Less Haste More Speed

Yesterday's tragic roof collapse at Charles De Gaulle Airport, provides an apposite reminder to the Greek authorities over the possible dangers of rushing building works.

As has been widely reported, building works in time for the 2004 Olympic Games (being held in Athens) are falling behind schedule.

As anyone, who has had building work done for them, knows when things start to fall behind schedule there is an almighty temptation for the builders to "rush and bodge".

We trust that the Greek authorities are fully supervising construction and will, if necessary, have the "guts" to say "we cannot complete certain works"; rather than hide a bodge job under paint and flowers.
