
of the pyramid

All the best,
Jackie Jura

PS - If the Poole pyramid is to be twice the size of the "Angel of the North" it really will be seen from miles away.

Angel of North

"Orwell's wife Eileen had been born and raised in South Shields and she is buried in Newcastle. Several times on his journeys to and from Jura Orwell stopped in Newcastle to visit Eileen's grave. As we passed the "Angel of The North" I snapped a photo in rememberance of her for Orwell." ~ from JOURNEY TO ORWELL'S JURA
